Boy banned from restaurant for asking woman if she’s pregnant


TORONTO – A four-year-old boy was banned from a Monroe, Connecticut doughnut shop for asking a woman if she was pregnant. She wasn’t.

Rebecca Denham claims her son, Justin, was banned from the Doughnut Inn even after she had apologized on her son’s behalf.

“[The manager] said ‘he’s not allowed in here and I looked around, and said, ‘him?’ And she said ‘yeah, he’s rude,’” Denham WFSB 3 News.

According to the CBS affiliate, Justin and his mother were told of the banishment a couple of days after Justin asked the woman the seemingly innocent question.

“It looked like she was pregnant and I asked her if she was pregnant,” Justin said.

Denham apologized.

“Oh my goodness, I’m so embarrassed, I’m so sorry,” Denham said.

The woman reportedly accepted the apology.

The store owner did not speak with the Hartford news station.

Meanwhile the Doughnut Inn posted a statement on its Facebook page, claiming the store where the alleged incident occurred is not affiliated with the chain.

For now, Denham said she will be taking her business elsewhere.
