A woman has been caught on camera throwing paint at the entrance of a New Zealand gay sauna, but the manager has taken an untypical view.
Gabriel Clifton, the manager of Centurian Sauna in Auckland, says a woman is clearly seen on film emptying a can of white pain in the doorway.
‘The footage shows that this was planned and that we were clearly the target,’ he said.
A few days earlier, he received a call from a woman who said she needed to speak to him ‘as she needed to pray for my soul’.
Clifton assumes the woman was behind the paint attack.
‘Her 10 second act of pointless hate has cost me at least three days cleaning, sanding and painting,’ he says.
‘I’ve dealt with enough of these morons in my life that I am not affected by it. But I am really annoyed that she used a boring off-white. I would have much preferred fluorescent green.’
Police are investigating the incident.
