Ann Coulter Dines at Gay Restaurant in West Hollywood


The Huffington Post's Rick Jacobs hit West Hollywood's Murano over the weekend. The restaurant, owned by lesbian night club owners Robin Gans and Sandy Sachs and gay club promoter Jeffrey Sanker, is a popular new gay eatery. So Jacobs was understandably floored to see none other than Ann Coulter, known for her Falwell-praising gay hate, her "faggot" slurs, and her hobnobbing with "ex-gay porn star" Marines, feeding her piehole among WeHo's finest.

We contacted Jacobs, who offered Towleroad the photographic evidence (above).

Writes Jacobs in the HuffPost: Coulter_2"Notorious people have the right to dine where they please. I also think that they have to eat their own cooking. It's quite simple, really. If a person makes her money by being famous and that person has an addiction problem, she has the right to privacy to solve that problem. But if she proclaims her sobriety to get out of jail and then shows up at a bar, she has to expect that her public might inquire as to her truth. You can't have it both ways: sober for the police and the press; publicly drunk for real. In time, you are caught in the lie. It's one or the other, fame or privacy...How many adolescents in mid-America have heard Ms. Coulter saying they are 'faggots,' subhumans who should die, just so she could eat dinner at a gay-owned establishment and pay with blood money? How many lives have ended so that Ms. Coulter can giggle and guzzle in West Hollywood? I do not believe in bothering famous people when they are out in public. But Ann Coulter created her fame and fortune by cultivating a persona of hate. She has to be called to account. Next time, I hope the folks at Murano or any other public establishment will just say no to the Ann Coulters of the world. Let Ann Coulter eat her own cooking. I doubt she can stand the taste of what she dishes, but it's worth letting her try."

  1. Is this 1994? Is there still even the concept of a "gay restaurant?" What makes a "gay restaurant"?

  2. I hope that someone in the kitchen had the good sense to spit in her plate.

    I don't understand why someone didn't take her by the arm, drag her to the front door and kick her ass to the sidewalk.

    She makes her living, and a damn good one at that, by demonizing us and by fanning the flames of right-wing hate. Why anyone in the gay community would tolerate her presence among us is beyond me.

    She's another clown that needs to be sidelined and exposed for the hypocrite that she truly is.

    It really is just too bad that she didn't choke to death while she was there. Oh well, maybe next time.

  3., heavy gay patronage, location in a gay area. Similar criteria to a "gay" bar I guess.

    Why do I feel slightly guilty over wanting to hit her with a cream pie if I had seen Ms. Coulter in person at a gay restaurant?

    I thought the same thing about the spit. Having worked in restaurants before, spit would be the least of her worries out of all the things I saw pissed off serving staff and cooks did to food.

  5. So tell me, other than the photographer, did ANYBODY else in the restaurant realize they had a viper seated in their midst?

  6. You can't spit in the food of someone who doesn't eat.

    The best thing to do would be to serve her piss instead of the Chablis she drinks like water.

  7. Spit is totally the right answer! I mean come on, how stupid do you people sound with your reverse discrimination? Say you and your BF/date/etc went to a "straight" restaurant and even such a thought was considered by the staff because you are gay.

    Ann Coulter is entiled to eat wherever she wants just as everyone here does. What she does on her political platform may be questionable but its not like she set the place on fire (kind of like the one the gay owners did to Mickey's, also in West Hollywood).

    If we keep thinking of completley dated concepts of exclusively "gay restaurants" and exclusively "gay neighborhoods" and exclusively "gay clientele" we will continue to be compartmentalized and not able to really be accepted by the mainstream. But then again I can imagine someone who goes only to Elmo and Food Bar not even knowing there is a world outside of 8th and 9th Avenue.

  8. Jake stfu. People don't got an issue with straight people going to the place. Just Ann Coulter and the people like her. It seems really fucking strange since she's got this Anti-Gay agenda behind her.

  9. jake

    Serving staff spit in food, drop food in the trash and then put it back on your plate on purpose, drop on floor and back on plate on purpose, piss, buggers, etc for a ton of reasons. For example, you are known as a bad tipper, you are rude, you are ann coulter, etc. That is the reality of eating out. I bet servers have spit in your food quite a bit over the years. Just guessing that you aren't the nicest person in the world.

  10. Well, I regularly bitch on my blog about the rat problem and now the dead-birds-infested-with-west-nile-virus problem going unchecked in West Hollywood, but I had no idea such large, foul rats were lurking in our dinning rooms!

