Ryan Marlatt and Ryan Teddy Eggers were visiting McDonalds in Louisville, Kentucky with a few friends on July 26th when they were harassed by employees. They were called “faggots” and “cocksuckers” by several of the employees and management failed to do even issue them a simple refund. The guys took their case to the ALCU and are filing an official complaint with the city.
“Although their complaints have gone unanswered by McDonald’s, Louisville has a law that protects people from this kind of treatment from any business,” said Christine Sun, a senior staff attorney with the ACLU. Earlier this month, an HIV+ man sued an Iowa McDonald’s for firing him because of his status.
