Remember Cafe 8 ½? They’re just the latest restaurant who thought it would be a great idea to alienate half their customers and refuse to support Trump supporters, or as they called them, “Nazis.”
Café 8 ½ is an Italian restaurant in Honolulu, and posted a sign this week on its front door reading “If you voted for Trump you cannot eat here! No Nazis.”
The market quickly spoke, and it wasn’t happy. As the Young Cons reported:
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.”
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.”
This isn’t the first time a dining establishment has decided to publicize its politics. Earlier this year an Iowa nightclub charged Trump supporters a higher entrance fee than Hillary Clinton supporters. In March, a steakhouse owner in Louisville received death threats so extreme after banning Trump from his restaurant that he was forced to lift the ban.
Cafe 8 1/2 has thrown in the towel, and the sign has been removed, according to Eater.com.
