Trump supporters are bombarding the wrong Red Hen restaurant with threats and abuse

Published

A New Jersey restaurant named The Red Hen is being bombarded with threats and abuse by Trump supporters who are confusing it with the Virginia restaurant of the same name that refused to serve White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

NJ.com reports that the Red Hen, based in the New Jersey town of Swedesboro, has been getting nonstop angry phone calls from Trump supporters ever since Sanders on Saturday revealed that the Virginia-based restaurant also called the Red Hen had asked her to leave because it disagreed with her politics.

“It was off the chart,” restaurant manager Elizabeth Pope told NJ.com. “Then the hostess comes to me and says, ‘people are calling and yelling and swearing.'”

What’s even more disturbing, said Pope, is that Trump-backing internet trolls have crushed her restaurant’s ratings since the start of the weekend — and have single-handedly dropped it by a full star on Yelp.

To counteract the Trump fans’ misguided rage, the Red Hen sent out an official statement on its Facebook page explaining that it was not the same restaurant that booted Sanders.

“THE RED HEN IN SWEDESBORO, NEW JERSEY IS IN NO WAY AFFILIATED WITH THE RED HEN IN VIRGINIA,” the restaurant wrote. “We are an independent, family owned business who happens to share the same name. Kindly check your facts before you erroneously defame an innocent business on Facebook in an attempt to destroy their business where they welcome all, irrespective of their race, religion, views or opinions.”
