A manager at a Vancouver restaurant has been fired for denying service to a customer wearing a 'MAGA' hat.
Darin Hodge was fired from Stanley Park Teahouse after he asked the customer to take off his Make America Great Again hat.
'I stand by my decision to ask the patron to remove his hat. The MAGA hat has come to symbolize racism, bigotry, islamaphobia [sic], misogyny, white supremacy, homophobia,' he explained to the Global News.
'As a person with a strong moral backbone, I had to take a stand against this guest's choice of headwear while in my former place of work,' he wrote.
