Outrageous 'Pig Supporters Not Welcome': MO Business Faces Backlash Over Pro-Police Flag
A Missouri business owner who was threatened and harassed after putting up a pro-law enforcement flag joined Steve Doocy on "Fox & Friends" Monday morning to share her story.
Cherri Elder, the owner of Elder’s Antiques in St. Louis, said she wanted to show support for the police officers who patrol the area by displaying an American flag with a blue stripe in front of her shop.
She said people began expressing their disapproval of the flag on social media and in person. When the backlash became too "nasty," she decided to take the flag down and assumed the controversy was over.
Apparently it wasn't, and she was surprised to find a note on her store's window about a month later.
“Pig supporters not welcome. Flag goes down or you go down!” the message read.
She said she and her family have left the flag down after the unknown individual or individuals' attempt to "scare us," but they stand resolute in their support of law enforcement.
Doocy asked if there are any plans to bring back the flag at Elder’s Antiques.
"I told my daughters we're not going to change anything we do. If they want to put it up, put it up," Elder said. "But just don't put it up for spite or for any other reason than that we still support the police. That will not change."
