Doughnut shop bans boy for asking woman if she was pregnant

A curious 4-year-old boy was banned from a doughnut shop for asking a fellow customer a question — “Is there a baby in your belly?”

After the woman told young Justin Otero that she was not pregnant, the boy apologized and she reportedly said “Not a problem. I get it all the time with kids in nursery school,” WFSB reports.

But an apology was not enough for the shop’s manager, Rebecca Denham, Otero’s mother, said. The manager told her son he was no longer welcome at the establishment because he was “rude.”
