Stephanie Wilkinson, owner of the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, kicked Mrs. Sanders and her family out of the restaurant and then proceeded to yell at them when they tried to go to a different restaurant across the street.
“Once Sarah and her family left, of course Sarah was asked to please vacate, Sarah and her husband just went home. They had sort of had enough. But the rest of her family went across the street to a different restaurant.
“The owner of the Red Hen then followed them across the street, called people, and organized a protest yelling and screaming at them from outside the other restaurant and creating A scene,” said Mike Huckabee, Sarah Sander's father.
This was more than just refusing service.
