Photo of the Day: Pizzeria discriminates against AZ legislators

Yesterday Arizona tried to cement its reputation for passing the worst, most bigoted legislation when the State House and Senate approved a “right to discriminate” bill designed to legalize discrimination against LGBTQ people on religious grounds. It now heads to Tea Party Governor Jan Brewer – gee, I wonder if she’ll sign it.

Rocco’s Little Chicago Pizzeria in Tucson, AZ quickly responded with a sign aimed at AZ legislators, which the restaurant posted on their Facebook:

Sign in the window reads: We reserve the right to refuse service to Arizona legislators

A clever marketing ploy? Sure, but I’m on board. If you’re hungry and in the Tucson area, Rocco’s is probably a good place to give your business.
