If Arizona legislators want to make it OK for businesses to refuse service to gay customers, one Arizona business might just refuse service to those lawmakers.
Rocco’s Pizzeria in Tucson, Ariz. voiced its opposition to a bill that would legalize anti-gay discrimination, after the measure was approved Thursday by the state Senate.
The bill later passed the state House and will now go to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s (R) desk.
Rocco’s, describing itself as a “a longtime employer and feeder of the gay community,” said on its Twitter account that it “reserves the right to eject any State Senators” it sees fit.

By the end of the day, Rocco’s went even further, posting a sign on its door that explained the new policy.
