Woman kicked out of bar for being Cowboy's fan?
Houston, TX — A woman says she was kicked out of a Houston bar because she's a Dallas Cowboys fan, but the bar's General Manager says the incident has nothing to do with sports, Drew Karedes has both sides of the story.
Gail White, Cowboys Fan, "I'm sure if you stay out here long enough.. you'll get somebody because it's about that time!"
With a car decorated like this and a wardrobe full of Cowboys gear. Gail White knows she's bound to draw attention and she welcomes friendly rivalry, "All Cowboy fans are not horrible, just like all Texan fans are not horrible."
She's acknowledges that not everyone sees it that way, but says she's never experienced anything like what she says happened inside Coaches Sports Bar and Grill.
Gail White, "Well, you hear in the background, 'Dallas sucks!' And all that coming out of the same bar that we're being treated like this. So you just heard that."
White claims a bartender at the 290 and Jones location gave her and her friend the cold shoulder when she complained about a drink and she's convinced it's because she's a Cowboy fan.
"As I got my purse and she got her stuff to leave, she threw something on the counter and said, 'Damn Dallas Cowboys fans.'"
She asked to speak with the General Manager who she claims didn't want to hear it.
Gail White, "She blew up at me. 'What the hell is your attitude problem? What the hell is wrong with you? What's going on here? Damn Dallas fans.'"
Diana Acosta, "And my friend, she doesn't cry and she was in tears when we walked out of that place, she was so upset."
When we went to talk with the General Manager she told a much different story claiming that White came into the bar on a mission to start trouble.
A written statement says in part:
"The events that transpired in our establishment today had absolutely nothing to do with being a Cowboy's fan or any other fan. The accusations made today by these women are absolutely inaccurate."
The bar now advertising, on their Facebook page that anyone who comes in wearing Cowboy's gear, will get their first beer for free, for the rest of the night.
