Man Discriminated Against For His Disfigurement
A cancer survivor with a slightly disfigured face has claimed that he was told to leave a food store because he was scaring away other customers who could see him.
The man, named as Kirby Evans had his left eye and nose removed after suffering from skin cancer seven years ago, the operation saved him but at a cost and he now sees discrimination on a daily basis.
On the Wednesday evening, Mr Evans decided to stop off at Forks Pit Stop in Walterboro, South Carolina. The survivor brought a drink and doughnuts before going to sit down in the little seating area.
However, according to reports, when Evans went to sit down, he was swiftly called into the managers office where she told him to either cover his face or leave, as he was scaring away the customers.
The 65 year old, Evans told news outlets: “The words that came out of her mouth hurt me so deep.” According to Kirby’s daughter, he was pictured leaving the store in distress and in floods of tears, she knew she had to respond to the events.
She posted on social media: “On 10/8/2018 my father (Kirby Evans) went into the gas station called the Forks Pit Stop to buy something to eat. He went and sat down at one of the tables but, before he could get seated at a table, the owner [Donna Crosby] grabbed him by his shirt and pulled him into her office. She told him: “If he was going to eat in here he would have to cover his face!”
She continued: “He left and went home in tears to tell me what happened. My father is a cancer survivor he lost his left eye and nose to this awful cancer. My father was discriminated against because of the way he looks.”
The story gets more shocking, the owner of the rest-stop responded, she said: “All I asked him in my office was if he could cover his face when he came in to eat, I would appreciate it. I do not see absolutely anything wrong with what I did.”
Kirby’s daughter was still not willing to accept the very mediocre apology and decided to set up a GoFundMe page for her dad, so far she has raised $75,000 in ten days.
