A man was denied service at a Florida restaurant this past weekend because he supported LSU, according to a post on TigerDroppings.com.
Don Bass, a Violet, La. native, was not welcomed into Harry T’s Lighthouse in Destin, Fla., after he walked in wearing a LSU hat. Bass tried to reserve tables for a group during the Florida-LSU game, but when the group arrived they were refused service.
According to the post on Tiger Droppings, the Florida Alumni Association asked the restaurant to not allow any LSU fans into its seating area. Harry T’s Lighthouse regularly hosts Florida alumni watch parties.
The post mentioned a statement from a restaurant spokesperson that said LSU “does not carry a good name here at Harry T’s,” and LSU “fans” had attacked Harry T’s employees in the past.
