A man who was wearing a t-shirt that read “Jesus Saves” was reportedly kicked out of the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota for his shirt being too offensive for others.
Footage of the incident went viral and shows security officers telling the man wearing the green “Jesus Saves” shirt that his shirt was “offending” other shoppers in the mall.
The security would continue to tell the man he either had to remove his shirt or leave the mall.
The back of the man’s shirt read “Jesus is the only way” and had the woke phrase and logo “coexist” crossed out.
In the video, the officers were quoted saying, “Jesus is associated with religion, and it’s offending people.”
The man would respond, “I didn’t speak… I didn’t say anything. I just went to Macy’s.”
Many users on Twitter were shocked this occurred in the United States:

What is happening in America? This man is being told he can’t wear a shirt that says “Jesus Saves” to shop in the mall. He should make them arrest him and then sue the mall for violating his Constitutional rights and a lot of money! https://t.co/ETWFd2ji1n— PatriotJewel (@Kingjewell8) January 16, 2023Advertisement
Many people were asking who exactly “complained” about a “Jesus Saves” shirt, with some noting that the Mall and its surrounding areas are heavily Muslim areas – being in Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district.
Bet they wouldn’t have said anything about an Allah Saves shirt.— Seth, Esq. (@libertarianJD) January 12, 2023
Or the BLM shirts— Ame (@princessAC401) January 14, 2023
Also, the same Mall that finds Jesus “offensive” hosted an “all ages drag show” last year in the rotunda, causing one to wonder how scantily dressed men in women’s lingerie gyrating in front of children is considered appropriate while a t-shirt with a simple Christian slogan is grounds for getting booted off the premises…
