Dang OJ…So It’s Like That…

5 Comments

I don’t know how I feel about this. Y’all help me out here…

According to this article from CNN.com, a steakhouse in Kentucky refused to serve O.J. Simpson. Article excerpt:

The owner of an upscale steakhouse said he asked O.J. Simpson to leave his restaurant the night before the Kentucky Derby because he is sickened by the attention Simpson still attracts.

“I didn’t want to serve him because of my convictions of what he’s done to those families,” Jeff Ruby said in a telephone interview Tuesday.

“The way he continues to torture the lives of those families … with his behavior, attitude and conduct,” he added.

Hmmm…post your comments, I wanna know what you think.

  1. I mean technically if he feels like OJ being there was creating an uproar that would hinder him from serving other patrons, then he can throw him out.

    I’m not sure how i feel about it to be honest…

  2. Yeah, but he didn’t put OJ out because of an uproar. He put a man whose peers said he was innocent out because he thought he was guilty. OJ could sue. Not saying he should, but he could. This is illegal.

  3. see I read where he said “he was sickened by OJ and the attention he received from other people.”

    If that’s the case he has a thinly veiled legal right to throw him out…

  4. i was at some bougie eating place the other day and they had a sign that said something like we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at anytime…

    sooo…

  5. twilla, why am i not surprised that you were eating at some bougie place…

    but yeah, i guess i was also bothered that OJ went along with it, after the man explained the situation to him. it’s probably not much that he can do, but for someone to say “i’m sorry, i want you to leave because i’m disgusted at the attention you’re attracting based on who you are”…that just doesn’t sit well with me. maybe if he were found guilty…