  11. Wait. That's a woman?

  12. I couldn't eat in a gay resturant
    that serves that bitch! The last time I checked, a restaurant has the right to refuse to serve anybody they choose. Would the
    owners of a jewish deli serve
    Hitler? I think not!!

  13. They allow beasts to eat in restaurants now?

    Posted by: albert ross | Oct 29, 2007 9:43:46 AM

  14. She's so fake! Isn't her boyfriend a liberal Jew? I have no idea how he can stand her.

    Posted by: Jason | Oct 29, 2007 9:44:09 AM

  15. Ann Coulter was eating?

    Posted by: sam | Oct 29, 2007 9:47:57 AM

  16. Is it possible that this wasn't actually Ann Coulter at all, but just a tranny who is unlucky enough to look just like her? I mean, how could you really tell the difference?

    Posted by: Anonymous | Oct 29, 2007 10:06:24 AM

  17. Oh Jake - it's not "reverse discrimination". No one cares if Coulter is straight. This is specific hatred directed at a particular person (Coulter) due to her virulently anti-gay behavior.

    There are many predominantly African American restaurants with African American ownership in Manhattan, and they don't have a problem serving white people. I imagine they WOULD have a problem serving David Duke. Similar standards in this case.

    If the phrase "gay restaurant" bothers you so much, think of it instead as "predominantly gay restaurant with gay ownership".

    Posted by: Gregg | Oct 29, 2007 10:15:57 AM

  18. I think it's more "outdated" to defend people like Coulter eating in restaurants owned by fags and dykes.

    Posted by: Joe G. | Oct 29, 2007 10:36:13 AM

  19. Seems like she only did this to get some press being the attention whore that she is. The worst thing we could do is to simply ignore her and maybe she will go away.

    Why did everyone attack Jake, he makes a valid point about tolerance.

  20. If you're upset with Murano serving the vile Ann Coulter, please email them and tell them so:

    Posted by: Stenar | Oct 29, 2007 10:37:17 AM

  21. Or better yet, think of it as more proof that she's really not as dumb as she pretends, and simply knows that her bombastic comments, blond hair, and slinky dresses are what earns her living. As with so many disgusting right-wingers (including Bill O'Riley), I doubt she truly believes most of what she says. She just wants attention, and the money that attends it.

    That said, I would have fed her rat poison. Hypocrisy is among the most hideous of traits.

    Posted by: Paul | Oct 29, 2007 10:38:30 AM

  22. Oh, puh-leeze! I'd bet Sanker would serve ANYONE! Money's money. Unlike, e.g., Miami's White Party whose entire profits go to fight AIDS, Sanker's profit sharing appears more miss than hit. Sure, the Ivy pitches pennies at charity, but what % of the megabucks from the Palm Springs Tina Fest et al., goes to fight AIDS?

    And just because his partners in this feed bag are Lesbey Anns, why assume they aren't Repugs like her? "Mary Cheney" and her partner in fascism ring a bell? Condosleazy Rice and her "house mate"? Coulter could have well been the guest of faglet Cyd "Reagan Was My Hero" Ziegler of and pimping Coulters books fame. And don't expect someone like Sanker to insist on hiring politically conscious staff who would have recognized the card carrying cunt and thrown her out on her Swarovski swastika.

    Throw in Jake "her political platform may be questionable" Kapo and with friends like this who needs Ann Coulter?

  23. Jessica H. Christ! It seems like there's at least one "simply ignore her and maybe she will go away" retard in every group of posts about these fascists. How OLD the fuck ARE you? Do you still believe if you write Santa he will bring you what you want for Xmas? Grow the fuck up. Wait. This just in: the Jews ignored Hitler and he went away. My mistake. Sorry.

  24. If I had been running the kitchen in that restaurant it would have been a scene straight out of the movie Waiting. "Ladies and gentlemen we have are first official BIOTCH of the day, what is your vote? Unanimous thumbs down from the line cooks and wait staff would have gotten her food "the full treatment." After all, she deserves nothing less!

    Posted by: Johnny Lane | Oct 29, 2007 11:03:45 AM

  25. Leland, I bet if we all ignored her, she would go away. So let's all right here and now agree to pretend she doesn't exist. Now, she might have what's called an 'extinction burst' where the behaviors we're trying to extinguish just flair up, but it's important that we stand strong and hold off reinforcement completely. Good. That's settled. See how easy that was, everyone? Quite simple when you reduce everything to textbook behavior of learning psychology. If it works on rats, it could work on Coulter!! (I'm kidding, ppl)

    On to the REAL issue...

    She eats?
