100 thoughts on “Kicked Out Of Hotel Because Of My Service Dog

  1. UPDATE!
    Hey guys, first of all there has been an update to this situation (link in the description). I have a longer explanation with more details in that video and in the comment section if you're interested but I want you guys to know that at this point I consider the issue to be over. It's important to me that I keep you guys posted and let you know where I'm at, especially since I've made the decision to leave this video up. I don't think this ever would have reached a resolution without you guys…I also didn't realize how many of you guys had Yelp accounts…like, damn, you guys are savage. Please give your fingers a break. I don't want to have moved on and then have the hotel or comedy club be stuck with online repercussions from this for eternity. That being said, you guys helped give me a voice when I didn't have one and I'm so incredibly grateful for that. Love you all.

    ORIGINAL POST
    Hey guys. As always, thank you so much for watching the video. I know this was a long one and believe it or not it's the short version. We tried reaching out to the corporate Wyndham and the Wingate Wyndham Richmond Short Pump multiple times. I have always been upfront about what I said, and where I was wrong (which I was). I've never asked for money or any other compensation from them, I only wanted an apology to myself and the comedy club. It has become pretty clear that isn't going to happen. I'm still pretty upset, but mostly I feel helpless. Those of you who watch this vlog know that I work through my frustrations by telling jokes, and I hope you guys are able to laugh with me in this one. At this point I just want my side of the story to be heard. If you have ever dealt with something like this (service animal or not), I'd love to hear your story.

    For those of you in cities that might be affected by this, I'm really, truly sorry. This was not my decision at all. I love all of you, I want to be able to perform for and meet as many of you as I can. I will keep you guys updated.

  2. Why do so many people hate disabled people?! So many people has attacked my sister and tries to hurt her because she is disabled….. why won’t it stop?

  3. That's absolute fucking bullshit. I was trying to search dates you'd be in Columbus Ohio again bc I met you last year!! I'm sorry this douchebag did this. It makes me wanna go visit Titus and get kicked out for a REAL reason. Smh 🤦… If anyone can let me know next closest city you'll be in and I'll travel!!

  4. I just want to say hospitality is about making sure guests are COMFORTABLE and feel WELCOMED and this goes against ALL STANDARDS for hotels. No matter what the hotel's policy is, you have to LISTEN TO WHAT THE GUEST IS SAYING TO YOU. This makes me so mad. If you're heart isn't in hospitality anymore, GET A NEW JOB. UGH

  5. When it is not obvious what service an animal provides, only limited inquiries are allowed. Staff may ask two questions: (1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability, and (2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform. Staff cannot ask about the person’s disability, require medical documentation, require a special identification card or training documentation for the dog, or ask that the dog demonstrate its ability to perform the work or task.

  6. Christ, can't believe this guy is still doing this schtick. Funny, in candid moments this guy has no stutter. Praise dee lawrd! I'm healed! It's coming soon to your nearest theatre. Anyway, the dog looks drugged.

  7. I know this is really old but u could have taken them… every last one of them to court for not being ada compliment them… then take one of ur new hotels and make it a dog hotel and make the guy who kicked u out run it

  8. Keep doing what your doing and fight for your rights. You have an amazing service dog and your entitled to have him with you! You have my support!

  9. Sue that hotel chain and the comedy club. Find a lawyer that will take the case because they refuse to abide by the ADA.

  10. Service dog: Trained to attain to a specific need of a single person
    Therapy dog: Trained to attain emotional support
    Emotional support dog: Not as trained; support comes from its comforting presence

  11. I hope you sued this place. You were discriminated against! What they did to you cost you real money.
    Also Stella is a SWEETIE!

  12. I like the attitude of a business owner I know. He says "If I see a customer come in with a dog, I assume it is a service dog". People like Titus are the ones who go to dog owner websites looking to combat "fake " service dogs.

