The anonymous letter was handed to an member of staff yesterday morning – and cops have launched a hunt for the writer.

It read: “Dear p**fs. If I had known that you are a f***ing gay then I would have given your shop a wide berth.

“I will be returning to get my money back as I don’t want any of your hands near any food. You should be shut down.”

Michael told the Daily Record: “When I first looked at it I thought it was a joke, but then it sunk in and I thought I’m not taking this lying down.

“My husband was more upset than me and we thought we have to try and find the culprit.

“We can’t think of anyone who would send a letter like this, I’m lost for words. I’ve never received anything like this in my life.


“I’m quite a strong person but this ripped the stomach out of me. Who in this age would write this?
“My 90-year-old mum lives with us all night I worried that someone was going to throw a bottle through our window. It’s no way to live.”

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “We can confirm that a complaint was received on Thursday 19 September 2019, and enquiries are ongoing into this hate crime.”

Michael has been with husband Stephen Whyteside for 19 years
