Hobby Lobby is being hit with backlash today after a pro-Donald Trump message appeared on a display at one of their stores in the United States.
Social media users are calling for a boycott of the chain of stores after a photo went viral of decorative letters inside a Hobby Lobby being rearranged to say “USA Vote Trump.”
Hobby Lobby Hit With Backlash
It has not been confirmed whether it was a store employee or customers who arranged the letters in this way. Liberal social media users, however, don’t seem to care who did it; they are now determined to boycott Hobby Lobby.
“We’re all aware that customers re-arrange these letters all the time, right?” one user wrote. “Call my [sic] old-fashioned, but I prefer to be outraged at Hobby Lobby for making it so that employers can decide what kind of healthcare their employees can get.”

Another Twitter user attacked Hobby Lobby for being pro-Christian.
“I’ve been in a Hobby Lobby one time. The Jesus music was just too damn much. I had to wash off the stink of hypocrisy and Christianity when I got home,” one person wrote. Another user stated, “#HobbyLobby will get ZERO and I do mean ZERO of my family’s money. I will not set foot in one EVER again.”

“Hobby Lobby would welcome a leftist boycott, especially after their last boycott of Goya that led to record sales of beans,” tweeted author Tim Young.
His fellow author Dan Gainor added, “People have been writing stuff at #HobbyLobby forever. Then employees take it down. Is the left really this stupid? Ooops, they are.”

Hobby Lobby CEO Endorsed Trump
Hobby Lobby CEO David Green is a proud conservative who endorsed President Trump back in 2016.
“For Americans who value freedom of religion, we must elect a president who will support a Supreme Court that upholds not only this freedom but all that have emanated from it,” he said at the time. “That president is Donald Trump.”
