I see there’s been somewhat of a fallout for Stacey Campfield over those comments about gays, bullies and AIDS. (You know, because they were so brilliant and insightful.)
Apparently, the owner of Bistro at the Bijou gave the good state senator the boot yesterday afternoon.
Campfield, local comedian Spanky Brown, reporter Dan “The Man” Andrews and radio talk show host Hubert Smith went to the restaurant to eat, when owner Martha Boggs pretty much told Campfield to get the $&%* out.
(From what I understand she called him a homophobe, but there was also a choice word that preceded it. Heh.)
Anyhoo, Dan told me that as they were exiting, Brown said: “Wow, this is the first time I’ve ever seen two black guys walk into a restaurant and a white guy gets thrown out.”
(What’s that expression? You shouldn’t crap where you eat?)
For his part, Stacey was “very calm, very professional and very understanding,” Dan said.
They ended up having lunch at Latitude 35 on Market Square.
UPDATE: The Metro Pulse talked to Martha this morning: Click right smack here for it it.
