Court Has Bad News For Trump Supporter Who Sued NYC Bar For Discrimination

Greg Piatek, an accountant living in Philadelphia says that a Manhattan bar, The Happiest Hour kicked him and his friends out after they complained about rude service by the bartender. At the time Piatek was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. Piatek claims he was told by the staff:

Anyone who supports Trump — or believes in what you believe — is not welcome here. And you need to leave right now because we won’t serve you.

Piatek decided to take the bar to court and sue for discrimination and that the incident “offended his sense of being American.” SPOILER ALERT: He lost. 

On Wednesday a judge tossed out the lawsuit on the grounds that the law doesn’t protect against political discrimination. The bar’s lawyer also pointed out that, “supporting Trump is not a religion.”

There wasn’t a whole lot of sympathy swirling around Twitter. 

There were some people who had concerns over the ruling. 

But others stepped in to explain the difference.
