Actor Laz Alonso was at a restaurant at LAX when he was refused service.

He, of course tweeted about thew whole incident.

He Tweeted: “I was just refused food at “On The Border” at terminal 4 at LAX because my divers license expired. But the airline & security let’s me fly?”

A friend replied: “DO NOT EAT @ ON THE BORDER PLEASE BOYCOTT !!!! THE EMPLOYEE ARE RACIST PLEASE RT…KEEP IT GOING !!!”

“It’s not funny folks,” Laz wrote. “Read between the lines.”

Ralph Shen, On The Border manager, said, “We check everybody’s ID when they order drinks, it is the California law.”

He added that ID isn;t required when a patron is just ordering food, what Laz claimed he was doing. Source and Source

I’ve never heard of a place denying someone food because of an expired license. If he wasn’t ordering drinks, then he should have been alerted when they asked for ID in the first place. Something in the milk ain’t clean here.
