    Home Depot bans worker from wearing 'America was never great' hat

    Home Depot has banned a worker from wearing a hat emblazoned with the words 'America was never great' after legions of Donald Trump supporters complained.
    Krystal Lake, 22, wore a white cap carrying the slogan to work at a Home Depot store in Staten Island, New York, this week.
    A picture of her wearing the hat went viral and split Twitter and Facebook, with some calling her unpatriotic but others defending her right to free speech.
    Miss Lake says she has received a barrage of racist abuse and death threats, but insists she will not stop wearing the cap.

    The Home Depot worker and City University of New York student told the Staten Island Advance that she took inspiration from Trump's signature 'Make America Great Again' hats.
    'I feel [the 'America was never great' hat] offended a lot of people because a lot of Trump supporters live in Staten Island,' she said.
    'Trump is very rash and in your face, but when someone else has a message against him, his supporters can't take the criticisms.'

      Not happy here? Don't like it in America? Then by all means go elsewhere! The world is open to her and her ilk, no one will keep them here.

        Yes if all the complaining non-America loving douche bags left, think of what a better place America would be. Years ago she would have been fired

      I worked there 20 years ago. Back then, you were only allowed to wear a "Home Depot" hat. You also needed a collared shirt, back brace and safety shoes. A new manager was busting my chops for wearing a Yankees hat. Every time he asked where my HD hat was, I would ask why he wasn't wearing his back brace. It makes it hard to bitch about the rules when you are not following them yourself.

        Of course she is free to express her opinion.
        Just as I'm free to shop at a store that doesn't pay her salary.

              I'll buy her a one-way ticket to North Korea so she can see what 'great' is all about.

                She's of African ancestry.
                Send her back to Somalia or any one of the shithole's she should have grown up in.
                See how great that shithole is.

                  An even better idea but with my luck, the loser-in-chief will give her extended family a tax-funded one-way ticket here from Somalia to live with her in a tax-funded sanctuary city so she feels 'safe'...and there goes my next paycheck.

                  So better I send her on her way to Pyongyang to live out the good life so I can afford to eat next week

                  next...

                Krystal Lake?? I guess her mother was a Friday the 13th fan.

                Yeah of course she got racial comments, don't they all.

                But wait it's not only racial. Even the fags are faking stuff.

                Freedom of expression is a right(even for members of the FSA, black lives matter movement etc etc) . I paid for the additional lettering to fix it for her. Like everything else, someone else is always paying their way...

                  Yup that whole freedom of expression. Where is the freedom to kick someone's ass?

                    If she wasn't working there I'd say it's her right to be a jackass. But she was....so....employer gets last say.
