Man Claims NYC Bar Denied Him Service Over Pro-Trump Hat

NEW YORK (AP) – A Philadelphia man has sued a New York City bar after he says he was denied service because he was wearing a hat supporting President Donald Trump.

The New York Post reports Greg Piatek says in the lawsuit that he and his friends were initially served drinks at The Happiest Hour on Jan. 28. But he says once a bartender noticed his “Make America Great Again” hat, he asked Piatek if it was “a joke.” He says a second round of drinks was “slammed” down on the bar.

The suit claims a manager later asked Piatek to leave, saying he was told by the bar owner that “anyone who supports Trump or believes what you believe is not welcome here.”

The bar didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.

You watch the responses.

This will be just fine, but don't let a baker refuse service for a gay "wedding."

Hypocrites.

1. This is big, big news. Please obsess over this for the next few months.

 

DU will be jealous of your ability to find crucial items of concern.

2. So it's

"no big deal," just as I noted in my comment in the OP.

How do you feel about shutting down bakeries?

7. I think it is of little consequence because, if he can prove his point, he will win his lawsuit.

 

You folks, on the other hand, feel that business owners can discriminate against anyone at anytime.

I'm the one being consistent here.

9. I'm being consistent as well.

If the bar wants to refuse service, that's up to the bar owner.

If a baker doesn't want to engage in business for a gay "wedding," that is up to the owner as well.

I don't see you posting on the left troll OP's, you know, the ones that don't even link to a news story?

Why is that? Why don't you tell them to grow up?

3. It's illegal in NY to serve a drunk person, and what sober person would ever wear that hat?

10. What sane person has to display their political beliefs on clothing?

Honestly, I've never felt so strongly about a politician to be caught dead endorsing them on myself.

This, if true, is why. Dumbasses will respond. Unless attention is what one craves, I'll pass.

I say "if true" because these publicized accounts are always questioned. Everything's a false flag.

13. Actually I agree

I prefer to not advertise myself or any opinion or belief via my apparel. I think it shortcircuits people actually getting to know me for who I really am.

5. NYC bars are perfectly free to eject obnoxious patrons...

and all of them welcome gay married couples, unless they become obnoxious.
