Krystal Lake decided it would be an awesome idea to wear a hat to work at Home Depot to make a political statement and all hell broke loose. The hat says, “America Was Never Great.” It was meant to be a slap at Donald Trump… she’s a Bernie Sanders zombie. People were massively offended and Home Depot told her it was against the rules to wear such a hat at work. She won’t wear it to work again, but will keep wearing it in public. The free America that she hates so much, gives her the right to do that. I don’t like Trump either, but I equally despise Sanders. Politics aside, it is wholly inappropriate to don a hat saying such an inflammatory thing at work. And… she still doesn’t get it.
From Staten Island Live:
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Home Depot worker Krystal Lake, whose controversial anti-Trump hat took over the internet this week, says she won’t be donning the cap to work again.
“I won’t be wearing the hat inside Home Depot anymore,” Lake told the Advance Friday, “but I’m definitely going to be wearing it in public — 100 percent.”
Lake, who plans to go back to work next week, says she is “shocked all of this is happening over her hat.”
Home Depot told the Advance that the hat violates the store’s policy, which prohibits employees from wearing “items that reflect political statements.”
“No one on our management team saw her wearing the hat — otherwise, they would have had her remove it immediately.”
