A Canadian man will have to come up with a new vanity license plate, or decide to go with the standard tag, after he was told his plate could be misinterpreted.
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.
