Pro-Gay Harlem Coffee Shop Gets Flack From Customer For Marriage Support
Yesterday the Harlem coffee shop Chipped Cup put out their daily chalkboard with a drawing of the now-famous red equal sign and the message "Peace, love, equality." That made one customer super angry. Via New York Magazine:
When a neighbor informed [owners] Ding and Cantor they had just lost a customer with their political stance, the coffee shop's owners wrote back, "Thank goodness." That's when things started to get a latte worse. "GO FUCK YOURSELF," the user fired back. (The post has since been deleted.) "You asked for it now. Get ready for some publicity!" The user also apparently posted a one-star review/PSA on Yelp. "The owners here are trying to cram their political agenda down your throat," the user wrote. Because, you know, a sidewalk chalkboard with two horizontal pink lines drawn on it is tantamount to ideological force-feeding.The customer first posted the below tweet then followed up with a similar barrage with supporters of Chipped Cup which curiously includes the claim that she never said she's against same-sex marriage. Her Twitter profile claims that she's a "pianist in the opera world" (that might prove problematic) and contains the hashtag #TCOT, which stands for "top conservatives on Twitter."
twitter exchanges is that coffee shops must be condemned for expressing opinions and that anybody who disagrees is a fascist trying to silence her opinions. But what can you expect from a CPAC attendee? Anyway, if you're up in Harlem, show some love to Chipped Cup on Broadway between 148th & 149th.
UPDATE: We may be dealing with a homocon. This tweet was deleted almost as soon as it was sent.