  13. So this is the second problem this guys had because of his "service dog". Obviously hes not putting the vest on the dog with the proper identification and paperwork. And no ALL real service dogs will have certification paperwork, thats why there is a clear slip in the vest

  14. I love your dog so much. I have PTSD and I had an emotional support animal, the cutest pit bull on the planet. He is no longer with me, except his ashes and paw print. I have not gotten another because I miss him so much. I have such anxiety leaving the house for almost anything but I am so heartbroken. I go to school online so that I can someday have a career in mental health and social justice, I’m sure it will involve leaving the house so I’m working on that. Your dog is so sweet. You are so blessed to have her. Seeing Stella comfort and calm you when you got heated just melted my heart and made me cry. I miss that so much. Because of my divorce from a man who makes a lot of money and my spousal support that provides for a much different lifestyle than I had for 15 years, I cannot afford another dog. I gave him pretty much everything in the divorce because it was so traumatic I just wanted it over and he told me he would get nasty if I fought him. My lawyer even had me take the stand to say that even with my mental disability I understood what I was doing and I said yes because I just wanted out of there and off that stand.

  15. You nees to speak with a lawyer. They are messing with how you live, spreading lies that will cost you wages you are trying to earn and also telling lies about your character and your service dog Stella causing stress on the both of you. It IS a legal thing. Take action! Agaisnt the manager and the comedy club(s).

  16. When my service dog Sophie got federal accreditation we were given a one 800 number for service dog concierge service and if I had minimum two weeks notice I could contact them and give them when and where I want to fly due to Sophie size she would get equivalent of two seats so that we she could have room on the floor for herself. Also the hotels would have the type of food we wanted the bottled water dishes and even a little doggy bed. All of these items were done for no charge. It’s in saying what people seem to think they can get away with by not knowing the laws and bylines of the ADA and federal government powers. Love hearing what’s coming through be blessed and I look forward to more of your youTube episodes.

  17. I feel that the hotel should suck mine cocken balls because they were trying to tell you to leave a close hotel because of Stella who did nothing to deserve that crap.

  18. Hey … stand up for yourself and your beautiful service dog. If your comedy club goes by one story "Only" they're stupid.

  19. A service dog for a stutter? Does the service.dog.help you talk without a stutter? Piss poor job if I may say so myself.

  20. Next time, make it WORTH IT AND PUNCH THE MOTHERFUCKER IN THE FACE! OR… CLAIM YOU ARE BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BECAUSE YOUR GAY! HAVE THE WHOLE LGBTQ RSTUVWXYZ ON THEIR ASS!!!

  21. As a Veteran n have severe PTSD I have a service dog n have run into the same thing at various places n even had police n security try to remove me …of course it didn't fly for several reasons n had the people around me stand up with me n for me ! So I can relate and you're right!! N these places need to learn the laws !!

  22. Dude I couldn't do what you did I would have told him to f##king pound sand and go totally PTSD on his ass. Dog is working get out of his space you f##king twat. You took the high road and that makes you a good man.keep up the good work see you on road be safe and God speed on your travels

  23. seeing stella lay her head on drews shoulder gave me happy bugs and now im on a mission to find my cat so i can be loved on too

  24. I am So sorry that the clerk was being ruded. I hope you you can straighten this out so you can continue working in the those cities you name. Titus seem to be ignorant to the law and good customer service. Good luck!😎❤

  25. I worked at the front desk of a hotel for a while, and it is literally no problem whatsoever to leave the keys in the room. Housekeeping just comes, picks them up while cleaning, then drops them off at the desk before check-in. I'm not even going to mention that Titus guy because we could all clearly see he was in the wrong, but the lady at the front desk shouldn't have been acting so agitated either. Sometimes it really sucks, but me and every other front desk employee ever has to go through training that tells you how to deal with aggressive customers. Drew wasn't even being aggressive, but you're supposed to remain calm, and NEVER GET ANNOYED AT THE CUSTOMER. You're just supposed to apologize, take the blame for it, and try to fix the problem, including apologizing for the actions of other employees if there was a confrontation. Lol I didn't mean to turn that into a rant but this was ridiculous.
