Hateful Restaurant Owner Gets Pranked Exactly the Way He Deserves (VIDEO)

Ewww! 18

chicaro clubGreat news, everyone! I think we've found the creepiest restaurant in America. A restaurant owner in Oklahoma won't welcome gays, people of color, or disabled people. Gary James, proud proprietor of Chicaro Club in Enid, Oklahoma, went on camera to expound upon his shamelessly bigoted perspective. "I really don't want gays around," he blithely mused. "Any man that would compromise his own body would compromise anything." Yeah, you wish, mister.

James doesn't just talk the talk. He also prints t-shirts with homophobic and racial slurs. What a shining beacon to his community! I'm sure the clientele are the most delightful people around.

When you see what the restaurant actually looks like, it just gets more depressing. I guess? Let's just put it this way: If you never manage to dine at Chicaro Club, you're not missing out on one of life's great experiences.

Offended pranksters have taken to Yelp for revenge, posting joke reviews like "the best gay and/or BDSM club in or around Oklahoma." (Looks like they took down their Yelp listing -- dang!) Someone even set up a Facebook page listing Chicaro as a gay bar.

Anyway, the consensus seems to be that almost everyone finds this disgusting. One diner admits he used to turn a blind eye to the bigotry (because the food was so good???) until he became confined to a wheelchair. Then he became yet another unwelcome customer.

I can't imagine why anyone would put so much energy into creating such a hateful, hostile environment in which to consume and digest food. Isn't this place going to put a bad taste in your mouth? Give you sour stomach and gas? I keep saying it: Bigotry is not delicious.

How would you feel about eating at a restaurant where the owner expressed these kinds of views publicly?

Although I don't agree with the hateful things this man is doing I also think Americans are hypocrites. Everyone gets so bent out of shape over free speech yet when you don't agree with someone's views free speech goes out the window. Can someone explain this to me????

@ icarm I am American and I have to admit I am a little confused by that as well. I do however think there is a big difference between having an opinion and being vocal about it and going out of your way to make others feel like shit. There is a difference between saying "gay people gross me out" and not letting gay people bank at your bank. He is discriminating at someone simply because they don't have sex the way he wants and because someone was born with darker skin. 

I am American and I am white. Not mixed with anything. He makes me so incredibly ashamed to say that out loud. He doesn't deserve to spend another second sharing this world with anyone.

In America you have the right to free, but you also have to deal with the consequences of what you say.

Annnnnnnnnndddd...... Wait for it......

SOMEONE is going to sue him, *eyeroll* and demand service. My veiw is if someone doesn't want me in their store, or their restaurant because I'm bi, or white, or have a vagina, or I'm Pagan or WHATEVER, I do not want to be in their place of business.

But someone is going to be the idiot that sues... Just wait.

@icarm - You don't understand what free speech means. Please buy a dictionary.

Haha zenezzy just made that so simple. Maybe I'm tired today!


@frostymelted I don't think they are saying they don't understand it. i think they were more so asking why free speech but then tons of backlash. But zenezzy already answered him/her and made it very simple.

Well, because this type of restaurant fits quite well in the South's culture. Lot's of white Southerners are no doubt DELIGHT with this place.

What an asshole.

Trust me, we Oklahomans are not at all delighted by this bigoted jackass. In fact, the majority of the people I know are boycotting this restaurant and trying to bring awareness to the owners despicable actions. How 'bout not stereotyping an entire state/race because of the actions of one person?
