And in other news, an Indianapolis man, a mister, and several other people are planning to protest against Kilroy’s Bar N’ Grill dress code policy, after an incident that occurred last month. According to Minister David Latimore, one of the people accompanying him to the bar was asked to leave by the bouncer because he wore a flashy cross.
Bouncer Told Client to Hide Flashy Cross or Hit the Road
Jerry Bond, an Indianapolis resident, recalls last month’s incident involving an overly-zealous bouncer and a symbol of faith.
During a recent press interview, Bond told a reporter that, last month, he went to Kilroy’s Bar N’ Grill with David Latimore, his minister, and two of his friends. Shortly after setting foot in the restaurant, a bouncer walked up to Bond and ‘kindly’ asked him to do something about the religious accessory he was wearing at the time.
Bond declared that the security agent informed him that the cross he was wearing around the neck was in violation of the establishment’s dress code. The security agent then asked Bond to tuck it in his short or to remove it. When the Indianapolis man refused to comply, the bouncer told him to leave the restaurant.
According to Bond’s claims, minister David Latimore and his friend remained behind to try to reason with the manager. When asked about the bouncer’s behavior, the manager told Latimore that certain accessories such as Bond’s flashy cross are not acceptable based on the newly-enforced dress code.
Apparently, the managed stood silent when Latimore asked about what was wrong about Bond’s cross.
After the incident, Bond, Latimore, and their friends planned on protesting in front of the Indianapolis restaurant. Latimore declared that this type of behavior should not be tolerated.
