A Kentucky barbecue joint is facing serious blowback after some of their merchandise has been deemed inappropriate and offensive to the LGBTQ community.
Belle’s Smoking BBQ, which operates out of a food truck based in Williamstown, Ky., promoted their new t-shirts on social media this week, which are emblazoned with the slogan, “I support LGBTQ – Liberty, Guns, Bible, Trump, BBQ.”
Many were quick to respond in the comments, calling the misappropriation of the “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer” slogan bigoted and harmful.
“I posted the shirt for new swag and it just went out of hand and it got blowed up,” Belle’s Smoking BBQ owner Jamie Smith told Fox 19. He added that even before advertising the shirts on Facebook, he had sold about 100 of the shirts.
