Man shocked after Filipino girlfriend refused entry into Krispy Kreme

via nzherald.co.nz – A Filipino woman was refused entry into a doughnut shop because she wasn’t a New Zealand resident.

Hamilton man Christopher Smith and his partner left the city early to get to Auckland in time for the opening of the country’s first Krispy Kreme outlet, it’s been reported.

The Philippine Embassy in New Zealand is also fuming, likening the company’s stance to that of the Klu Klux Klan.

After arriving about 2.30am, the Hamilton couple were shocked to be told by a security guard the woman couldn’t get in because she wasn’t a Kiwi.

Smith told media the security guard told him “she has to go, she has to go”.

The woman had to sit in the car and wait while her partner waited in the 75-strong queue for nearly six hours.
