“D.C. police are investigating after a restaurant owner in Petworth reported receiving dozens of phone calls, some threatening to “kill the staff,” which the owner believes are tied to a monthly drag queen brunch and a separate drag trivia night.
Most of the comments were homophobic in nature, Bran-Leis said, noting that her staff members are nearly all part of the LGBTQ community. She said the calls came from four different phones with different voices, some of whom said “they were going to burn down the restaurant and kill the staff.”
