Kentucky Gay Group Works to Shut Down Homophobic Bar Owner
"Members of the Fairness Campaign, along with other LGBT groups, spent the day handing out fliers, trying to convince people not to go to Woody's Tavern because of an alleged incident two weeks ago. Chris Hartman, Fairness Campaign says, "Woody's Tavern owner David Norton chased all of his customers out of the bar. As he did he yelled an anti-gay slur at them calling them all 'trashy faggots' and then referring to a group of African American patrons in his bar he said 'look at the color of their skin you know what's on the tip of my tongue.' It's not the first time Woody's Tavern owner, David Norton, has been accused of making these kind of comments. in August, he issued a public apology for comments made over a year ago."
Fairness Campaign announced its boycott last night.
