Gary James, the proudy bigoted owner of Gary’s Chicaros
The proudly homophobic owner of a restaurant in Oklahoma is under attack by the gay community in a hilarious online campaign.
Gary James, who runs Gary’s Chicaros in the city of Enid, last week told the KFOR TV channel that he doesn’t want any “faggot” or “freak” customers.
“I’ve been in business 44 years, I think I can spot a freak or a faggot,” he said, adding “I really don’t want gays around.”
James went on to say: “Any man that would compromise his own body would compromise anything.” He apparently also has a problem with serving African-Americans, Hispanics, people with disabilities and people on welfare.
The city’s gay community and the wider world have now responded with an online campaign in which James’ restaurant has been re-branded as a “gay bar, salad bar” and a “Lebanese restaurant” on Facebook.
It has also been blessed with hundreds of reviews mocking the eatery and its bigoted owner.
“Food was terrible, but I love the diversity, and that is the owner is a big old Homo. I hear it’s the best gay bar in town, and the disco music is awesome,” said one reviewer.
Another commented: “I thought my “experimental” phase ended when I left college. Turns out I just needed to stop in to Gary’s Chicaro Club! Did you know that men have their own version of a G-Spot? Thanks, Gary!”
Other comments included: “Best black gay bar in all of Oklahoma! The food is awful and the drinks suck. But the drag show is not to be missed and on Friday night it’s an all-out sausage-fest of hot sweaty men dancing in thongs, gyrating all over each other!”
A Google Plus review page has also been set up and includes even more outrageous reviews of Gary’s Chicaros.
One woman wrote: “We had hoped for some fresh-faced, corn-fed Oklahoma farm boys and maybe a few cows, but the patrons were all fat, balding, elderly men parading around in fishnet stockings and high heels. That sort of thing may pass for excitement in Enid, but we had hoped that this hip little town had something more to offer.”
It’s not known exactly how James feels about the sudden notoriety his restaurant has found among gay and lesbian customers, but we suspect he’s not likely to be too pleased.
