Christian Black Man Allegedly Kicked Out of Restaurant for Wearing Large Cross Necklace

A black customer at an Indianapolis restaurant may have a genuine beef. Not with the food or service, but a beef with a dress code that forbids large chains to be worn outside shirts.

Jerry Bond could have just put his cross necklace under his shirt, but instead decided to leave Kilroy’s. His friends are organizing a protest.

INDIANAPOLIS — A group of disgruntled patrons is planning to protest a restaurant in Indianapolis after a man said he was asked to leave because of his necklace.

Jerry Bond said that he was singled out unfairly.

“They said ‘Well, you’ve got to remove your necklace, this one, because they said it’s a large necklace,” Bond said.

A night out with friends quickly turned into a confrontation with one of the bouncers at Kilroy’s in Broad Apple after Bond wore a cross on his chain inside the restaurant.

“The bouncer comes back over, really bad attitude, [and says] ‘We’re going to ask you to either tuck your necklace, remove it or you have to leave,” Bond said. “I’m not going to tuck my cross in because of my beliefs. I believe in wearing this cross and what it represents.”

Bond said he left the restaurant while friends stayed behind to talk to the manager about what happened.

The Kilroy’s dress code is posted at the entrance to the restaurant. For jewelry, it says no large chains outside of a shirt.

Minister David Latimore said the manager could not tell the group what the restaurant defines as a “large chain.”

Latimore said he spoke to the manager in person and sent the owner an email to further discuss the policy. He even posted a video to Facebook that has more been viewed more than 40,000 times.

Latimore says his friend was singled out because they noticed other people wearing larger necklaces.

“It was a horrible situation and I mean it was embarrassing just to go somewhere and try to enjoy friends and company and get embarrassed like this for no reason. It’s like I was just singled out for no reason,” Bond said.

With no response from Kilroy’s, the group is planning to protest.

“Send a clear message to Kilroy’s, if you have a business in this city, you should treat your customers a certain way and for us to turn a blind eye to it and allow them to continue to treat customers this way, it’s just not right,” Latimore said. “It’s something I won’t stand for.”

My libertarian streak tells me that any business should have the freedom to serve or not serve any patron for any reason. Jerry should let it drop.

  1. The eternally aggrieved blacks are always looking to be provoked. He’s going to hide behind his proud to be Christian bullshit defense. The bouncer and restaurant know what they’re dealing with……..the excessive outer jewelry is thuggish looking. Plus it could encite a feral ape bar fight with an theft attempt. Of course he’s not capable of thinking in those civilized terms.

    • Obviously this is a negro establishment…
      (why else would they absurdly require a “bouncer”)…
      That cross and chain are not extremely oversized (not Mr T style bling…)….
      With such extreme nigger savagery everywhere accosting this dormant negro over this trivial crap is the stupidest thing I ever heard…
      Yes, we know about niggers and their jaysus scam but he wasn’t actually doing anything….
      I remember 25 years ago doing work on the front of a jewelry store owned by a nice Syrian yarmulked jew repeat customer (he was actually a nice personable guy) on “Main St” in my then 80 percent White neighborhood (now about 40 percent White)….In the windows they had a oversized 3″ jeweled cross….I was AMAZED how many White people spotted that cross and went in to ask HOW MUCH it was…..
      Since we’re on the “cross” topic check out this great song “Stained Glass Cross” by the band “Down” (Phil Anselmo from Pantera on vocals…)…
      This is “Stoner Metal”…

  2. …but I bet if iy was a sixpointed star of rothschild it woulda been ok…

    Agree completely that any business has a right to do business [or not] with whomever they wish, for any reason, but, looks like maybe they picked on this brutha solely for his jewelry.

  3. You can usually work out what’s previously gone wrong in an establishment just by looking at the rules they have in place. I work in Healthcare, and most rules and policies there are reactions to some earlier debacle. I would anticipate that hospitality/food service works much the same way.

  4. “Jerry Bond said that he was singled out unfairly.“

    I bet he really believes that.

    “It’s like I was just singled out for no reason,” Bond said.”

    We’ll see, some of us disagree. If you are going to go around looking like a nigger gang banger, then expect to be treated like one. You are the one trying to act and be accepted as white.

    Try harder.

    • He was singled out tho,if lil wayne came in flashing thousand dollar bills around you think they gonna kick him out?! yeah not likely the manager was probably a hardcore atheist and was irratated by his christian jewelry

  5. “I’m not going to tuck my cross in because of my beliefs. I believe in wearing this cross and what it represents.”
    Exactly. It’s what YOU believe, so what’s the problem with tucking it in?
    Virtue signalling?
    Looking for an argument?
    It’s MY belief that any business has the right to trade (or not) with whoever it so chooses – the same right any individual has.
