June 27, 2018 - A West Virginia man has been charged after police said he threw feces at the Red Hen Tuesday while others were standing outside the restaurant protesting.
Protesters made their presence known, lining the street and corner and drawing attention to what many of them call an attack on President Donald Trump's Administration.
The outrage comes days after the Red Hen's co-owner, Stephanie Wilkinson,asked Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave the restaurant Friday night, June 22. Since then, there has been major outrage online over Wilkinson's actions.
Yesterday, people turned to the street with their signs in hand to protest the restaurant, which has remained closed since the incident.
Wilkinson resigned yesterday as executive director of Main Street Lexington. The group's board president, Elizabeth Outland Branner, says Wilkinson felt she should resign considering the past weekends events.
