For decades, El Coyote on Beverly Boulevard has been serving up cheap drinks and flavorless Mexican food, developing a regular clientele of the gastronomically challenged.
The restaurant was in the news in 2008 when it was revealed that one of its owners donated money to the hate-filled Proposition 8 campaign, even though many of El Coyote’s customers were gay. Ever since, many people have been boycotting the place. (In addition to those who boycott it because of the bad food, that is.)
But today’s Beverly Press reports that El Coyote recently hosted a casting call for a movie titled, “Too Old to be a Hooker… Too Young to be a Madam.” According to the paper:
Beverly Boulevard was lined with “pimps” and “prostitutes” on Dec. 6 during a casting call… approximately 30 people donned the appropriate attire in hopes of being cast for the film… which is inspired by true events… a story of “champagne decadence, dangerous liaisons, fame, bisexuality and betrayal in the Hollywood Hills.”
So, the owners of El Coyote are strongly against long-term gay couples being able to get married and take responsibility for each other – but they are happy to use their business to cast a movie about prostitutes and pimps?
Interesting standards these people have…
