The incident occurred Saturday night at a Victoria nightclub when , 21, said he and his partner danced together to the country song "Cowboys and Angels," the Victoria Advocate reported."
James Douglas, 30, Meyer's gay lover, is quoted as saying that, "So, you're telling me it's ok to bump and grind my boyfriend to the song, 'Bubble Butt,' but we can't dance a two-step."
According to the Houston Chronicle, "The men said a manager approached them and told them Cactus Canyon had a policy barring two men from dancing together to country music. Meyer's partner, , 30, said the manager told them they could dance together to rap or hip-hop music, but not country."
