Fabb was denied entrance on his own then the band returned to film a second attempt to get into Brothers, according to the Facebook post.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Brothers Bar posted the following response on its Facebook page, but has since deleted it:
“We are NOT against tattoos. We are NOT against visible tattoos. Our employees have and display tattoos. Our guests have and display tattoos. That has always been the case. What the tattoo represents or symbolizes and where the tattoo is located is a criteria to entering our location.”
