A Minneapolis bar shut down after performers canceled, customers vowed to boycott it and employees were repulsed to learn the owner donated $500 to former KKK leader David Duke's 2016 Senate campaign.

Caught between those who were outraged over the donation and white supremacists who thought they could claim the bar as their own were more than a dozen employees who became collateral damage in the fallout.

Former employees, who asked not to be identified, confirmed Friday that Club Jäger was closed and the 17 employees at the North Loop bar were out of jobs. Employees were incensed when they learned about the owner's donation to Duke, and the decision to close the business was made by those who ran it, not the owner, they said.

Club Jäger's owner, Julius DeRoma, couldn't be reached for comment on Friday. The backlash erupted this week after City Pages published a story about DeRoma's political donation to Duke's failed bid for the U.S. Senate seat in Louisiana.

Soon after, DJ Jake Rudh announced on Facebook that he would no longer host Transmission, his long-standing weekly dance night, at Club Jäger, saying he didn't want to be in a "venue where the owner supports the likes of David Duke and his messages of hate."

The 90s Preservation Society followed with their own Facebook post to say they were canceling their standing Thursday gig at the bar for the same reason.

Rob Callahan, a Twin Cities writer who has hosted a trivia night at Club Jäger since 2008, said he was furious when he learned about DeRoma's link to Duke and canceled his Tuesday trivia night.

A few employees immediately walked off the job when they learned about DeRoma's donation. Others stayed because they had families to feed, Callahan said.

As news circulated on Tuesday and social media erupted, employee inboxes filled up with notes from friends who wanted to know what was going on and angry messages from others who accused employees of being Nazi sympathizers and apologists, Callahan said. A group of men followed one employee on the street, calling her a Nazi lover and then spit on her, he said.

The liberals have lost it. Who cares about the so called kkk which doesn't even exist anymore. Yet liberals support the Muslims which are the biggest death cult of all time.

Someone who had a grudge against Julius found the donation and blew it out of proportion, and a few self-righteous boobs are now cutting off their nose to spite their face by quiting their job.
Club Jager is the epitome of what a neighborhood bar should be. Beautiful, old, friendly service and patrons, great food, booze and reasonable prices. I hope they re-open in time for my high school reunion.(I don't know why anyone could possibly support Duke, and I don't care!)

To walk off a job without knowing where your next pay check is coming from is a lot to expect.

Not everyone can simply walk away with no income. Maybe a better position would that ALL employees who oppose the owners support of the KKK would wear a T-shirt with their displeasure while working there with the understanding the owner would liquidate the place and the new owners would not support the KKK.

Allow the poor working stiffs some cushion to avoid personal financial hardships.

However in 2017 there is no common sense applied to any situation. It's knee jerk reaction and who cares about colladarral damage.

The owner is gay (hence, unlikely a Klan supporter) but that doesn't make it a gay bar. It's a nice neighborhood watering hole. These precious, misguided snowflakes need to be quickly replaced so the bar can re-open.

How about the big rainbow flag behind the bar? They showed interior pictures of the place on the internet. Does that make it a gay bar?

Simple answer: No. It just means gays are welcome. It's not an exclusively gay pick-up bar like the Gay 90s. They don't play disco music and dress like fruitcakes.

What other gay bars do you hang out in? Now that that one is closed. If I'm sitting in a bar getting drunk with a giant rainbow flag in front of my face, I say it's a gay bar. Are gays not welcome in every bar? Are there bars that have a heterosexual only sign on the door? A big flag is needed?

The gay 90s. I used to bartend at a place called The Cabooze. I lived in Bloomington at the time, but I would sometime drive down Hennepin Ave to look at the freaks on a hot summer night. I see men in the 90s parking lot bent over cars with their bare asses showing.
