Six Flags Sorry For Shirt Ban
TRENTON, N.J. — A former Marine who wasn’t allowed into an amusement park because he was wearing a shirt with a red, white and blue rifle pictured on it has been given an apology.
Mario Alejandro, who served four years in the U.S. Marine Corps, received a phone call from Six Flags Great Adventure President John Fitzgerald on Saturday apologizing, and he accepted,
Alejandro, a 33-year-old father of three from Woodbridge, New Jersey, said he went to the park with his family on Aug. 9 wearing the shirt, which was a Father’s Day gift and was bought from a nonprofit that supports Marines. He said a security guard told him the shirt, which included the phrase “Keep calm and return fire,” was offensive and he had to change it or cover it if he wanted to go into the park, located in Jackson.
