The Lewis Country Store in Tennessee has gained attention for their signs with messages like
“Never forget Benghazi”
“Trump that Bitch.”
Their latest offensive signage reads out in red letters,
“$50,000 Reward for Kathy Griffin’s head delivered.”
This was obviously in response to the explosive photo shoot where Griffin brandished a fake, bloodied, head of Trump. She has since apologized and said that Trump and family are trying to ruin her life.
According to local media, an attorney with the Metropolitan Government of Nashville Department of Law said the digital sign is on private property and
“does not appear to be an obvious violation of the Metropolitan Code of Laws.
“Generally, the First Amendment protects even speech that may be construed as offensive.“
The store owner, Bradford Lewis, has refused to speak to the media as the controversy gains national attention. But the sign was changed sometime before Friday afternoon to read,
“America first, screw the rest of y’all”
The digital signs has also criticized Shell Oil, who refused to do business with the convenience store after their recent controversial sign.
So, Mr. Lewis is just making friends all over. Who needs Twitter when you’re an asshole with a giant sign? (Photo, submitted; via MS News Now)
