A restaurant in Richmond, Virginia, cancelled a customer reservation because they did not agree with their own personal beliefs and views. This has been a debate for many cases as business owners can refuse service to just anyone.
Similarly, a bakery in Colorado, Masterpiece Cakeshop, refused to provide service to a gay couple. The Supreme Court sided with the Masterpiece Cakeshop in its decision. We see many cases like this arise every day and it is important to remember that business owners have the right to refuse service to anyone, but not based on certain protected classes such as race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation.
