NYC: Strange reaction to marriage equality at Harlem coffee shop

What a strange story to be coming out of NYC today...

Leesa Dahl, a piano teacher and an opera accompanist, apparently was offended somehow by the pro-marriage equality sign on The Chipped Cup, her local coffee shop.

So she posted on the shop’s Facebook page: ’You just lost two local customers with your political sandwich board… We were so happy when you joined the neighborhood and were faithful, but alienating the majority of the population is a really irritating and dumb move. We will encourage others not to patronize your business.’

The conversation continued to escalate when the owners responded with a benign "Thank goodness"  to which Ms. Dahl responded "Go f*ck yourself."

On Twitter she added: It’s too bad @ChippedCupNY discriminates against 98% of their customer base by being H8ful!’

In response, here is what the owners of the coffee shop wrote: "Hi Everyone, I’m the owner of a coffee shop in New York. Yesterday we put out our sandwich board with a message in support of Marriage Equality. This was one woman’s reaction:"
