Queerty is reporting that this lovely sign appeared in the window of a West Village Rite Aid yesterday. Rite Aid simply ain’t right.

Stiff Sentences Handed Down In Village Stabbing

Last summer a “gang” of seven young black lesbians partying near the Christopher Street piers attacked a passing straight man after he allegedly made a lewd sexual remark about “turning them straight.” The man was beaten and stabbed.
