Watch: Filter drummer denied entrance to Brother’s Bar in Denver because of neck tattoo

Filter has posted a video on Facebook of the band’s drummer Jeff Fabb being denied entrance to Denver’s Brother’s Bar & Grill because of his neck tattoo.

The cell phone video shows Fabb walking up to the restaurant and the man at the door turning him away because of the tattoo.

The band posted the video on Oct. 9 after a show at Summit Music Hall near Brother’s Bar.

“This really just happened!! Boycott ‘the brothers’ bar and restaurant!! In Denver..,” the post reads.

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.

As of 10 a.m. on Oct. 11, the post has 2,327 likes, 2,310 shares and more than 800 comments.

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.”

    Well. So what was the tattoo? Can’t tell from the video. Regardless, the Filter guy’s language was pretty classy.

    What does the tat represent ? I don’t see anything objectionable. Silly rule especially since they had already served him twice.

    They can deny access to whomever they want, it is their business. The beauty of America, is the fact you can open your own establishment if you would like to.
