Indiana Pizza Owner Brags About ‘No Gays’ Policy, Gets Destroyed on Yelp
An Indiana pizza restaurant is under fire after its owners bragged about their “no gays” policy on a news broadcast.
Crystal and Kevin O’Connor appeared on ABC 57 to show their support for Governor Mike Pence’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act on Tuesday and were quickly met with a furious backlash online.
Crystal told ABC that, “If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” because apparently pizza is something gay people get for wedding parties.
“We’re not discriminating against anyone,” Crystal added, completely unaware of the definition of discriminating. “That’s just our belief and anyone has the right to believe in anything. I do not think it’s targeting gays. I don’t think it’s discrimination. It’s supposed to help people that have a religious belief.”
Her father, Kevin, added that, “That lifestyle is something they choose. I choose to be heterosexual. They choose to be homosexual. Why should I be beat over the head to go along with something they choose?”
You mean like if someone chooses a set of religious beliefs and beats others over the head with it?
In any case, the internet didn’t take kindly to the owners’ boasts and hit the restaurant hard on review site Yelp.
“In all my queer life, I’ve never known a gay to cater their wedding with pizza,” wrote Robert S.
User Carol M. wondered if the restaurant has “Gaydar installed at the door” and if the owners have “ever considered that you may be serving closeted homosexuals.”
Michael N. hit the nail on the head, writing, “This is a transparent attempt to fly the Christian martyr ‘mean Gays are calling us bigots’ flag in the hopes that other mouth-breathers in the area will rally to them and their crappy pizza the way Southerners rallied to Chick-Fil-A. Deny them the oxygen of your outrage and their uninspired fare will put them out of business in due course.”
