UK: Woman Banned For Wearing Burberry
A woman has been refused entry to a pub in Aberdeen, Scotland, because she was carrying a Burberry umbrella.
Security staff at the Filling Station said they would not admit the woman because the London-based brand had fashionable with football hooligans.
The unnamed woman, however, claims she did not resemble a "soccer casual" at all.
"I was wearing the best of clothes, but for some reason they had a real problem with my bag and umbrella," she said.
"It's absolutely ridiculous and I think they took things too far."
The Filling Station has since apologised, but manager Maureen Lethorn said the venue had experienced "a number of incidents" involving troublemakers wearing Burberry clothes.
"Unfortunately this woman arrived shortly after a group of young lads were turned away for wearing Burberry," Lethorn said.
