– TNA Wrestler Booker T was scheduled to picket Vito’s Deck House, a sports bar in Houston, Texas because he claimed they racially discriminated against the Christian faith.
On October 26th, Booker and WWE Superstar The Boogeyman went to Vito’s Deck House to watch an NFL football game. About 15 minutes after they arrived, a bartender came up to Boogey and asked him to take off his cross, or leave, because it violated the dress code. Booker got pissed off and asked to talk to the manager. The manager explained it was part of the bar’s dress code. Booker asked to see where the code was posted, and it wasn’t. Booker then refused to leave and told Boogeyman, real name Marty Wright, not to leave.
Police were called and told Booker and Wright to leave, then filing a report. Booker claimed he saw two other people in the bar wearing crosses but they were not approached by staff and told to leave. However, those two people left the bar when they saw Booker and Wright being kicked out over the cross. Booker scheduled a protest march and wanted to get as much publicity as possible to tell people about the sports bar.
