X Factor star claims he was kicked out of bar because he is gay
A former X Factor star has claimed that he was kicked out of a bar because he is gay.
Jack Remmington, who appeared on the UK version show as part of the duo, Jack and Joel, says that he was kicked out of a bar/restaurant in Sheffield.
The 23-year-old wrote on Twitter yesterday (December 23) that he was kicked out of the bar, Forum, with his hands held behind his back.
“Wooo homophobia is alive and well,” he wrote. “Shout out to Dale for throwing me out of the club with my hands locked behind my back like I was being arrested.”
The singer said that the bouncers cited the dress code for kicking him out as he was baring his shoulders.
He was wearing a white vest with a shirt over the top. Remmington explained that he was wearing the shirt just off the shoulders when the bouncer approached him and asked him to adjust the shirt.
He added: “I asked why and he snapped my arms behind my back and threw me out.”
The singer said that when his friend tried to get his jacket for him she was “forcibly” pushed from the door.
“She [the friend] then asked why I was removed and he said there’s a “no shoulder policy (?!)”.
