NYC Restaurant Sued for Canceling Wedding Because Gays are Bad for Feng Shui
Barrett Greene and Thomas Eng are newly married, though their big day didn’t go down without a few dramatic twists and turns. After paying a $750 deposit to hold their wedding reception at NYC restaurant Amber Village, the couple were forced to first switch venues to a sister restaurant, before ultimately being cancelled on entirely by the owner.
The reason for the abrupt cancellation? Large groups of gays are just terrible for feng shui.
“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.”
Feng shui is the ancient art of placing objects within a space in their perfectly suited spot in relation to one another to channel luck and good fortune. So you can imagine how deciding where the power lesbians go when the bears are already being sat in that corner over there could prove to be a feng shui nightmare.
Or maybe you can’t imagine that. Maybe instead you’re thinking that Eng and Greene’s civil rights have been trampled over. In which case, the couple agrees with you and has filed suit against the restaurant chain, which by the by, has zero business being located on Christopher Street if they intend on discriminating against gays.
Do you think the couple has a strong case on their hands?
