Over the last week, we’ve been reporting on the controversy surrounding the comments Donald Trump made about Mexico during his campaign announcement last week.
In his speech, Trump slammed the U.S.’s relationship with Mexico, saying it has become a huge problem. He also said that too many criminals are coming into this country illegally from Mexico, and called many of them “rapists.”
Outraged by his comments, the Spanish-language television station Univision immediately announced that they would not be broadcasting Trump’s Miss Universe pageant this summer. Days later, NBC followed suit by ending their relationship with Trump, which they had built for over a decade. Soon after that, Macy’s also announced that they would be cutting ties with Trump after working with him for years.
Unfortunately for the legendary department store, this turned out to be a HUGE mistake. Just days after they severed their ties with Trump, the business mogul was named as the frontrunner in the race for the GOP nomination.
According to Daily Mail, Macy’s has been inundated with letters, phone calls, and online messages from over 30,000 Trump supporters, many of whom say they have cut up their store card. The customers have accused Macy’s of being against free speech when they decided to stop selling Trump’s clothing line for men, which they had sold for eleven years.
“I will be boycotting Macy’s,” angry customer Sue Reymann Garrett wrote on Facebook. “If they don’t want Trump I don’t want Macy’s. I will cut up me [sic] Macy’s card!”
“I will no longer shop at your store. Chicago. Trump will be our next President. Shame on you Macy’s!!!!!” wrote Jake Graham.
“I will be cutting up my macy’s card and you guys will no longer get me or my friends’ business any more for what you guys did to Donald J. Trump…I’ve been a proud customer for 20 years…well not any more…” Nino Castilano commented.
“Apparently as far as I can tell, Macy’s supports illegal immigration, a fact pointed out by dismissing D Trump due to his stance on illegal immigration, and in turn I am dismissing Macy’s by not patronizing this establishment any further,” added Ken Sheets.
The protest has gotten so large that even Trump himself has taken notice.
Looks like Macy’s messed with the WRONG person!
