The New York Yankees’ security forces, who earlier this summer banned sunscreen from the park (terrorist tool, you know), are at it again.
Fans in the stadium are not allowed the freedom to go to the bathroom while “God Bless America” is played in the 7th inning, according to Gothamist.
Donna Lieberman, Executive Director of the NYCLU, tells CBS 2 that “because they are enforcing a rule of that imposes political correctness through refusing to let somebody go to bathroom while a patriotic song is playing, that violates Constitutional rights.” But Michael C. Dorf, a constitutional law professor at Columbia Law School, disagrees; he told the Times last year that “it doesn’t violate the Constitution, because the Yankees are not the government. If they were a municipally owned team, you could have an issue because the team would be a state actor.
Since when do New Yorkers need a bathroom?
