"If you voted for Trump you cannot eat here! No nazis."
That's what the note on the front door to Honolulu's Cafe 8 1/2 read as customers came to the restaurant. The photo has circulated online as a firestorm has swept through social media. Some praised the signs while others condemned their biased actions for not allowing Trump supporters to eat.
"It's childish and very unprofessional. The restaurant owner doesn't have to worry. I will not be stepping foot in that establishment," said Susan Roberts, a Hawaiian Trump supporter.
Since the posting, Republicans have been outspoken in their disgust for the offensive sign. Willes Lee, the former chairman for the Republican Party in Hawaii, told Fox News the sign reminds him of the "racist and hate-filled" days before Hawaii became a state.
"Remember when Filipinos couldn't go in certain places, or Japanese wouldn't be allowed in many homes? And it didn't matter who they voted for."
The owners of the restaurant downplayed the sign, saying they simply wanted to show their opposition to Trump and "don't want to create trouble."
