A man has claimed that he was thrown out of a bar for having a mullet.

David Hoogland alleged that he was asked to leave the rooftop bar in Print Hall in Perth, Western Australia, 30 minutes after arriving with his friends and partner.

Staff are said to have been displeased with his choice of hairstyle, and asked him to leave the premises.

"I'm just an everyday person," Hoogland told The West Australian.

"I agree if you're being rowdy, out of control, drunk or abusive then you should be kicked out but if you're just sitting down having a chat and a quiet social drink, I think that's pretty rude."

Hoogland added that he has had the haircut for over a decade, and it has not been an issue at bars before.

Print Hall management has so far declined to comment about the incident, but Australian law states that venues are allowed to enforce their own dress codes, which may result in people being refused entry. However, people cannot be discriminated over age, sex or religion.
