The owner of Bishop Tavern and Lounge in Tampa, Fla., apologized Friday to a transgender woman who was discriminated against last week. The owner said, "Our staff, in my opinion, didn't do anything with the intent to harm somebody. I don't think the bouncer's statement came from a place that was meant to be harmful. I think it came from a place of being misinformed."
