Cuddling lesbian couple told to water down & # 39; after they shared a kiss in a London Wetherspoon pub
Cuddling lesbian couple are saved to tears when bar staff told them to soften it after sharing a kiss in a London Wetherspoon pub
- Hannah Clifford and Leoni Malbon-Barker went for lunch at the Wetherspoon pub
- They had not seen each other for a while and so exchanged a kiss and a hug
- But a Coronet employee in Islington asked them to water down & # 39; after a complaint from a customer
- When they left, three men called to them, & # 39; bye dear ones & # 39;
A lesbian couple became & # 39; vulnerable and ashamed & # 39; left behind after staff at a Wetherspoon pub instructed them to water down their kisses and cuddles because a customer had filed a homophobic complaint.
Hannah Clifford and Leoni Malbon-Barker, both 21, had lunch at The Coronet on Holloway Road, Islington, and had not seen each other for a while and they shared a kiss.
But when they were served their drinks, one employee said that a customer had reported that they & # 39; saw each other's face off & # 39;
They felt uncomfortable and decided to leave, although the staff member told them that this was not necessary.
Hannah Clifford and Leoni Malbon-Barker, both 21, had gone to lunch at a Wetherspoon pub in North London. & # 39; I had my arm around Leoni and had given her a hug and kiss when we arrived because we had not seen each other all day & # 39 ;, Clifford said
But when they walked to the door, three men, suspected of having complained, allegedly made sexual gestures to them before they & # 39; bye dear ones & # 39; cried.
& # 39; I had my arm around Leoni and had given her a hug and a kiss when we arrived because we had not seen each other all day. But it wasn't anything ordinary because we were in public & # 39 ;, Clifford said Standard.
A waitress came by with their drinks, and while she said she didn't want to offend, she complained about & # 39; intimate, inappropriate touching & # 39 ;.
Mrs. Clifford said: At first we didn't understand what she meant, but then we both got very angry. We looked around to see who had complained, but everyone seemed fine. Then we saw three men stare at us and smile.
A spokesperson for pubs in Wetherspoon said they were investigating the Coronet incident on Holloway Road in Islington
When they left, they saw the group of men.
& # 39; Then the men started making sexual gestures and blew kisses at us, and called after us and called & # 39; bye dear ones & # 39;. & # 39;
Mrs. Clifford said they were going back to complain to the manager, who claimed he would try to ban the perpetrators, and also offered them a free breakfast that they did not accept.
The couple were regulars during their college days in nearby London Metropolitan and said they were too unsafe & # 39; and would never go back.
Wetherspoon spokesperson Eddie Gershon said to MailOnline: “An employee asked the couple to stop because they had received complaints from customers who said there was an intimate, inappropriate contact under the table.
& # 39; They were good at first and then decided to leave. & # 39;
& # 39; As for us, if a woman wants to kiss a woman, or a man wants to kiss a man in our pub, or a combination of those, that's fine.
& # 39; We are unsure of the background to this situation at The Coronet and it will be investigated. & # 39;
