Print Shop Proudly Refuses Service To Gays
Herald Embroidery in Oak Grove, Kentucky is so unabashedly anti-gay that a sign on the storefront's window brazenly let's you know that no LGBT person (or any "foul language") is allowed inside the store.
Thanks to JoeMyGod, we also have firsthand consumer testimony from a lesbian who was allegedly denied service by the pro-man-beard specialty print shop.
Jeri Vercetti reveals her story in a new Google review of the business:
My wife and I went into this shop to get shirts for my parent's anniversary. We went in holding hands and the clerks gave us dirty looks the entire time. We didn't understand why; maybe they thought we were suspicious? I confronted one of the employees and they directed me to a sticker in the window. It had a pride flag on it and it basically meant gays weren't welcome. My wife and I were heartbroken; we just wanted shirts made! But we wasted a trip for nothing. Guess we'll get our shirts online next time. So sad about this treatment.
We've reached out to Herald Embroidery for comment and will update the story accordingly.
