4-year-old boy banned from Connecticut doughnut shop

MONROE, CT (WFSB) -

Kids say the darndest things, but one local inquisitive 4-year-old boy asked a question that got him banned from a Monroe doughnut shop.

"We were screamed at in front of the door, ‘he's not allowed in here, he's rude'," said Rebecca Denham as she described her experience at the Doughnut Inn on Tuesday morning.

Denham said her son, Justin Otero, asked a woman at the doughnut shop if she had a baby in her belly.

When the woman said ‘No' Otero apologized, and his mother said she was mortified.

"My response was ‘Oh my goodness, I'm so embarrassed, I'm so sorry'," Denham said.

While the woman said it was ‘no problem,' the managers at the Doughnut Inn were not as forgiving.

When Denham and her son walked in the shop Tuesday morning, they were allegedly told to leave.

"She said, 'he's not allowed in here,' and I looked around, and said, 'him?' and she said 'yeah, he's rude'," Denham said

She said she tried to explain what happened to her son and said he "sort of" understands, but he is still asking questions.

Eyewitness News tried to contact the manager and owner of the shop, who had no comment.

Denham said she and her son are planning to take their business elsewhere, while using this as a learning lesson for Justin.

"Some people, unfortunately are quick to pass judgment, and therefore we will take our money and business elsewhere," Denham added.

The owner of this Doughnut Inn in question owns at least two shops in Monroe, however he/she does not own the stores that are located in Fairfield and Stratford.
