English Defence League’s (EDL) Tommy Robinson and his friend were allegedly refused by one of the staff member of Selfridges. EDL is a far-right street protest movement which opposes what it considers to be a spread of Islamism in United Kingdom and are described as Islamophobic.
The staff member allegedly did this as protest for EDL’s aggressive activities in UK, and refused to serve both Tommy Robinson as well as his friend who was accompanying him. The video was recorded by Tommy Robinson himself.
Selfridges released an apology later on to Tommy Robinson, where they stated, “We pride ourselves on making everyone welcome and endeavor to provide world-class customer service at all times.” The Selfridges menswear assistant has been suspended while an investigation takes place.
