This is an attitude or behaviour whereby people with a disability are, or have been discriminated against on the basis of their disability
A person in a wheelchair is asked to leave a cafe as the staff feel the wheelchair user is blocking the way for other customers or that they are a hazard for evacuation of the cafe in the event of a fire, or other such emergency. This action against the disabled person could be described as disabilism.
