Cancer Survivor Asked to “Cover Up His Face or Leave” at Convenient Store
WALTERBORO, SC (WTAT-TV) – Skin cancer survivor Kirby Evans, faced an ill-favored side of discrimination on Tuesday, October 9th after stopping for donuts and a drink at a Forks Pit Stop store in Walterboro. Evans was left disfigured seven years ago after battling cancer, losing his nose and one of his eyes. He was painfully reminded when he says the manager told him to ‘cover his face or leave.’
Evans cannot wear an eye patch due to the sensitivity of his skin.
“When she told me I had to cover my face so I could eat in her store, that hurt me down to my core…” Evans remarked.
