Blind Man Says Brooklyn Popeye’s Owner Refused To Serve Him
“He kept saying, ‘no dog, no dog, no dog,’” Willie Richards told CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff.
Richards, who has been completely blind for 20 years after an injury, was told to leave the Popeyes because of a sign on the door saying, “no pets allowed.”
“He pointed to a sign, but we explained to him that’s for regular dogs, but this is a service dog,” he said.
Richards and his guide dog Yolette said federal law allows service animals to accompany their handlers anywhere the public is allowed.
“I was appalled and shocked. I’ve experienced this before where first they are reluctant,” he said.
