Texas Restaurant Discriminates Against Gay Couple

Big Earl's sign

A Texas restaurant told a gay couple they didn’t serve their kind.

Joe.My.God reports:

“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.

Hopefully when word gets around, they won’t be serving anyone.

    You have got to love the comments going on this dive’s Google Review. I’m sure it’s the same on Yelp, etc. Looks like Big Earl’s gonna be known for his Little Mind more than his food.

    Should plan a party for about 40-50 guest, when every one shows up they should all be gay.

    Can’t help thinking where the “h” in Pittsburg went, probably to scout out hell
    where all haters will gather.

    I guess the female patrons are expected to act like “ladies” although the females that work there are not. A lady wouldn’t use the word fag.

    Its a locally private owned business. They can deny anybody they want. Makes me want to go to Texas just to support the company for standing up for what they believe in.

    This is all an act. Earl brings in his business by acting and dressing in an outrageous manner. However, the food is horrible, and the place is filthy. I mean really filthy. Flies everywhere. No toilet paper in the rest rooms. Dirt in the drinking water. Eat here at your own risk.
