“My boyfriend and I decided that we wanted to have a relaxing Monday. So we Prepaid $109 and booked a couples massage at ‘joy feet spa,’” Levenosa shared on Facebook. “When we arrived the manager refused to service us because we are two gay men. He made it clear it had to be a man and a woman. Even after we told him we already paid he still denied us the couples massage. Today my humanity has been tested.”
Levenosa tells Yahoo Lifestyle that at the beginning, he was confused by the person’s response. “I didn’t know if the Groupon was correct — I wasn’t sure what the problem was,” he says. “Once I found out, I was in shock… After [this incident] we called every single spa in Naples, Florida, and they all said that they perform massages on couples of all genders.”
Joy Feet Spa has since issued two apologies on their Facebook web page, writing that the supervisor misunderstood what “couple means” and asking if he may make it as much as them, akin to giving them each a one-hour massage at no cost.
However, Levenosa, who has not but been profitable in getting a refund, doesn’t consider the spa’s apology is real or honest. “I feel like they just apologized because of all the attention that they got and all the bad reviews,” he tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
When requested if he and his boyfriend would take Joy Feet Spa up on their supply for a free one-hour massage, Levenosa replied, “Heck no. I can’t go back there, all I’ll be thinking about is how they treated us when we first got there… People need to treat people how they want to be treated. It’s that simple.”
