Even the island paradise of Hawaii isn’t immune from anti-Donald Trump hatred.
Honolulu’s Café 8 is being slammed on Yelp after banning Trump supporters from the popular mom-and-pop eatery.
The cafe’s owners fueled the controversy by posting a sign on its front door that read: “If you voted for Trump you cannot eat here! No Nazis.”
Some people applauded Café 8 for opposing Trump. One Facebook fan wrote: “The next time you’re in Honolulu, eat lunch here. Not only are they on the right side of things, the food is delicious and reasonable.”
But others were furious. “It’s childish and very unprofessional,” Honolulu resident and Trump supporter Susan Roberts told Fox News. “The restaurant owner doesn’t have to worry. I will not be stepping foot in that establishment.”
Trump supporters exacted their revenge on Yelp, barraging Café 8 with one-star reviews and slamming its political “bigotry.”
The negative reviews piled up so quickly that Yelp’s PC police posted a pop-up message on Cafe 8’s review page, warning that politically motivated reviews will be deleted.
Café 8 is owned by Robert Warner and his wife Jali Warner. Jali is baffled by the hoopla over her anti-Trump sign and insists the restaurant doesn’t ask customers if they voted for Trump.
“Robert just wants to express how much he doesn’t like Trump,” Jali told Fox News. “If people take it personally or it hurts them, we cannot help. That’s why we say they have a choice if they want to come or not.”
Café 8 joins a growing chorus of businesses and people who are openly discriminating against Trump supporters.
Two weeks ago, a propane dealer in Maine said he will not deliver gas to anyone who voted for Trump. Michael Turner called the president-elect “despicable,” and said he doesn’t want business from people who voted for him. Amazingly, it turns out that Turner is not even licensed to sell propane in Maine!
This week, a Black Lives Matter supporter bragged that he refused to help a woman stranded during a snowstorm because she had a Trump sticker on her car.
Troy Brown laughed on Facebook: “I was going to help her but she has a Trump sticker on her car 😂😂😂 #CallYoPresident
