“It’s just a hat at the end of the day,” Turner told WBZ. “I don’t really understand why people can’t just express themselves anymore, everybody has to get mad.”
Before he recorded the video, Santos allegedly tried to shove Turner’s face in his food.
The bartender, who is of Mexican descent, said Turner was minding his own business. “The lady didn’t agree with his hat and I just kept telling her it’s alright, he’s not doing anything to me why is it even a problem,” bartender Geo Macario said.MORE NEWS: Johnson & Johnson Vaccine 'Particularly Good For Mass Vaccination Campaigns,' Boston Doctor Says
