A Home Depot employee is causing quite a stir online after a photo of her in her trademark orange apron and a hat that read America Was Never Great went viral. I was honestly shocked I didnt expect any of this to happen, Staten Island resident Krystal Lake, a Bernie Sanders supporter, told the Staten Island Advance. A spokeswoman from Atlanta-based Home Depot said employees arent to wear items that reflect political statements, but Lakes says she definitely will wear her hat to work again. I feel it offended a lot of people because a lot of (Donald) Trump supporters live in Staten Island, she told the Staten Island Advance, noting her hats send up of Trumps Make America Great Again slogan. Trump is very rash and in your face, but when someone else has a message against him, his supporters cant take the criticisms.

If she does not like America, then she is free to go back to Africa.
Hat endorsed by Mooch Obama.
Sounds like it’s our COUNTRY that “offends” the bitch.
Home Depot can fire her or a lot of people will fire Home Depot. Beyond that, she is just asking for someone to get in her face on the job.
With the soul of privilege, so blatant in her appearance and demeanor, she would be completely out of place in a black culture.
Yep. Her hat really ticks me off. I wouldn't care if it said "#NeverTrump". That's political--but this is closer to seditious. I'd leave my cart at the counter full of stuff, walk off, and go down the street to Lowes.
“If she does not like America, then she is free to go back to Africa.”
No matter how bad they perceive it is in the United State, no one ever leaves to live in Africa. Why?
Definitely the message Krystal lives,,,
Enjoy, Loser !
Send her back to Somali cesspool
She is right, America is not great; IT IS FREAKIN’ FANTASTIC!!!
Back when Ferguson was big in the news, I went to a Big Lots store near my home, and one of the black female employees was wearing a Black Lives Matter tee shirt instead of the Big Lots tee shirt which was the same color.
I emailed the home office in Ohio about the incident and within a day they called me and asked for more info. Soon the district manager called me, and eventually the store manager did as well. I never saw that woman in the store again......................
If I went through her line at checkout, I would have to tell her that is the stupidest hat I’ve ever seen...
I’d like to see ISIS take care of her...
I would like to see what would happen if she wore a hat in Russia stating “Russia was never great”
She would be sent to a re-education camp before it went viral.
Free speech is a wonderful thing and is one of the attributes of a great country.
Ironically, she is expressing her negative ideas in one of the few countries that would allow such expressions.
She is sadly ignorant of what makes anything great. Let alone the country she was born into.
If she wears the hat to work then fire her ass.
