Anthony Davis Turned Away From Restaurant Over His Attire
NBA Pelican’s player Anthony Davis was turned away from West Hollywood eatery ‘Katana’ this week, because of a team logo hoodie. According to Page Six, the 6 foot 10 inch tall athlete attempted to buy dinner at the restaurant when he was stopped by a door man. His hooded sweater was the problem. Davis was hungry and offered to pay extra for a private dinner in one of the restaurant’s closed off rooms, so his attire didn’t offend other restaurant goers.
The doorman refused and Davis calmly left. The owner heard about what was happening just a moment too late and ran to the door to accommodate the absent athlete. Witnesses say he “freaked out” on the door man over his judgment.
So, what was the huge deal over a hoodie?
If you’re wondering, yes there’s a dress code at the restaurant. Katana’sv website states “beachwear, athletic tops and T-shirts . . . are not permitted in the restaurant.” This is also at the discretion of the owner.
Anthony Davis is hard to mistake for a common person, who might be “bringing down” the ambiance with athletic gear. Why couldn’t the door person politely excuse his self and ask the owner?
It’s probably obvious.
