DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas bar accused of turning away black customers has agreed to pay a small fine and apologize over enforcement of its dress code.

Kung Fu Saloon will pay two fees of $400 and issue letters to a person who said he was told he wasn’t properly dressed for the bar. DeAndre Upshaw accused the bar of selectively excluding black patrons with its code.

Upshaw launched a social media campaign against Kung Fu Saloon, which also has locations in Houston and Austin. Upshaw also complained to the city, which outlaws enforcing a dress code without posting it outside the entrance.

Kung Fu said in a statement to The Dallas Morning News that it wanted to move forward and focus on “providing a welcoming entertainment experience to the community.”
