A legendary fast-food chain is in hot water after refusing to serve Donald Trump supporters.
Shannon Riggs and her cousins were turned away from a Cook Out in Colonial Heights, Virginia, on Friday night, when they showed up in Donald Trump shirts and hats, WTVR reports.
Apparently, when Riggs attempted to order from the window, decked out in Trump apparel, an employee yelled “Hell no! I’m not serving them.”
The family’s orders were eventually taken, but they say that they never received their food. Eventually Riggs said she canceled her order and the family had their money refunded – but they were not satisfied with the situation.
“Once you witness [discrimination] firsthand, it’s a totally different experience,” Lauren Wolfrey, one family member, told WTVR. “I was in a state of shock.”
Other Donald Trump supporters are similarly displeased with the chain, with some on social media calling for a boycott of the brand.

“I could overlook your mediocre food but not your discriminatory practices,” reads one comment onCook Out’s Facebook page.“Your employees are obviously ignorant when they engage in such behavior and face little to no consequences from corporate. Keep your lousy food, your piss-poor corporate practices, and your political activism.”
Cook Out, a chain based in North Carolina best known for its traditional fast-food fare and milkshakes, did not immediate respond to Business Insider’s request for comment, but, in a statement to WTVR, the company said it is a “politically neutral company.”
“We welcome all customers regardless of political affiliation,” the company said in a statement. “Regarding the refusal of service at our Colonial Heights location, the situation has been resolved and was resolved that night per Cook Out policy.”
