The Europe News website reports today (November 27, 2010) that a Muslim woman was banned from entering a roller-skating rink because her headscarf breached the "no hoods" rule.
Marisol Rodriguez-Colon, 40, was "mortified" when she turned up to the Ron-A-Roll rink in Vernon, Connecticut, only to be refused entry.
When she asked why, security staff referred her to the venue's rules which were posted at the entrance and read: "No Hats. No Headwear. No Exceptions."
Mrs. Colon left in disgust, missing the birthday party of her niece which was taking place inside.
