The owner of a Georgia gas station and convenience store has sparked the ire of community members after posting a sign outside of his business featuring an anti-gay slur.
As WSBTV reports, the sign, displayed at PCA Food Store in LaGrange, Ga., uses an anti-gay slur to describe customers coming in with baggy pants.
“Since that sign went up there, I don’t see no pants down in my store, because they read the sign and they decide what they want to be," PCA Food Store owner Anil Patel told the news station. Customers seemed split on the news, although one of the store's clerks, who identifies as a lesbian, said she wasn't bothered by the sign.
An undeterred Patel has since said he hopes to have bumper stickers made with the slogan.
Last year, a lesbian couple dining at a North Carolina cafe was handed a letter from the restaurant's owner that decried homosexuality as being against God's will.
Similarly, a waiter at a popular Italian eatery in Kansas was shocked to find that customers had left behind an anti-gay message on their bill in lieu of a tip.
More Amy's Baking Company Hell RHU!
Last night there was a big surprise on the season premiere of Kitchen Nightmares as Gordon Ramsay revealed his side of the story, showed more footage, and a Kitchen Nightmares crew went to Arizona and interviewed the cat-loving psycho bitch, herself!
It's juicy fun for sure, especially when Amy talks about her cats. In short, they are just as insane as ever and it looks like they've sort of become a tourist destination. I don't know how much food they are actually selling -- or t-shirts, but they say they are not giving up.
If you don't have time to watch the full bucket of crazy, you can go to FOX later, but check out this hilarious short animated spoof that we somehow missed last year in posting all the memes that Amy inspired. It's so funny Gordon showed most of it on the episode!

Better late than never.
A New York woman has finally received three letters mailed from loved ones. The letters just arrived 45 years late.
Susan Heifetz of Brooklyn received a call last week from the current tenant of an apartment she was once shared with her family. The man told Heifetz that a letter, dated June 26, 1969, had recently arrived for her, the Brooklyn Paper reports.
"I said 'tell me what else is on the envelope,' at which point she said to me 'on the back is a lipstick mark,' and at that point I started to cry," Heifetz told CBS New York. "This was my mother's thing at the time -- to always seal it with a kiss."
The letter turned out to be a birthday card from Heifetz's mother, who has since passed away.
But that's not all Heifetz received in the "snail mail." Days later, another letter mailed in 1969, written by a former boyfriend who was serving in Vietnam, arrived in the mailbox of Heifetz's former home. There was also an additional birthday card from her brother, Barry, that the Brooklyn woman's local post office intercepted.
The U.S. Post Office doesn't have an answer for why it took so long for the letters to arrive, but it's not the first time a note has arrived in the mail after decades. Last year, a postcard mailed in 1967 reached its final destination in Oklahoma 46 years later.
Despite the 45-year delay, it seems Heifetz is just happy to have the letters in her hands.
"I've been crying since Wednesday," she told the New York Daily News this week. "I'm flipping out. This is not normal to get three cards from 1969."
