TEXAS: Gay Couple Told Not To Return To Restaurant, "We Don't Serve Fags Here"

Via KLTV-7 in Texas:
"We don't serve fags here." That's what a Pittsburg couple said they were told while leaving a local restaurant. The men went to eat at Big Earl’s Restaurant in Pittsburg for breakfast Tuesday morning. They said they enjoyed their food, paid for their meals, but it’s what the waitress said on their way out that ruined the whole experience. Collin Dewberry, who was leaving with his partner, said the waitress told them they do not serve a certain type of person at that restaurant. The word she used was derogatory and targets homosexuals. Collin and his partner Kelly Williams said they have lived in East Texas their whole lives and have never been called that word before. “We’ve never had that kind of hate displayed to us before,” Dewberry said. They explained that the waitress then recited the following phrase: “Here at Big Earl’s we like for men to act like men and for ladies to act like ladies, so we want you to never return.” They had eaten, paid, and had no idea they had done anything wrong. “It was just so nonchalantly, almost like she was reading a piece of paper,” he said. Well, she was. That phrase is posted on a piece of paper on the front door of the restaurant.
