The owner of the now controversial Red Hen in Virginia is facing some potential regrets after people spotted the sign that was allegedly hung in the window of the eatery. Not only is Stephanie Wilkinson facing quite the backlash and commentary from social media as she sees the Red Hen mentioned in the news, she’s now going to see some action for the sign that was hung up. This might not be very good advertising for her business as the sign points out quite a bit of hypocrisy after she touted her morals as one of the reasons for kicking out Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, and her family members.
The sign that was allegedly spotted in the window showed a quote from Martin Luther King and it was displayed on the news. The photograph below was taken from a Twitter account that goes by the name “Donna” and it shows the sign being displayed on Fox News. The sign was probably shown on other networks as well since it appears that many networks have covered this controversial story.
That sign alone is enough to spark the conversation about the hypocrisy that’s commonly found among those spouting the highest liberal morals.
Wilkinson had another message for Sarah Sanders, indirectly of course, when she was talking to the Washington Post. She said she would kick Sarah Sanders out of the restaurant again. Of course, that’s if the restaurant survives and remains open. It might be more difficult to get customers now that she’s personally seemed to alienate people over their political choices.
BPR stated: “White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and her three children were thrown out of Red Hen on June 23 because the restaurant’s liberal owner and staff despise President Trump.
Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of Red Hen, bragged about kicking a mom and her kids out of her restaurant and said she’d happily do it again.
“Absolutely, yes, I would have done the same thing again,” Wilkinson chirped to the Washington Post. “We just felt there are moments in time when people need to live their convictions. This appeared to be one.”
Wilkinson insisted she’s not confrontational and said she kicked Sanders and her children out to stand up for her moral beliefs.
“I’m not a huge fan of confrontation,” Wilkinson said. “I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.”
It’s unclear where Wilkinson’s morals were during the eight years of Barack Obama’s presidency, when his administration separated tens of thousands of children from their illegal-immigrant parents and beat and starved the kids while the media turned a blind eye.
President Trump fired back at the restaurant, tweeting: “The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders…If a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!”
