Employees at Clubhouse Jager in the North Loop said Thursday will be their final night of work.
That decision follows reports the owner of the establishment made a donation to last year's Louisiana Senate campaign of David Duke, a former leader in the KKK.
"I do realize it is free speech and everybody has their opinions, but it just doesn't seem like that was fitting with this area," Jody Schepers said. "It was just kind of shocking for this particular set of blocks in particular."
KSTP spoke with regulars outside the popular bar who said they stopped by Thursday afternoon to see if the people who work there were doing OK following the controversy.
"I will not come back here unless there's a new owner," Schepers said.
KSTP went to the home of Julius DeRoma to get his perspective. He asked our crews to leave.
