“Jesus is associated with religion and insults people,” a security guard tells the man in a clip, adding that “people have been insulted.”

The guard then tells the man to remove his shirt or leave the mall.

“But I didn’t say anything,” the man replies. “I didn’t say anything… I didn’t say anything. I just went to Macy’s.”

The attendant adds, “Again…I’ll give you a couple of options: Take off your shirt and you can go to Macy’s and do your shopping — or you can exit the mall, okay? Those are your only options right now.”

A second cut in the same clip shows the security guard getting angry as he tells the man sharply, “If you’re going to shop here, you have to take your shirt off!”

The man asks what’s wrong with the shirt, and the guard replies, his voice still raised, that “it’s a religious advertisement; No advertising is allowed on the property of the mall, which is private property!”

The warden adds, “We’ve had guests who said they were offended by your shirt…take the shirt off and you can go shopping!”

Here’s another clip that ends with the man in the Jesus saves shirt punching another guard, and the man in the shirt and the guards split up. It’s not clear if the man left the mall or not:

Alpha News said the mall prohibits “inappropriate clothing,” including clothing that contains “obscene language, obscene gestures, or racial/religious/ethnic slurs that are likely to cause disruption.” The outlet added that the mall also prohibits “picketing, demonstrations, solicitations, protests or petitions.”

Alpha News also reported that some online commentators suggested the man would eventually be allowed to stay in the mall with his shirt on, but the outlet added that Mall of America would not provide Alpha News with any context or explanation regarding the incident. In fact, the outlet said the mall has not responded to multiple calls and emails asking for comment over the past week.

Now a group called the Bloomington Patriots to demonstrate plans at the mall on Feb. 4 and asks attendees to wear “Jesus shirts,” Alpha News said.

Coincidentally, the outlet added that the Mall of America provided and promoted a drag show for “all ages” in its “iconic rotunda” about a year ago.
