Tourette’s syndrome is involuntary movements and vocalizations (tics) caused by a neurological disorder. Louis Bunn 23 was told to leave Leo Leisure Bingo in Eastbourne during a bingo session after his tics began to flare up.

Louis stated that an employee “was very profane” which happened to make his tics worse. He explained to the staff member that he could not help it and felt he “was the person being discriminated against.”

The owner of Bingo hall Peter Brown explains that his disability was not the reason he was asked to leave and banned from playing there again.

According to Brown he stated:

‘I am aware of his condition and have never had a problem with it in any way,’ he added.

‘But we’d had a complaint the week before that he had jumped out of his seat and got very aggressive towards an old lady.

‘He was aggressive to me, my female members of staff and I was sworn and spat at. I’ve never been spoken to like that.’

Bunn who feels discriminated against took it a step further by telling his side of the story in YouTube video. In his video he explains the disease and how unfair he feels he was treated for something he has no control over.
