NYC Asian Restaurant Refused To Host Gay Wedding Reception Because Gay Dudes Mess With Their Feng Shui
NYDN - The owner of a small chain of Asian restaurants — two in Greenwich Village, of all places — canceled a same-sex wedding party after saying gay and feng shui don’t go together, a lawsuit charges. Newlyweds Barrett Greene and Thomas Eng say the owner violated their civil rights. Greene, 50, is a plumbing contractor from upstate New York, and Eng, 38, is a Manhattan-based computer professional. The couple contends that a senior manager of Amber Village — a man identified only as Mr. Fong — refused. “Fong was visibly angry and told Ho that he didn’t want any ‘gay parties’ at Amber Village,” the suit charges. “Fong instructed Ho to ‘make an excuse’ and tell Greene that his rehearsal dinner could not take place at Amber Village and that his wedding could not be catered by them either. “Fong also told Ho that it’s ‘very bad’ for Amber Village to book ‘gay parties’ and that big groups of ‘gay partyers’ are especially bad for feng shui.”
Listen you don’t need to be an ancient Chinese philosopher to know that a gay plumber fucks with your feng shui. That ain’t prejudice, thats just a fact. You got your plants and your waterfalls all set up to make sure the chi is flowing. Furniture facing the windows to get the energy right. And along comes the gays and it all goes to shit. Acting all flamboyant like they’re the center of attention. Judging the decor and critiquing the style. Just bringing their butt sex vibes into your spot and tearing down the mood.
I know people will be quick to bash Mr. Fong in this situation, but think about if you were hosting your own party. You got your apartment all set up – get the extra chairs out, set them up surrounding the TV so everyone can watch the big game. Get out all the liquor and booze and set up a table where everyone can make drinks. Music at the right level. Got the AC on so its nice and cool. You’ve got just enough room for everyone to come and watch the game, booze, eat and party. And then all the sudden your buddy calls you and asks if he can bring two friends – a gay plumber and a gay computer nerd. You’re tellin me you wouldn’t be concerned about the vibe of your party with those two strolling in the joint? You think your pals sitting around talking about Barstool and sports wanna walk on eggshells around them? Who wants Barry the Plumber and Tommy the IT guy at their party? Not me. Not nobody.
