Hillary Supporters Threaten St. Louis Imo’s Pizza Joint Over Trump Sign
Outraged leftists have threatened to boycott a St. Louis Imo’s pizza restaurant for posting a Trump sign in its window.
The leftists don’t appreciate Trump’s pro-American message.
It’s racist or something….

Imo’s is a VERY POPULAR local pizza chain in St. Louis.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:
Some Tower Grove South residents have threatened to boycott the Imo’s Pizza on Morganford Road for displaying a pro-Donald Trump sign in the window.
A resident took to Facebook to tell others on the Tower Grove South community page about the sign. The post garnered hundreds of interactions, and some responded with a move to boycott the restaurant, at 3222 Morganford.
“Trump is now screwing with my go to ‘stress eating’ place? He’s basically the reason I NEED to eat there. You’ve finally crossed the line, buddy! #imwithher,” one person said.
The neighborhood is known locally for being politically left. The store’s manager didn’t say that any money would be contributed to the Republican nominee’s campaign. He told a Post-Dispatch reporter the sign simply signified his own support for Trump.
The shop’s manager said Thursday he has heard comments about the sign. But with more important family matters at hand, he said he didn’t care about the negative reception from some. Well, he used more colorful language than that. He hung up before giving his name.
Some people in the Facebook thread on the post came to the store’s defense, saying the restaurant’s operators had the right to exercise their freedom of speech.
“Quit trying to bully people … This has nothing to do with Imo’s and everything to do with your politics,” one person said.
