Melissa Langford, 34, got more than low prices when she went shopping at a New Orleans Family Dollar store. Instead, she got an earful of homophobic comments and was denied service by the foul mouthed cashier.
“My mind was blown. I couldn’t believe the things I was hearing this woman say,” Langford told the Times-Picayune. “It’s one thing if it was a customer in line being ignorant with her friends, but this is the cashier.”
Langford says she was the fifth customer in line at the cash register when she overheard the cashier say she hates gay people, that they are “sick,” and “they got somethin wrong in they head.” After Langford objected, noting that she’s a lesbian, the cashier became combative and refused to ring up her purchases.
