Aussie Bloke Claims He Wasn't Let Into Several Pubs Because Of His Beautiful Mullet
While there are loads of people around the world who sport a mullet, it seems to be something that is very Australian.
There's something about the 'Business in the Front, Party in the Back' style that just screams Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi. The hairstyle permeates across our sun-blessed country and there's nothing wrong with that.
However, one Aussie bloke has realised that having a mullet can restrict you from entering places you might like. Jed Gadsby has told A Current Affair that he has been barred from walking into several Brisbane bars because he is rocking the specific hairstyle.
When asked what he thought of the decision to turn him away, the Queenslander certainly didn't mince his words.
"To turn someone away because of their haircut, it's pretty un-Australian I think," he told the Channel 9 programme. "Just thought it was pretty average, hey. I won't cut off my mullet just to go out and have a drink with my mates."
And nor bloody should he.
This isn't the first alleged case of mullet discrimination we've seen in Australia.

Lead singer of Aussie punk band, The Chats (who brought us the legendary song 'Smoko'), Eamon Sandwith, wrote a scathing message on Facebook, saying he was refused entry because of his glorious mullet.
"How does my haircut suggest I'm going to hit someone?" he asked on the social media site. "I've never even been in a fight. Prejudice starts with bullshit like this and leads to venues refusing entry to people for all sorts of stupid reasons.
"I understand that there are bad people with mullets who may give the mullet a bad name. I understand that security guards have a job to do. But by this logic, will [the bar] refuse entry to someone with dreadlocks under the impression they sell weed?
However, the bar in question defended their actions, saying it doesn't and would never have a no-mullet rule.
Writing on their Facebook page, the statement said: "Despite what some people have been saying of late, we do not have a 'no mullet' policy. We allow all hairstyles as long as the person is dressed accordingly to venue standards.
"What Eamon and The Chats have failed to explain is that he has been permitted entry into the venue multiple times, including several times over this past weekend.
"The only time Eamon has been asked to leave the venue was due to behaviour that goes against our venue guidelines. Overall though, we have never had a problem with Eamon."
Eamon has had plenty of time to mull-it over and work out if it was his hair or his behaviour that stopped his fun night out.
