Oklahoma restaurant owner bans gays, minorities, disabled, unemployed from business
ENID, OK (KTRK) -- A restaurant owner in Oklahoma is under fire after saying he refuses to serve who he calls "freaks." That means any gays, African Americans, Hispanics, and those with disabilities or on welfare.
Many patrons are now boycotting the food joint, located in Enid, Oklahoma.
Gary James posted on a social media site that he does not want to serve gay people, minorities or people who don't have a job. One customer has already come forward claiming James turned him away because he is disabled.
"He created an issue. You only have one time here. You create an issue, you're out forever," James told KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City.
Many say that even the restaurant's T-shirt is offensive, with threats against Muslims, Democrats and members of many minority groups.
