50-year-old Richard Hunter has risked life and limb in service to our country, and the way he was repaid at a New Jersey Subway restaurant will make your blood boil. Hunter suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and has been given a service animal to help with his condition. He says the animal often senses his anxiety even before he does.
The Americans with Disabilities Act maintains that places of business must allow clearly marked service animals inside their establishments, but a couple of unpatriotic sandwich chefs don’t seem to care. Subway shop manager, Mitul Ahmed, ordered Hunter to leave the restaurant as soon as he saw the service dog. Now, he has made national headlines for his disgusting disrespect of an American hero.
Astonishingly, the owner of the Patterson Subway location, Zaphir Pathan, took his employee’s side in the matter, stating that the has the right to refuse service to anyone he pleases.
Subway’s corporate office issued a statement, though neglected to apologize to Hunter:
“Since the Americans with Disabilities Act requires that sevice animals be admitted to restaurants, we will remind our franchisees about this law. We regret that this took place and have reached out to the franchisee so he can work with his staff to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”
