“Rolling Stones fan accuses the band of discriminating against disabled people”

“A Rolling Stones fan has filed a complaint against the band for discriminating against disabled people,” arguing in a complaint to the New York City Department of Human Rights that although wheelchair-accessible seats are made available at various parts of MetLife stadium at different price points, the less expensive ones sold out right away, which left him with a choice only of pricey areas. And this part hurts: plaintiff Michael Boyajian, “a retired administrative law judge, argued that the Rolling Stones should be more mindful of the discrepancy, given all the band members are in their 70s.” [Rozina Sabur and Daniel Bates, Telegraph (U.K.)]

  • Why would NYC be involved? MetLife Stadium is in New Jersey…

  • Shouldn’t the complaint be against MetLife stadium, since it is responsible for the seating configuration and availability of wheelchair accessible seats?

  • In their 70s? Why, Keith doesn’t look a day over dead.

    Reminds me of a complaint (not legal) from a friend of mine over a Bon Jovi concert and the lack of ladies rooms. It was something on the order of “Doesn’t he know that all those teeny-boppers from the 80s are now 50 year-old women with three kids who have been drinking wine for the past three hours?

  • “the less expensive ones sold out right away, which left him with a choice only of pricey areas.”
    Same happens for the able bodied as well.
