A gay Florida Atlantic University (FAU) student claims he was turned away from the campus library on Wednesday for looking like a woman.
Senior Abdul Asquith said he was trying to check out a laptop to study for his communications classes but his request was refused by a FAU campus librarian.
“She looked at the ID and looked down at it. She said, ‘You sound, look and act like a girl and in this ID is a man, therefore I’m not giving you a laptop,’” said Asquith.
Asquith said he was wearing an FAU hoodie, shorts and had his long hair pulled back.
He says he finally was able to rent a laptop after going through three librarians. FAU has not issued an apology and would not return WPTV’s request for a comment as of this writing.
