A gas station owner in Georgia is under fire after he posted a sign that says “only f*gs wear their pants down”

“ONLY 'FAGS' LIKE TO KEEP THEIR PANTS DOWN!!!! PULL YOUR PANTS UP!!! OR BE PROUD TO BE “A FAG”!!!!” reads the sign posted Thursday at the PCA Food Store in LaGrange on Hogansville Road.

Owner Anil Patel told Atlanta's WSB-TV that he posted the sign because he was offended by customers who wear sagging pants.

“Since that sign went up there, I don't see no pants down in my store,” he explained. “Because they read the sign and they decide what they want to be.”

“It really offends me by them coming in [to the store], pants down. So, it is not that I'm against them, gay people or anything like that, but just trying to prove a point. If you are going to come in my store, make sure that you have your pants on.”

A clerk at the store, Kerrie Williams, said she's gay and okay with the sign.

Joshua Southern, on the other hand, said he would no longer shop at the store.

“There is other ways to deal with it,” he said. “You say, 'Pull your pants up. Nobody wants to see your butt.'”
