Indiana Pizzeria Forced to Close After Backlash for Refusal to Cater Gay Wedding
The owners of an Indiana pizza restaurant have closed their doors after receiving backlash for stating that they wouldn't cater a gay wedding.
Trace Gallagher reported on "The Kelly File" tonight that the owners of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Ind., have strong Christian values and said they supported Gov. Mike Pence for signing the controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
Gallagher said that yesterday a local TV station came into the restaurant to get the owners' opinion about the new law.
“We’re not discriminating against anyone, that’s just our belief, and anyone has the right to believe in anything,” Crystal O'Connor, the restaurant owner's daughter, said.
Gallagher reported that prior to the interview, Memories Pizza only had two Yelp reviews. After the local interview aired, the restaurant was bombarded with over 1,200 "negative and nasty" reviews that Yelp has tried to remove.
He added that they have closed the restaurant because the phones won't stop ringing and they're unsure of which pizza orders are real or fake.
"Because I don't believe in something they want, they see fit to be angry about it," Kevin O'Connor, owner of Memories Pizza, told Gallagher. "It's really confusing to me. I'm just a little guy in a little tiny town. That's where I've been all my life. It's just been ugly. I don't know what to call it."
