A restaurant in Indiana, Ind., allegedly asked a customer in order to leave because of the size of the mix and necklace he was putting on.
Jerry Bond was out together with his minister and some friends at Kilroy’ s Bar N’ Grill final month when he said this individual was singled out by a bouncer which came up to him and requested him to remove his necklace or even leave the restaurant.
“ The bouncer comes back over, really bad mindset, [and says] ‘ We’ re going to ask you to either stick your necklace, remove it or you need to leave, ” Bond said to WRAL . “ I’ m not going to stick my cross in because of our beliefs. I believe in wearing this particular cross and what it represents. ”
Kilroy’ s Bar N’ Grill has a posted dress program code outside the entrance of the establishment that will bans large chains worn beyond shirts.
Bond said he left the particular establishment while his friends remained behind and spoke to the supervisor.
Minister Brian Latimore asked the manger, FOX8 documented , “ So , I inquired him, ‘what is a large pendant? What does that mean? What size is huge? ‘ He couldn’t tell me. ”
Latimore said he followed up with the particular restaurant in an email asking in regards to the policy and the incident, but obtained no response.
“If you have business within this city you should treat your customers a specific way and for us to turn the blind eye to it and continue to keep treat customers this way it’s simply not right, ” the pastor stated. “ It’s something I won’t indicate. ”
The group prepared a protest Saturday in response to the particular restaurant’ s policy.
“It was a terrible situation and I mean it was humiliating just to go somewhere and try to take pleasure in friends and company and get uncomfortable like this for no reason, ” Bond told FOX8. “ It’s actual like I was just singled out pertaining to no reason. ”
