A Washington, D.C. restaurant called “The Red Hen” is being mistakenly targeted on Yelp by reviewers confusing it with a Virginia restaurant that kicked out White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Sanders confirmed Saturday that she and her family were told to leave by the owner of “The Red Hen” in Lexington, Va. Facebook and Yelp users promptly flooded the restaurant’s pages with one- and five-star reviews, depending on their political leanings.
But the D.C. restaurant, located in the Bloomingdale area of the District, was caught in the crossfire.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Great Food, great ethics,” one Yelp reviewer wrote. “If you think otherwise, you can go **** yourself. Great place for the family!”
“You want my money but you don’t want my politics,” an upset Facebook reviewer wrote on the restaurant’s page. “You can’t have it both ways for you to do what you did to Miss Sanders I find very disgraceful and in bad taste.”
The D.C. restaurant posted on Facebook that they were unaffiliated with the Lexington establishment, but numerous commenters still admonished D.C.’s The Red Hen for not standing up to its “sister restaurant.” The two are not connected in any way, other than sharing a name.
They also sent an email to staff, obtained by Washingtonian magazine, clarifying that they were not the same establishment.
