John McAffrey says that when his employees walked out into the parking lot of Partners, the gay bar he owns in Oklahoma City, on the night of December 29 they noticed that someone had vandalized one of the cars. The next night, the same person came back and vandalized the front door.
Two nights in a row at the end of 2020, someone in an early 2000’s Chevy Silverado was caught on surveillance video vandalizing the property. The first night they attacked with soup.
“They came out and somebody vandalized one of the cars in the parking lot with apparently what was soup on it,” McAffrey told KFOR News 4. The next night he found another mess, this time splattered across the entrance to the bar.
“It was everywhere,” he said. “We first thought somebody got sick and then once we got closer, we realized that it was, it looks like blueberries.”
In the surveillance video, a car can be seen leaving the messes. “they pull up, throw it out the window, slow down for probably like 10 seconds,” McAffrey said. He says he doesn’t know why he or his bar is being targeted, but it’s not going to scare him.
“It was completely childish,” he said. “There’s better ways to handle something if it is targeted at a certain individual but it’s not going to stop us for continuing and having somewhere safe for everyone in the community to come to.”
