NJ.com reports Mario Alejandro received a phone call from Six Flags Great Adventure President John Fitzgerald on Saturday apologizing and he accepted. A spokeswoman for the park says it didn’t realize Alejandro’s shirt was related to a military charity.

Alejandro says he went to the park with his family on Aug. 9 wearing the shirt, which was a Father’s Day gift and was bought from a nonprofit that supports Marines. The shirt included the phrase “Keep calm and return fire.”

Alejandro says a security guard told him the shirt was offensive and he had to change.
