Disabled Teen Kicked Out Of Theater For Laughing Too Loudly

`The mother of a disabled teen complained to the American Civil Liberties Union after she and her son were kicked out of a movie theater because he was laughing too loudly.

Susan Brown said she and her 19-year-old son, Matt, were asked to leave an AMC Woodlands 20 theater during a showing of “The Pink Panther” Sunday. An AMC spokeswoman said several patrons complained about the teen’s outbursts. [..]

“Here’s a child that was laughing at a comedy,” she said. “His way of expressing delight and joy at this movie was laughing, but because his communication technique got in the way of someone else’s space, he had to leave.”‘
