…to refuse service to anyone. This is absolutely priceless and almost makes my morning. Of course, the lawyer had to get involved:
Simpson’s attorney, Yale Galanter, said the incident was about race, and he intended to pursue the matter and possibly go after the restaurant’s liquor license.
“He screwed with the wrong guy, he really did,” Galanter said by telephone Tuesday night.
Actually, it’s about a property owner exercising his right to refuse service. The owner of the restaurant says it’s because of Simpson’s past, and that he doesn’t want the kind of attention that Simpson attracts associated with his establishment. Good for him.
Unfortunately, I’m sure that Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson are right around the corner, eager and willing to set race relations back another fifty or sixty years.
