There has long been a misconception over what "free speech" entitles you to.

A fair few people believe it means "what ever, where ever, when ever", without limits or restrictions.

Which is fine, and mostly true, in public owned places or when directed at Governments.

In private places, which includes publically accessible, the private owner is entitled to set limits, including denying you the ability to speak.
