Pizza shop apologises for Caitlyn Jenner bathroom signs
A pizza shop in has apologised for bathroom signs featuring Caitlyn Jenner.
Dacosta’s Pizza Bakery in Worcester, Massachusetts, was criticised online after pictures of its bathroom doors were shared on Facebook.
The men’s door featured a picture of Caitlyn Jenner pre-transition as an athlete, while the women’s door featured a picture of Caitlyn Jenner post-transition.
After the pictures blew up online, Dacosta’s was barraged with negative reviews from supporters of transgender rights — and subsequently barraged with positive reviews from opponents of transgender rights.
The pizza shop told Patch that the signs, which have been up for more than two years, will be removed.
Owner Marc Felicio wrote on November 9: “I thought this was clever and light-hearted attempt at humour. I never meant to hurt anyone, but clearly I was wrong.”
He added: “These signs have hurt the transgender community, and for that i am sincerely sorry.
“I may have a tiny penis… BUT I HAVE NO HATE FOR ANYONE.”
“I will be taking the signs down in the morning and i will be sending a heartfelt apology to each and every one of you who reached out to me.”
In a separate post, Felicio confirmed he had taken the signs down and bizarrely referred to his own penis.
