Coffee Roaster's Homophobic Tweet

New, 2 comments

RBC-NYC-sm.jpgSticks and stones may just break your bones, but hateful tweets can truly hurt you. Within hours of New York legalizing same-sex marriage, Texas-based Brown Coffee Co. tweeted, "No human law can ever legitimize what natural law precludes." This prompted NY-based coffee shop RBC NYC to post to its tumblr they would no longer do business with the roaster, which then deleted the tweet and its entire Facebook page. The tweet has caused a shitstorm and calls for a boycott. Eater National has more juicy bits. [~E~]
