TAYLOR (WXYZ) -
For many people, the sign "NO COLORS ALLOWED" posted outside of Beer Belly's Bar & Grill is not confusing, but one man took it to mean that blacks were not allowed inside and he's now caused a frenzy on Facebook.
The man posted a 40 second video showing the outside of the bar and saying, "Look at that there, no colored people allowed."
But he's got it all wrong.
The owner and employees of Beer Belly's Bar & Grill say the sign, that has been posted for three years, is strictly about biker colors and keeping biker gangs from causing problems with other biker gangs.
Unfortunately, the bar is getting everything from phone calls questioning them about their sign to threats.
