However, Scott said it was not the first time his students, who were at the mall dressed in school uniform, were treated in such a manner.

“At Highpoint two weeks ago they asked to try out some self-propelled scooter and the guy told them, ‘No, you can’t, legally I can’t let you try it out’. They walked away and turned around and another kid was using it.”

A message from Apple spokesperson said, “We want every person who joins our team, every customer visiting our stores or calling for support to feel welcome.
