The days of social justice warriors being able to destroy a business for doing something "politically incorrect" are finally coming to an end.
An Italian restaurant reportedly saw a huge boost in sales and received a massive "outpouring of support" after epically trolling Black Lives Matter with a billboard reading "Black Olives Matter."
From The Washington Post:
An Italian restaurant in New Mexico has come under fire for a punny billboard playing off the Black Lives Matter slogan amid nationwide outcry over the recent fatal shootings of black men by police officers.Sadly, they took the photo down, probably out of fear. Nonetheless the owner didn't apologize (more on that below).
The Post quoted some of the funny comments they got from triggliots:
"What is happening in America saddens so many, even all the way in the southern hemisphere," one wrote. "I love a good joke, but there are things that you just don't joke about."
Another added: "As a woman of color I find your posting offensive and in very bad taste. You simply wish to rub salt in an ugly festering wound which evil minded people refuse to allow to heal. The civilized world No longer has any tolerance for your hateful public display of what passes to you as humor. Young men and women are dying have a shred of humanity."
No one at the restaurant could be reached for comment Tuesday morning, but Camuglia, the owner, told CBS affiliate KRQE that he never expected such a firestorm.Here's the statement they released on Facebook saying sales have gone up since the controversy:
The owner "said he has no regrets" according to the Post and even trolled Black Lives Matter again!
"I think it shows an interesting state of affairs of where our country is that people, first of all, can be offended by a statement about a vegetable," Camuglia told KOB. "Black olives matter, and it does matter in our tapenade."Note, he didn't apologize and grovel before these SJW terrorists, he stood firm and people rewarded him for it!
Bravo, Mr. Camuglia!
