Earlier this year, a waitress at Big Earl’s Restaurant in East Texas told a young local gay couple that they could “never return” because the restaurant “doesn’t serve fags.”
Collin Dewberry and Kelly Williams say the discriminatory slur was hurled at them as they were leaving the restaurant after they had eaten their meal and paid. “We’ve never had that kind of hate displayed to us before,” Dewberry said.
Big Earl, the restaurant’s owner, confirmed the events to KLTV, pointing to a sign on the restaurant’s front door that essentially bars feminine gays and butch lesbians from entering the establishment. It reads: “Here at Big Earl’s we like for men to act like men and for ladies to act like ladies.”
But maybe you knew all that already. What you might not know is that Collin and Kelley recently showed that they are incredibly good sports by appearing on a Tosh.0 “Web Redemption” segment.
They talk about Grindr in small towns, their experience in the restaurant, and a lot of other wonderfully ridiculous nonsense.
Oh, then they stage a fantasy gay restaurant to open across the street from Big Earl’s, which notably features photography from a local artist whose sole medium is nude pics of Big Earl.
While these two are riding the wave of attention from this unfortunate incident (and hats off to Daniel Tosh for turning something ugly around on its heels), we can only hope Big Earl and his daughter are still dealing with the negative press.
Oh, and Big Earl — your food is terrible.
I went to Yelp to post, but they scolded me! 🙁 Be sure to check it, call their # on the listing and let them know how horrible they are. Hopefully that backwoods Earl and his screwed up daughter/lover will be out of business and back in their trailer.
Just call and place large take out orders. *67. They deserve it.
Notice what a “lady” the daughter is…
“incredibly good sports”?? Take it as a serious matter,they do!
The guy with the beard was super adorable, but he dominated the conversation, his bf hardly spoke.
I think if they tried really hard, they could squeeze in a few more stereotypes.
The South is a really horrible place
That was hilarious!
fist time I ever laughed at a tosh bit.
Went to the YELP page for Big Earl’s. AWESOME!
Here is one of the YELP reviews.
“I got really lost and ended up driving through this horrible run down town in Texas, and decided to stop by. The waitress dressed very promiscuous, which was nice, but the food and service was really bad. And on our way out, I saw the old man owner giving head to a kitchen boy by the dumpsters. Come on! I have children. Very inappropriate to see.”
