Popular San Francisco Bar Accused Of Gay Discrimination
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A popular bar in San Francisco is being accused of discrimination after two women were ejected for allegedly responding to anti-gay remarks.
The website SFist reported that the women were kicked out of Zeitgeist after responding when “four big straight men” hurled derogatory slurs at the pair, shortly after the March For Marriage Equality.
On Facebook, the women called for a boycott of the bar.
“On Monday 3/25 a friend and I were called homophobic names by four big straight men at Zeitgeist SF. When we responded the bouncer kicked us out and two more straight girls shook their heads at us, told us to calm down and leave. This was about an hour after we marched for gay rights. Not one person in the bar came to our rescue. Not one”, the post read.
Zeitgeist claims the two patrons were kicked out for being drunk.
“the two ladies were asked to leave because they were highly intoxicated and became aggressive with other patrons and our staff. It had absolutely nothing to do with their sexual orientation”, a post on their Facebook page read.
