4-year-old Justin Otero banned from doughnut shop for asking woman if she's pregnant

MONROE, CT - A young boy in Monroe, Connecticut was banned from his favorite doughnut shop because of a question he asked.

Four-year-old Justin Otero is a curious guy. But his curiosity got him in some hot water at the Doughnut Inn.

There was a customer there and he asked her if she had a baby in her belly. She said no and he said I'm sorry.

"It looked like she was pregnant and I asked her if she was pregnant," said Justin.

Justin's mom Rebecca Denham was mortified.

"My response was 'oh my goodness, I'm so embarrassed, I'm so sorry.'"

But they say thankfully, the woman shrugged it off. She said no problem and told them she gets it all the time with the kids at nursery school.

But the managers at Doughnut Inn weren't as forgiving, because when Rebecca and Justin walked in Wednesday morning, the longtime daily customers 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.'"

After Rebecca explained this to Justin, and she says he gets it, sort of but true to form, he's still asking questions.

Somebody got mad because, he's really not very nice.

The manager and owner at Doughnut Inn had no comment. Now, the mother and son are planning to take their business elsewhere while using this as a learning lesson for the four year old.

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