Nicholle Haber Lewis has a clothing and accessory resale store in Chico, CA. Lewis thought it would be a great idea to post an image depicting the President of the United States as Hitler, to help promote her store. Nicholle Haber Lewis didn’t count, however, on the backlash, she’d receive for placing her vile and hateful message on a billboard in an area that is populated by mostly conservatives.
Things didn’t go as well as Nicholle had hoped…and now, she’s lashing out at the owner of the billboard company who was inundated with calls from angry residents.
Rouse & Revolt owner Nicholle Lewis told Newsweek that she didn’t sleep much last night. Her phone wouldn’t stop going off with the persistent buzzing of death threats for her sign, which stylizes the number 45 into a swastika and features Trump posed in a Hitler-esque stance.
“I’m living in a small, podunk red town and I’m already getting death threats,” said Lewis, whose store is in right-leaning Chico, population 90,000. “My business has completely floundered. Overnight I had more one-star reviews than all the reviews I’ve received in a year.”
The sign was up for less than 24 hours before Stott Outdoor Advertising took it down amid a backlash that featured online attacks.
But Lewis said she’s standing behind her beliefs.
“I don’t necessarily think that just because I’m a business doesn’t mean I can’t mix my beliefs,” Lewis said. “That’s a common misconception that you can’t mix politics and business. … I have a platform and I’m going to use it.”
Lewis has used the billboard at the corner of Third Avenue and Mangrove Avenue all year, though this is the first time she’s made it political.
“He is not presidential, he is not a president,” Lewis said. “He is a celebrity who was born into money. And he’s a Nazi sympathizer. I am going to stand behind my beliefs regardless.”
Lewis said she has been getting some support, too.
Lewis got slammed by bad reviews on her store, Rouse and Revolt Facebook page, as well as her personal Facebook page, where she posted this video. In the video, Lewis pleas with liberals to make false claims against the sign company, as a payback because she’s been hit with bad reviews. That’s called liberal logic, in case you’re not familiar with how liberal operate.
Watch, as angry liberal Nicholle Haber Lewis threatens the sign company with a lawsuit while simultaneously asking libs to help her destroy his business.
The general manager of Stott Outdoor Advertising replied to Newsweek:
Jim Moravec, the general manager of Stott Outdoor Advertising, told Newsweek that the company took it down because “a lot of people misinterpreted the billboard and who the speaker was.”
“I should have not accepted the ad in the first place,” Moravec said, adding that the sign looked more like a call for action than an ad for the clothing store. – Newsweek
