Eddie Bryant, a disabled Purple Heart veteran, enjoys skydiving.
But recently he was asked to leave a local skydiving business because of a tatoo.
BizPac Review reported:

Eddie Bryant, a disabled combat veteran who served in Iraq was asked to leave a skydiving site in Lake Wales, Florida because he refused to cover a tattoo that offended Muslim soldiers from Qatar.

According to the vet’s blog — Adventures of a Broken Soldier — he is an avid skydiver with almost 300 jumps under his belt and was at Skydive Lake Wales on Wednesday, where soldiers from the country of Qatar were also being trained.

Bryant has a tattoo on the back of his right calf of the Arabic word for “Kafir.”

As he explains on his blog:

“Kafir (Arabic: كافر‎ kāfir, plural كفّار kuffār) is an Arabic term used in an Islamic doctrinal sense, usually translated as “unbeliever,” “disbeliever,” or “infidel.” The term refers to a person who rejects God or who hides, denies, or covers the “truth.”

Because of his tatoo, Eddie Bryant was asked to leave a skydiving site in Florida.
His tatoo was too offensive.
