At Belle’s Smokin’ BBQ in Northern Kentucky, the famous “Smokin’ Spuds” aren’t the only thing people are talking about.
Instead, the barbecue food truck in Williamstown, Kentucky, is facing heat – and some support – after owners started selling T-shirts with the message “I support LGBTQ: Liberty, Guns, Bible, Trump, BBQ.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Owner Jamie Smith said workers at the traveling barbecue booth have been wearing the shirts for a year and a half or so. But Belle’s Smokin’ BBQ had never faced any backlash over them, he said, until a Facebook post advertising the shirts Thursday went viral.
“I posted it at about 6, and at about 10 a.m. is when the threatening calls came,” Smith said. “Social media went berserk.”
Belle’s Smokin’ BBQ’s Facebook page was lit up with comments and bad reviews, and Smith said he received “about 30” threatening calls. A local church canceled its order for the upcoming Sprouts and Stouts Festival in Covington, although Smith said that’s the only order the food truck has lost. Meanwhile, it’s picked up four more in the aftermath of the controversy.
