Haters, You Have the Wrong Red Hen: NJ Small Business Targeted After White House Press Secretary Ousted From VA Restaurant

Haters, You Have the Wrong Red Hen: NJ Small Business Targeted After White House Press Secretary Ousted From VA Restaurant

For example: When your family restaurant just happens to share the name of a suddenly-Internet-infamous establishment that turned away President Trump's press secretary Friday night.

The Virginia restaurant's co-owner said she asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave Friday night, after staff members, some of whom are gay, expressed concern about Sanders' defense of the president's desire to bar transgender people from the military.

"THE RED HEN IN SWEDESBORO, NEW JERSEY IS IN NO WAY AFFILIATED WITH THE RED HEN IN VIRGINIA" (in all caps) begins a post on the New Jersey restaurant's Facebook page.

The Swedesboro restaurant's Facebook reviews took a dive after the news broke, with multiple people posting 1-star reviews since Friday.

On Saturday night, only one such review could be found on The Red Hen's Yelp page, which read, "Can't believe with all the people in there the other night, you know the night they kicked out Sarah and family because she worked for the WH, and Yelp is deleting those reviews."
