Steak and Catfish Barn in Oklahoma City has come under fire for it's anti-transgender bathroom sign.
The signs warn its patrons: "We do not have a transgender bathroom. So don't be caught in the wrong one."
According to Gay Star News
, restaurant owner Bob Warner has denied that the signs "threaten" and "attack" transgender people.
Speaking to NewsChannel4, he said: "We have a lot of redneck guys that come in here, truck drivers and everything.
"They're big husky guys, and I said 'Man alive! If their wife or little girl walked in that bathroom and a man followed them in there, I wouldn't have a restaurant.'"
Warner then states that he doesn't mind which bathroom transgender people use, as long as they're "dressed appropriately."
Warner claims he's trying to protect his business and his customers - including those who are transgender.
"I don't want to see nobody get hurt," he adds.
