Barber To Pay $80K To HIV Positive Customer After Refusing Haircut
In 2017, Nikko Briteramos was turned away from a Los Angeles barbershop
King of Kuts , despite getting his haircut several times before.
Things changed once a barber disclosed to the shop’s owner that the customer was HIV positive.
His next appointment a barber came out and told the customer not to come back because they have a celebrity clientele.
That decision cost the barbershop just over $80,000. Last week, a judge ruled that the barbershop will need to pay out $75,000 plus additional court fees to the customer who filed a lawsuit last year.
Because the barbershop never responded to the suit, the judge ruled in the customer’s favor.
