Texas billionaire Mark Cuban praised the restaurant owners who kicked press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders out of a restaurant for taking a moral stand, TMZ reported Monday.

In a tweet Saturday, Sanders wrote that she was told to leave the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, because she works for President Trump. TMZ stopped Cuban on the street and asked what he would’ve done in that situation.

“You can make an argument on both sides,” he said. “More power to [the owners] for sticking up for what they believe in. But on the flip side, you don’t want to extend that to minorities, LGTBQ…it’s hard to know where that fine line is.”

Trump lambasted the restaurant on Monday for being dirty, according to the Daily Beast.

“The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” he said. “I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!”
