A restaurant in Indianapolis, Ind., allegedly asked a customer to leave because of the size of the cross and necklace he was wearing.
Jerry Bond was out with his minister and some friends at Kilroy’s Bar N’ Grill last month when he said he was singled out by a bouncer who came up to him and asked him to remove his necklace or leave the restaurant.
“The bouncer comes back over, really bad attitude, [and says] ‘We’re going to ask you to either tuck your necklace, remove it or you have to leave,” Bond said to WRAL. “I’m not going to tuck my cross in because of my beliefs. I believe in wearing this cross and what it represents.”
Kilroy’s Bar N’ Grill has a posted dress code outside the entrance of the establishment that bans large chains worn outside of shirts.
Bond said he left the establishment while his friends stayed behind and spoke to the manager.
