Closing for Snowpocalypse is ‘uber gay’

imageIn what we hope is our last screed about Atlanta’s embarrassing Snowpocalypse, here’s a lesson in how not to announce your business closing due to the weather. It’s probably best not to use “gay” eight times and compare the homos to pedophiles. We tend to take offense to that. But that’s exactly what Charlotte’s Y2 Yoga owner Tanner Bazemore (photo) did in an email to clients this week when snow prompted him to shut down. He offered this: “Closing completely because of some white stuff is being uber gay!" And this: "Pedophiles who feel hurt with my words send your comments to" John Walsh at "America's Most Wanted." At least Atlanta’s weather-related closings had a little more class. With the likes of Bazemore and Bill James, it’s no wonder that Charlotte didn’t make the list of 15 Gayest Cities in America.
