Lantana's Old Key Lime House Faces Possible Boycott by Bikers

Bikers from across South Florida are threatening to boycott and protest a popular restaurant in Lantana. 

An American Legion rider says he was discriminated against for riding a motorcycle and wearing patches that proclaim his military service.  Robert Thompson says he was told by an employee at the Old Key Lime House to remove his leather vest because they don't allow quote "gangs or colors". 

The man says his patches are affiliated with his service in Iraq and one proclaims his affiliation with the American Legion. 

Word of the incident spread on Facebook and a page was created to boycott and protest the restaurant. 

The manager is apologizing, and suspended the employee who made the comments.
