Red Hen Owner Blames Her Staff For What Happened!

Stephanie Wilkinson, the co-owner of the Red Hen restaurant, is facing tremendous backlash for throwing out Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

Wilkinson thought she was taking some sort of stand against the evil Trump administration, but apparently miscalculated the repercussions she would face from the millions and millions of Trump supporters around the nation. Now that the heat has been turned up, Wilkinson is starting to suffer. So much so that she is even blaming her homosexual staff members for what happened.

As reported by foxnews.com


In Lexington – a spot of blue in a sea of red that sided with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election by a 2-1 margin – most local business owners sided with The Red Hen co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson giving a brusque reception to Sanders.

Stephen Russek, a former restaurant owner in the area, however, said "they had no right to do that."

"You have your political opinions, you don't throw somebody out of your restaurant," Russek, who lives nearby, said. "They ought to be shut down."

Wilkinson told The Washington Post that her staff had called her to report Sanders was in the restaurant. She cited several reasons, including the concerns of several restaurant employees who were gay and knew Sanders had defended Trump's desire to bar transgender people from the military.

"Tell me what you want me to do. I can ask her to leave," Wilkinson told her staff, she said. "They said yes."


Once again, an uninformed liberal makes a ridiculous argument. Wilkinson has faced criticism for her actions all over the country. Even some non-Trump supporters have called her actions distasteful. A restaurant chain owner has also made sure to let people know that his restaurants by the same name are not affiliated in any way with the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia. Wilkinson at first was standing behind her convictions, and doing what was right. Now she was just doing the bidding of what her staff told her to do.

Do you think she was wrong for kicking out Sanders? Let us know in the comments.

Is this libtard related to Hillsry the hag, already blaming others for her failings. I know she is a cousin of Maryl Streep, The Hypocrite Supreme Queen of Hollyweird, another commie.

It's dosen't matter if it Democrats, Republicans or any other party. Restaurants about food and service, not politics. What she did is wrong and disrespectful and plain ugly.

She was wrong to do what she did and she is DEAD WRONG to be such a lily livered coward as to blame it on someone else. It is her Restaurant and she inevitable makes the final decisions as to what to do. She just thought she was going to get some publicity for doing it, and she is, but it CERTAINLY IS NOT WHAT SHE EXPECTED.

Stephanie Wilkinson is to blame for her own actions. No one else. Her employees didn''t force her to kick out our Press Secretary and her family. Stephanie lost not only that amount of money and tips when she told Sarah and her family to leave, but I am sure she lost more customers for her actions. When will the liberals wake up in this country?

It's a no-brainer. Of course she was wrong. And don't try to blame the staff. She is the owner, and ultimately responsible all by herself. You don't treat your customers shabbily over your personal politics. You treat your customers in a way that will keep customers coming back and paying your bills. Period!

Patti Mason 25 days ago (report)

It's the way she kicked Sarah out. She said she doesn't want someone that supports Trump's policies or his Presidency. So she was kicking a lot of us out at the same time - it wasn't just Sarah. If she meant to kick out only Sarah she should have limited her comments to Sarah personally - not talk about the rest of us. The rest of us are politely complying with her request to not go there. I fail to see the issue - she asked Trump supporters to leave and we did - we are merely respecting her request.

Oh, she will spend the next few months regretting this decision. I suspect she'll have to close eventually. Every other restaurant in Lexington just gained a huge advantage. They didn't ask the Press Secretary of the United States of America to leave.

In the first place, the staff had no right to call the owner to say who is dining in. That is none of their business. Do your job and keep your insubordinate mouth shut! Who the customers are is irrelevent so long as their money is green. In this case, Sanders' money is still green. It's just geen somewhere else! And now that will apply to a lot of other former patrons too. What's in your wallet! In 30 days, this place won't even be able to pay the liquor salesman.

    safedriver180 24 days ago (report)

    When you think about it, Ms. Sanders is a federal employee who just so happens to work at the White House. This does not mean that she sets policy or kisses up to the President. But she chose YOUR restaurant, not somebody elses. should have been an honor to have her there. Now, she will choose somebody elses place and YOU chose for her. Hard to believe!!!!

Sherry 24 days ago (report)

Yes, she was wrong on every level. Think about it. If a restaurant owner were to judge each and every customer on the various things she or her staff found unsavory, that restaurant owner would be out of business. Her staff is also ill-informed. Trump is not anti-transgender. Trump simply said that they are not going to enter the military and get their medical needs met to either start or finish the transition. I know some will be angered by my saying that, but seriously, the military is not the place to find yourself. If you enter the military as a man, you should leave as a man. If you enter the military as a woman, you should leave as a woman. POTUS was elected because he won the majority of the electoral college. Over 50% of your fellow Americans elected this man. If you don't like the outcome of the election, vote in the next election. Don't pretend that any of us have all the answers, and don't assume your opinion carries more weight than your neighbors. When you insult the President, you insult and show hatred for each and every person that felt voting for him was the right thing to do. Showing support for your President shows support for your fellow Americans. Have an open mind. Groupthink is so vacuous of real thought.
