The bar staff complained about alleged sexual assaults by asylum seekers similar to those during New Year's Eve at Germany's Cologne Central Station. As the police had done nothing to prevent such attacks in the future, the bar decided to introduce a two euro entrance fee on weekends as well as ban asylum seekers from entry.
The move has caused outrage among many Internet users who claimed that such measures reminded them of the Nazi regime. Moreover, people accused the bar owners of using the Cologne attacks as an excuse to earn more money.
Open racism or stupidity?
Maybe also "free of gays" or "free of Jews"? Sorry, but this is just mean and vile.
On December 31, numerous women in Cologne were robbed, threatened and sexually assaulted by small groups of aggressive men, allegedly of Arab and North African origin.
The German police registered a total of 561 complaints so far. Following the attacks, German authorities announced plans to ease deportation procedures for migrants who have committed crimes.
