The chamber of commerce in the town of Gilmer, Texas, has mandated diversity training after a former member posted a message on her Facebook page against a Muslim woman who had visited the town.
Lisa Gaines posted a photograph of a Muslim woman at the town's "Yulefest" celebration and added the comment, "Look what showed up in Gilmer.
Gaines, who owns a business in Gilmer, was kicked out of the Gilmer Chamber of Commerce and they released a statement about the post after the Muslim woman was identified.
"The Gilmer Area Chamber of Commerce sincerely apologizes to Ruwan Alkam and her family for the behavior of a chamber member," the statement read.
Gaines also took down her personal page and her business page from Facebook over the controversy.
