Kid Banned From Doughnut Shop After Asking Stranger If She Is Expecting

Odd News

Why is the sky blue? Are we there yet? 

Kids like to ask questions. But childlike inquisition can apparently get you banned from a doughnut shop. 

A mom claims she and her 4-year-old son were kicked out of the Doughnut Inn in Monroe, Conn., because he asked another customer if she was eating for two

"I asked her if she was pregnant," said the boy, Justin Otero.

The answer was "no," Justin apologized, and the customer took no offense. But the next time Rebecca Denham and Justin walked in, a manager promptly said their business was no longer welcome. 

"She said he's not allowed in here," Denham said. "I said why ... and she said he's rude."

A Facebook page that represented itself as Doughnut Inn of Monroe defended its decision and countered the story as fabricated. According to local media, the page has since been taken down and the manager said she never posted anything. 

Dunham admits Justin has caused some commotions in the shop before but that there has been no warning or escalation. She believes innocent curiosity does not equal a ban.
