Iowa Patch Poll: Did Bar Have Right to Ban Girl From Dancing on Platform Because of Her Weight?
Jordan Ramos filed a complaint after she said she was insulted about her weight and banned from dancing on a dance platform with friends.
You've probably heard about the young woman named Jordan Ramos, who says she was banned from dancing on a platform at the Union Bar in Iowa City after bouncers told her she was not pretty enough to dance there and "obviously pregnant."
There's two good questions from this case, but only room for one poll, although plenty of room in the comment section to discuss both.
- "Did the Union bar have the right to ban Jordan Ramos from dancing on a platform because of her weight?" While certainly tacky, does a private business have the right to decide what happens inside its doors? After all, size isn't a protected class as is gender, sexual orientation, race, etc. This is our poll question.
- The second question is did Iowa City overreact by ordering the Union to dismantle the bar following this controversy?
