We Live in a World Where a Guy Famous on the Internet for a Homemade Tron Outfit Can’t Go See Tron in His Tron Outfit

Freshman year of high school, this kid told everyone he was going to come to school dressed up as Darth Maul on opening night of Phantom Menace. Fearing for his personal safety and the prospects of his genetic lineage, we tried to talk him out of it. He did it anyway. It was kind of badass. So: If Jay Maynard, a guy who has achieved Internet fame for a homemade Tron outfit, wants to go see Tron in his outfit, how dare his local movie theater turn him away? But it's happened, and TMZ has the scoop. Maynard's theory as to why the movie theater turned him away? The outfit was just "too distracting." Damn you, America. [TMZ]
