A man who was wearing a t-shirt that read “Jesus Saves” was reportedly kicked out of the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota for his shirt being too offensive for others.
Footage of the incident went viral and shows security officers telling the man wearing the green “Jesus Saves” shirt that his shirt was “offending” other shoppers in the mall.
The security would continue to tell the man he either had to remove his shirt or leave the mall.

The back of the man’s shirt read “Jesus is the only way” and had the word “coexist” crossed out.
According to Blaze, the video first emerged on Facebook on January 7th and has been making its way around the web ever since.
In the video, the officers were quoted saying, “Jesus is associated with religion, and it’s offending people.”
The man would respond, “I didn’t speak… I didn’t say anything. I just went to Macy’s.”
Many users on Twitter were shocked this occurred in the United States:
This man was stopped by Mall cops for wearing a Jesus Saves t shirt.

What is happening in America? This man is being told he can’t wear a shirt that says “Jesus Saves” to shop in the mall. He should make them arrest him and then sue the mall for violating his Constitutional rights and a lot of money! https://t.co/ETWFd2ji1n

If wearing a Jesus t-shirt in the mall is prohibited, then America has officially fallen.
