REXBURG- After almost two years since the Testing Center at Brigham Young University- Idaho shocked the world by refusing service to a student wearing skinny jeans, the Testing Center again takes the national spotlight for barring patrons.

This Thursday at 4:30 p.m. an Ewok tried taking a test at the BYU-I testing center. Though he was a registered university student, he was not permitted to enter the testing facility. Apparently the problem was that the Ewok was not wearing pants. 

A spokesperson for the Testing Center said, “We don’t discriminate on account of race, religion, gender, height, weight, IQ, fashion sense, or physical prowess, but we do have to draw the line somewhere. Skinny jeans are one thing. No jeans is another.”

Though University representatives continue to reaffirm their No-Discrimination policy, some are still skeptical.

“I think it’s ridiculous,” said Child Development Student Samantha Gibson, “Anybody should be allowed to take a test, human or otherwise, pants or not. It’s time we start accepting people for who they are and not what they look like on the outside.”

The Ewok’s only comment was, “Yub nub.”
