An Arizona grandfather says Barnes & Noble discriminated against him and forced him out of a Scottsdale store because he was a male customer sitting alone in the children’s section.
Omar Amin of Scottsdale said he’s still outraged over the May 4 incident and is demanding an apology from the national book retailer…Amin, 73, said he was ousted from the book store after a woman shopper complained to a staff employee, saying she felt uneasy about his presence in the children’s area.
“I did not break any rules,” Amin told msnbc.com on Monday. “There was no sign posted that said men are not allowed in the children’s book area.”
Amin said he had been looking for books to buy for his two grandchildren, ages 7 and 5, when his cell phone rang. He said he sat on the floor by the windows and spoke quietly to a friend, he said…A store employee interrupted his call and said he needed to leave the store…
It never ends, does it?
