“Women Defends Naming Her Restaurant -> Fat Ho Burger”


Lakita Evans is keeping the name of her new burger joint despite the growing protests from civic-minded people who say the name “Fat Ho Burgers” is offensive to a small segment of society.

Evans says that people are offended by the name simply because they aren’t familiar with urban slang. “It’s not calling people a ho. It’s just like they say, ‘Oooh that ho is big,’ or, ‘That ho is tight!” she told Fox News.

In the black community, the term “ho” is freely applied to people not things., and other local business owners are not in agreement with the name.

They think the 23-year-old is just using the name as a publicity stunt to draw attention to her business.

Pastor Marsha Martie, owner of the nearby Gospel Cafe, said: “[It] would’ve been nice to think a little more sensitively.”

But Evans, who tips the scales at over 200 lbs herself, says people should be more concerned with what’s going on in the world rather than the name of her burger joint.

“Look what’s going on in Japan. It’s like clear this world is not gonna get any better. Why cry and be depressed? The economy is bad. Somebody gotta keep a sense of humour around here,” she said.

      • She coulda got a bargin basement Fat Hoe Joint? I mean if the resturant was already built and went out of business limits the need to purchase utilities and seating. If she got a loan from the bank it could have handled all other expenses. She is a Minority, Woman and black (special grants for these criteria’s, if so no loan to repay). So its possible. If the Ho’s do their job selling buns she can keep up with her expenses. Because she named her business Fat Ho it doesnt mean she is a stupid Ho.

  26. Double-edged sword. On one hand she has her own business but on the oher had she named it Fat Ho Burgers. At least she is getting way more attention and advertising than if she named it Mary’s Burger Place. She looks much older than 23 but that’s good she’s so young with her own restaurant. Maybe I’m not with the right crowd but I haven’t heard ho referred to as objects.

  28. well everyone is talking about it and it’s all over FB so I say mission accomplished. I disagree with the name but he she owns her own business! betta than waiting on a check from the man.

    It’s her business she can name it what she wants and if people don’t like it then don’t eat there and it will soon be gone. But judging by the video with people hanging out the door…well, she’ll be around a while.
