A lesbian couple who say they were subjected to homophobic comments from a chef when they went out for dinner responded by offering a unique ‘tip’ on their restaurant receipt.
Ellie Parker and girlfriend Lucy Stenger were out on Valentine’s Day and, like most couples, they were in a romantic mood.
But they say that when they were dining at Asahi Japanese Steakhouse in Lafayette, they were treated so badly that Ellie just had to share their experiences.
She wrote on Facebook that she wasn’t normally one to complain on social media, but the dinner service warranted it.
“I took my girlfriend out to Asahi, in Lafayette, for our first Valentine’s Day together.
“Our chef came to grill our food for us and was asking everyone if the person with them was their boyfriend or husband. He got to my girlfriend and I and asked where our Valentines were. We told him we were each other’s Valentines.
“We were holding hands mind you. Clearly a couple. He proceeds to say, ‘well it is legal, but it’s such a waste to not have a man’.
“Later he continues to insult our relationship by saying he could come home with us to ‘heat things up’.”
Ellie said that she was appalled to receive the treatment, and finished: “I cannot believe I paid over $50 to have my relationship insulted and sexualized.”
The couple left a message on their receipt for the ‘tip’, reading: “Don’t tell lesbians they need a man on Valentine’s Day.”
The restaurant offered them a refund, reports Grub Street , as long as they removed the Facebook post, which has gotten more than 7,000 shares, and it remains online.
A Facebook page for the restaurant has been deactivated since the story went viral, reports Yahoo .
