Australian Man Kicked Out of a Bar Because of His Mullet

New, 2 comments

An Australian man says he got kicked out of the Print Hall rooftop bar in Perth because he has a mullet. Talking to The West Australian, David Hoogland said, "I'm not in a gang, I don't have tattoos all over me, I'm just an everyday person." No, he has just proudly worn a mullet for the past ten years. Hoogland had been at the bar for half an hour before he was asked to leave "because of his hair." The bar has as yet declined to comment on the matter.

According to one mullet-bearer, in Australia "some venues [believe] people with mullets or rat's tails were more likely to become drunk and rowdy on a night out." Australians, do share your mullet-y thoughts in the comments below. Also, if you happen to live in Perth and sport one of these fine hair cuts, The West Australian is holding a contest for Perth's best mullet. In honor of Hoogland, naturally.
