Arizona Man Claims Discrimination When Kicked Out Of Barnes & Noble For Browsing Children’s Books
A grandfather who was kicked out of a Barnes & Noble in Scottsdale, Ariz., says he was discriminated against for being a man.
Omar Amin, 73, was shopping for books for his grandchildren when a store manager asked him to leave the store and explained men weren’t allowed to shop alone in the children’s section, according to the Arizona Republic. A shopper had allegedly felt uneasy about Amin’s presence and reported him to employees.
Amin, who says he was on the phone when he was approached, maintains that he wasn’t doing anything wrong.
“There was no sign posted that said men are not allowed in the children’s book area,” he told MSNBC.
When the Arizona Republic contacted the company for comment, a representative said the worker “acted appropriately.”
Despite vouching for their employee, Barns & Noble has issued this apology:
…We should not have done so. It is not our policy to ask customers to leave any section of our stores without justification. We value Dr. Amin as a customer and look forward to welcoming him in any of our stores.
What WE want to know is, what kind of pervy, pedophile, freaks are living in Arizona that employees are worried about men in the children’s books section?!?! SMMFH
