They say in show business, “Any publicity is good as long as they use your name.”
That may work in show business but it’s not the best policy in other businesses.
For example, this was posted online by a California visitor to a Lexington, Va., restaurant: “I was dining at the Red Hen and witnessed them rudely refuse service to Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I was disgusted and appalled by the incident. I will never eat at this establishment again.”
Mrs. Sanders is President Trump’s press secretary and daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. After a waiter posted that his boss refused service to Mrs. Sanders and her family, she tweeted that she was asked to leave because she works for the President. Mrs. Sanders wrote: “Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully.”
The cyberverse lit up, pro and con. Another wrote, referring to a Colorade business, “The baker had a right to not make a cake for a gay couple, right? This restaurant owner had a right to not serve someone who lies to the American people.”
Is it a good policy to let your political feelings decide your business policies? Could this kind of action backfire on you?
You’ll have to live with what happens.
