BREAKING: Owner of Red Hen restaurant gets bad news from Historic Lexington

Stephanie Wilkinson, a co-owner of a restaurant who refused to serve Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Friday reportedly cited morality and living up to "certain standards” as the reason why is now under fire. The Historic Downtown Lexington Virginia Facebook page has a poll up asking "Should Stephanie Wilkinson of Main Street Lexington be able to keep her position as Director?" and it appear to be unanimous that Wilkinson should step down. As of this writing, 95% call for the Red Hen owner to step down as Director of Main Street Lexington.



Historic Lexington apologized for Wilkinson making their town look bad:



Wilkinson, who partially owns Red Hen, should resign especially when she is supposed to be helping business and promote Lexington. Her being director is a conflict of interest and also politically biased.

Red Hen resides in a very red county. What she did to Sanders may have been legal but it was colossally stupid.

Stephanie Wilkinson, part owner of Red Hen is a cousin of Meryl Streep, the hypocrite BS artist. Enough said. She should be removed as Director, she is unqualified with horrific politics and business sense.

Her excuse for what she did is even worse than making Sara and her family leave. Justice will be served when her lack of customers caused her and the three employees their business!

Wonderful reaction. Time to decide to come together as a nation and support each other, no matter are beliefs are. You are not right. And the more you shove your ideals down our throat the more we will fight back. Live and let live. We lived together with our differences before. You be gay well be straight. It’s been happening for thousands of years. But now your hateful and we won’t have it.

Just go to show....small minded people need to keep politics out of their business....they lose every time! Evidently she did not consider her employees. Maybe she was just worried about what Streep would think......instead of her customers!

There was absolutely no excuse fot what they did to our sweet Sarah. Boycott, the red hen, and shut it down. There should be consequences for the insulting actions and embarrassment Sarah had to endure.

How embarrassing. The people of Lexington deserve a better representative of their great city

and Sarah Sanders deserves better than she got . No matter where someone is employed or who the are they

should be treated equally!

Hopefully The Red Hen will hopefully survive without Stephanie being the owner, because She has tainted herself her community, and Restaurant's reputation. Even after an apology the public won't believe her, as her very selfish move affects all the employees that most likely didn't share her in her rude and unethical behavior!

All you guys are hypocrites. You can talk liberal all you want. You all have your prejudices and like Trump think no one else should have any rights. Shame on you all. You applauded the rights of a baker,his prejudice against LGBT couple,but you rail against an owner of a business. You can't have it both ways.

    Latrina John 25 days ago (report)

    So you agree the baker has a right not to expand his inventory to include gay cakes? Good to hear. But the thing is, the baker didn't refuse to service anyone, the gents could have bought a cake they sold but had no right to force to bake a cake the baker didn't offer. These Red Hen love birds refused services that they currently offered to the public. Probably a subtle legal difference a dolt like you wouldn't understand.

Sorry us white people dont have to worry about how many white people are gonna be murdered by other whites.

The baker refused to put a big dick on the cake. If they had wanted a plain cake or other decoration, we wouldnt be talking about it.

The left are hypocritical morons.

Christians and conservatives are labeled as intolerant, but look and see who is intolerant. To attack someone and their children because of their political affiliation is disgusting. I can disagree with you and still respect you. Any business that practices or approves of this type of behavior should be boycotted. You can say what goes around comes around, or karma, but actually it is a Biblical principal of "seed time and harvest" what a man sows he will reap.
