NYC Cafe Dumps Brown Coffee After Company’s Homophobic Tweet


San Antonio-based Brown Coffee Company sent out a homophobic tweet hours after the New York marriage equality victory, causing at least one NYC cafe to dump the brand.

RBC NYC Coffee noted Brown's tweet saying: "Although we won’t tell you what RBC stands for, we’ll let you know it doesn’t stand for intolerance and bigotry, therefore we will not be doing business with The Brown Coffee Co. anymore."

The coffee blog Sprudge notes: "In the days following, Brown has locked its Twitter account, deleted the offending Tweet, and deactivated its Facebook page. Brown can be reached for contact here and they run a WordPress here."
