A Boston clothing store owner and supporter of President Donald Trump is facing legal problems because he allegedly discriminated against non-white customers.

According to WHDH, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey filed a complaint on Wednesday against Hicham Ali Hassan, owner of high-end clothing story The Tannery.

The lawsuit alleges that Hassan violated Massachusetts’ Public Accommodations Law and Consumer Protection Act “by denying service to an African-American man and a Middle Eastern woman shopping in the store,” WHDH said.

In one December 2017 incident, a black man tried to enter the store 20 minutes before closing but Hassan prevented him.

“What’s up brother man?” Hassan was quoting as saying.

The complaint claims that Hassan told the defendant that “he did not want [his] kind in [the] store” and implied that the man was too poor to shop there.

Hassan is also accused of discriminating against a Middle Eastern woman in March 2017. The woman sought help buying a pair of boots, but Hassan refused, the complaint says.

“I love Trump! I am glad he is going to get rid of all the immigrants,” Hassan is said to have told her.

As the woman was leaving the store, the owner allegedly shouted that he didn’t “trust [her] people.”

Investigators with the state said they have reason to believe that there is a pattern of systemic discrimination at Hassan’s store. They have asked any one with knowledge of discrimination to report it to the attorney general’s Civil Rights Division.
