A restaurant owner in Oklahoma City, America, has been criticized for a sign which allegedly threatens trans people.

The Steak and Catfish barn has put up a sign which reads “We do not have a transgender bathroom. So don’t be caught in the wrong one. Thank you, Bob.”

The Bob on the sign is Bob Warner, the owner of the restaurant. He has spoken in defense of the sign and has claimed that the sign was a “warning” to trans people but that the restaurant would “protect” them.

“We have a lot of redneck guys that come in here, truck drivers and everything,” he told NewsChannel4. “They’re big husky guys, and I said ‘Man alive! If their wife or their little girl walked in that bathroom and a man followed them in there, I wouldn’t have a restaurant’.”

Warner added that he doesn’t mind which bathroom transgender people use so long as they are “dressed appropriately.”
