A coffee shop in Massachusetts has been forced to close because the owner’s daughter, who was the manager, posted some awful anti-police rhetoric on social media.
The Daily Mail reports:
‘I’ve lost my business’: Mother is forced to CLOSE her coffee shop after her daughter refused to host a ‘Coffee with a Cop’ evening there calling police ‘racist bullies’
The owner of a coffee shop has been forced to shut down her business following backlash over her daughter’s anti-police remarks on Facebook.
Kato Mele decided to shutter the White Rose Coffeehouse in Lynn, Massachusetts just a week after the controversy erupted, saying she made the decision ‘so I can stop being harassed’.
The uproar started when Mele’s 23-year-old daughter Sophie, who works as a manager at the coffeehouse, said on Facebook that the cafe would never host a ‘Coffee With A Cop’ event and went on to call police racists and bullies in the subsequent discussion thread.
Coffee With A Cop is a nationwide movement to build trust between police departments and the citizens they serve.
‘I will gladly host a “meet an ex-con” or “meet the impoverished minority community” event,’ Sophie wrote in comments that have since been deleted, but copies of which were obtained by DailyMail.com. ‘I’m not going to promote any pro-police event because I’m adamantly anti-police.’
She went on to call cops ‘bullies’ who uphold an ‘inherently violent, oppressive and unjust system’.
The backlash was so harsh, they shut down. Even in liberal Massachusetts, people are sick of the far left’s attacks on the police.
