When a cop-hating woman walked up to a local coffee shop, she noticed a sign sitting in the window that immediately triggered the snowflake to start melting. The African-American customer complained that the shop’s sign made her “uncomfortable,” taking to social media in hopes of bullying the owners into removing their sign, but the coffee shop fired back with the perfect response, and now, she’s likely regretting that she opened her mouth.
Brandi Nicole Wilson went to grab a cup of coffee at The Ground-A-Bout coffee shop in Jackson, Missouri when she came across the 3-word sign, making her hesitant to enter the shop. According to Brandi, the “Back the Blue” sign that she noticed in the window made her feel “super uncomfortable being African American,” claiming that “walking in it’s a lot like a shouting ‘Black lives don’t matter’ sign.”
She took to Facebook, writing on the company’s business page about her concerns regarding the sign, which unsurprisingly sparked quite the controversy. When The Ground-A-Bout and the community responded to Brandi’s ignorant opinion, it put her in her place, and it certainly wasn’t the reaction that she was seeking.
The Ground-A-Bout had the perfect response to Brandi’s concerns. “Our support of law enforcement is IN NO WAY whatsoever stating that ‘black lives don’t matter.’ We support racial diversity as well as cultural diversity and religious diversity. And we believe that supporting our law enforcement AND those issues can be accomplished together without exclusion. We’ll be disappointed to lose your business ma’am, but the sign will remain,” they shot back, according to Blue Lives Matter.
Since Brandi’s post and The Ground-A-Bout’s response, the previously tiny coffee shop has had an overwhelming amount of support rushing in from all over the country. The support they have received after their decision to keep their sign has blown them away. In just one day, they got nearly 1,000 new Facebook subscribers, proving that they made the right decision.
The company followed up with the community with a post that read, “While this is obviously not a way one hopes to gain exposure for their business, it’s apparent that this has struck a chord with many people. While not getting any further into anything political, we want to thank you. We cannot express our gratitude enough to our peeps!” according to 24 Military New.
Of course, a loudmouthed liberal like Brandi can never keep their mouth shut, always having to dig an even deeper hole, so she fired back one more time.
“This is exact response that will cause people like myself not to drink there, obviously I’m a consumer and my money is just as important as yours I wasn’t mean or nasty with my comment but then there are people like you who just don’t get it. I don’t think you will. Thank you ground about for replying respectfully! But there are other coffee shops and I’ll just go there,” she posted in response to the company keeping the sign up.

The joke’s on Brandi. The only thing accomplished by her pathetic behavior was helping the business boom. Although she likely hoped that liberal media would pick up her story and put the pro-law enforcement company out of business, she was sadly mistaken and didn’t realize just how much support most citizens have for our nation’s heroes in blue. Maybe she can take a note out of The Ground-A-Bout’s book on how to respond respectfully and maintain integrity because she made herself look like a fool.
