After a gay couple alleged that they were asked not to return to a restaurant in Texas because they are gay, the restaurant's Yelp page has been pummeled with fake negative reviews. According to KLTV,Collin Dewberry and his partner ate breakfast at Big Earl's Bait House in Pittsburg, Texas and were about to leave when a waitress, who is owner Earl Cheney's daughter, told the couple not to come back. The waitress read to them a sign on the front door of the restaurant that says, "Here at Big Earl's we like for men to act like men and for ladies to act like ladies," and added, "So we want you to never return." When asked by the couple what she meant, the waitress apparently said, "We don't serve fags."
According to a local CBS station, Cheney says that the couple was asked not to return because their legs were touching, which is apparently "against policy," not because of their sexual orientation. Hard to believe, seeing as the restaurant's Facebook page claims that the waitress was misquoted and actually said, "We do not like fags." Because that is so much better. According to Dewberry, the pair was sitting on opposite sides of the table just talking. Cheney has refused to show reporters the surveillance video. Full story here
