Saggy Pants Folo

Posted: Updated:
Dunellen, New Jersey (MY9NJ) -

Bill Anderson continues to chase spots all over New Jersey that have put a ban on baggy pants.  This time he went to Dunellen, NJ to see a pizza shop that says pull up your pants or you'll get no service.  This follows Wildwood's saggy pants ban on the boardwalk and Penns Grove's proposed ban. 

Giulio's Pizza is a family run shop and they aren't afraid to say that this fashion trend is not welcome in their store.  As a private business, Giulio's has different rules, but Attorney Michael Coard still says saggy pants bans are a new form of discrimination.  Coard said its a movement to discourage young, blacks and others who embrace the hip-hop fashion. 

Giulio's says their motivation behind the ban is that they are just simply tired of looking at people's underwear while they eat and so far their customers love the sign and the ban. 

Bill took this story to his Facebook where he asked his followers about Giulio's ban and he got various responses.  Asa said “This Goes Beyond Hip Hop, This Is About Race & Race Only” Arlene disagreed and wrote, "It's simple enough to just pull the d*mn pants up. no defense for silliness. choose your battles wisely”

Back in the studio, the debate got heated as Chasers themselves chimed in on the ban and some of them are also tired of seeing people's underwear when they eat.
