Joss Stone has voiced her approval for a store in Austria that bans anyone who is “racist, sexist, homophobic or an asshole”.

The singer, who is currently on tour across Europe, posted the picture of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, a clothing store in Vienna, Austria.

A sign in the store’s window states: “if you are racist, sexist, homophobic or an asshole, don’t come in”.

Sharing the sign on Facebook, the singer added: “Fair enough”.

Last week, the US Ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe married his same-sex partner in a ceremony in Vienna.

In June, Austria’s first openly gay MEP has been attacked with acid during Vienna’s pride parade.

Ulrike Lunacek, who is the head of the Austrian Greens in the European Parliament, was sprayed with acid while giving an interview at the Rainbow Parade.

No charges were brought against the man, as miraculously no-one was harmed in the attack.
