CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati restaurateur Jeff Ruby has been banned from a local bagel shop.

Ruby banned O.J. Simpson from his restaurants after he was acquitted in the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson. More recently, Ruby has banned Casey Anthony, who was acquitted of murder her daughter, Caylee. Ruby has also banned Larry Flynt for offering Anthony $500,000 to pose in Hustler.

The owner of Marx Hot Bagels now says he wants to ban Ruby.

"Actually, I've grown tired of reading about him banning various people," Marx, aka The Bagel Man, said. "In this day and age I like to promote love and peace – and everyone is welcome to my bagel shop."

Everyone except Ruby.

"It actually gets tiresome," Marx said, "and maybe this will put a stop to it."

Marx said he has seen Ruby from time to time at his Kenwood Rood restaurant, but he's not a regular.
