Discrimination Suit Filed in Louisville – McDonald’s Employee Called Customers “Faggots”

Come on, people! We have a city-wide Fairness Ordinance for a reason! Discrimination on the basis of perceived sexual orientation is about the stupidest thing one can do. Stop this bull! McDonald’s should fire the insufferable, bigoted woman for using slurs. We may just hop down there this afternoon to take a film crew and ask some questions.

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a complaint with the Metro Human Relations Commission. God knows if it’ll ever get anywhere, but they’ve filed it just the same.

So check this out: Ryan Marlatt, Teddy Eggers and three of their friends stopped at the McDonald’s at 420 East Market Street (telephone 502.589.3753, manager is Phyllis) for lunch on July 26. While waiting for their food, a service worker behind the counter referred to them as “faggots” while talking to a coworker. The customers made it clear they weren’t there to be insulted and requested to speak with a manager. While continuing to wait, the woman behind the counter repeatedly called them “faggots” in front of other patrons, also referring to them as “cocksucker” and “bitch.”

So classy. A McDonald’s employee calling some gay dudes “cocksucker” and “bitch.”

Avenue Q: We Love You

Last evening we had the opportunity to see Avenue Q at The Louisville Palace and we’ve gotta say: GO SEE IT. Click here to buy tickets for as little as $25. There are five shows remaining through Sunday, April 27. If you enjoy our inappropriate crap here at Page One the least little bit, you’ll flip over this PNC Broadway presentation. It’s vulgar, inappropriate and we loved every minute of it. Very rarely do old ladies get uncomfortable– but they certainly did last night.

From the website:

AVENUE Q is Broadway’s smash-hit 2004 Tony Award® winner for BEST MUSICAL, BEST SCORE and BEST BOOK. A hilarious show full of heart and hummable tunes, AVENUE Q is about trying to make it in NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account. Called “one of the funniest shows you’re ever likely to see” by Entertainment Weekly, AVENUE Q features a cast of people and puppets who tell the story in a smart, risque and downright entertaining way. The New Yorker calls it “SUBVERSIVE and UPROARIOUS!” Recommended for ages 13 and up.

I can’t say much about it without ruining things. But. Uh. Drop all plans to see it. Do it. Here’s a better summary: hilarity, adult Sesame Street, occasional foul language, Gary Coleman, puppet nudity, Mrs. Thistletwat, hilarity, hilarity, hilarity, schadenfreude. Go. See. It.

Special thanks to our theater-loving Republican friend for suggesting we see the show.
