San Diego Mayor Bob Filner Banned By Hooters
Even Hooters has standards:
Hooters locations in San Diego will no longer be welcoming embattled San Diego Mayor Bob Filner into its doors, citing respect for women and a belief that people should have standards.
The Republican Party of San Diego Executive Director Francis Barraza tweeted a photo of the sign at one of the chain locations in Rancho Bernardo. “The mayor of San Diego will not be served in this establishment,” the sign stated.
Hooters did not immediately respond to POLITICO’s request for comment. Director of marketing for HootWinc Melissa Fry told Slate that signs went up at four San Diego locations.
“It’s not a political move for us in any way, shape, or form. We’re strictly taking a stand for the fair treatment of women. At our franchise alone, we employ 1100 beautiful, talented women,” Fry told Slate.
No word on whether area strip clubs will be joining in the boycott.
