A University of South Florida student said Disney officials told him he didn't fit the "Disney look" when he applied for a job.

Sukhbir Singh Channa, 24, who is Sikh, applied for a job at Disney in September 2006. According to a news release by the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund (SALDEF), he was told he could not get the job there unless he removed his turban.
