Payback is a bitch, or so Macy’s is finding out after coming down on the wrong side of the American people on the issue of illegal immigration.
Thousands of people responded negatively to Macy’s cutting ties with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump over the company’s disagreements with his statements on illegal immigration.
TMZ reported Monday that the retail giant has been “inundated with complaints” from about 30,000 customers about them unfairly punishing Trump since announcing the end of their relationship with him two weeks ago.
Thousands of customers said they will never shop at the store again and have even cut up their Macy’s credit cards.
One staffer told TMZ on condition of anonymity, that “the blowback has been much worse than we expected” and that Macy’s is spending “way too much time having to deal with this.”
Macy’s official spokesperson tried to play down reports of a customer revolt, telling TMZ, “Our Facebook page is often times used by our customers to express their feelings or points of view. Many times it does not correlate to any action.”
Well in this case, it most clearly has, and then some.
I guess Macy’s somehow missed what happened with Chick-Fil-A a few years back, when attacked by liberals and Democrats, customers gave the popular chain massive support, resulting in record sales for nearly every store and in the history of the company.
For his part, Trump is pleased with the news:
I am so happy that people are boycotting Macy's http://t.co/qtmaEbeVy8
