Cops investigate threat on Brooklyn gastropub as hate crime

Someone doesn’t appreciate a Brooklyn gastropub’s white clientele — and he’s not too thrilled with its transgender customers either.

The NYPD is investigating as a possible hate crime two phone calls from a self-described Crips gang member to Midwood Flats, located on Flatbush Ave. in gentrifying Prospects Lefferts Gardens.

“The caller said he didn’t like the place because of the white people who go there,” a police source said.

On Wednesday, however, a bartender at the 2-year-old hot spot said the caller was offended at various types of customers.

“He didn’t like that we let in all types of people, including people who’ve had sex changes,” said the bartender, who asked that his name not be printed. “He said he was going to shoot the place up.

“He was going to come over and spray us.”

The distasteful suspect is being sought.
