Lincoln Center turns away woman wearing anti-Trump sign

New York:

Jenny Heinz, a longtime Metropolitan Opera and New York Philharmonic subscriber was barred from attending an event at Lincoln Center  when she refused to remove an anti-Trump sign affixed to the back of her jacket which read, “NO! In the name of humanity we refuse to accept a fascist America.”

She told The New York Times that it happened this month at David Geffen Hall when she went to see the Budapest Festival Orchestra.

She said she's been wearing it ever since she attended a protest outside Trump Tower in November.

"At what point does one draw the line?" Heinz, 72, said.

"We're talking about freedom of expression." Lincoln Center officials refunded Heinz's ticket, though they declined to discuss the incident with the Times.

Heinz said the center's vice president for concert halls and operations told her during a meeting with her lawyer that signs were not allowed inside the performance halls or on the plaza.
