    Lorne Grabher has had his last name on his license plate for decades, but a few months ago received a letter from the Nova Scotia Registry of Motor Vehicles has canceled the plate after 25 years, CBC reported.

    That’s because others “can misinterpret it as a socially unacceptable slogan.”

    Grabher is now calling out Nova Scotia officials for discrimination.

    The Department of Transportation told the CBC via email that they received a complaint over the plate “as misogynistic and promoting violence against woman” and that they cannot mark that it is a name vs. an action.

    Nova Scotia has made about 3,100 words not acceptable for license plates including HESHE and GOD4U2.
