It was all over the web in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern US this weekend, the grocery store chain Food Lion paid for an immense amount of social media ads after they experience immense backlash. Food Lion deeply respects the American flag, the company said in a statement posted on Twitter. We listened to our associates and customers about our uniform policy. We require that associates wear masks without writing, insignia or symbols. We will allow associates to wear masks with the American flag that meet this standard.

Amazing how they bend either way depending on how the way the wind blows.
4th time Ive seen this posted but Im not tired of being reminded of where to boycott
You’d think that by this time even the thickest business executive would have figured out that banning American flags is not a smart move.
Problem is theyll have to allow that horrid disrespectful BLM US flag, the African colors.
Maybe Food Lion should move their entire operation to Venezuela or Havana where they would be happy.
Yes. It is a mystery. The companies react instantly to social media. Yet the vast majority of social media protests are actually bots and not people at all. And the people who engage in the heavy SJW activities are usually unemployed losers who don’t patronize the businesses anyhow.
A study I lost the link too claimed a couple of years back that 60% of all Ad hits on the net are bots, often written by the people whose sites receive the hits. It is a major fraudulent activity. Some companies have cut their internet ad budgets at times and lost no revenue.
Has the president of Food Lion resigned yet?
Food Lion is a Balgian company. Perhaps they should just retutn to failing Europe
Isn’t the American flag a symbol? If so, then having a flag on an item wouldn’t meet the standard.
I’m obviously missing a dot to connect....
Actually Belgium people respect what America did for it twice. Go easy on them. Fire the president for not knowing his customers.
our FL is gross and i don’t go in there anyhow but FU Food Lion!! I won’t give $$ to stores that are bending over for the beasts in blm. Even if they regret their decision to do so later.
This link covers the bot problem you mentioned:
Same thing here at FR; there are trolls that just like to instigate arguments.
Money changes everything.
That’s good to know. My late Uncle Fred damn near lost his life fighting in The Ardennes in January 1945.
Blinds people to purpose.
