UK bar incites controversy by refusing to serve customers wearing poppies

Paul Moore

An Irish bar in Luton has sparked outrage after asking any customers wearing poppies to remove them over Remembrance weekend.

Police were called to Bar 32 in Luton on Sunday after angry punters were thrown out for wearing poppies.

To make matters worse, the bar’s Facebook page updated their status with a post that only incited further controversy. The message has since been taken down but plenty of people managed to take a screengrab and share it online.

Naturally some of the replies that have been left on their Facebook page have been very heated.
