Detroit food truck owner says she received online threats after refusing to serve cops [View all]

The owner of a Detroit food truck said she was threatened online by Trump supporters and All Lives Matter activists after announcing last week that she wouldn’t serve police officers.

Rocky Coronado, owner of Rocky’s Road Brew in Detroit, wrote on Facebook that she would not serve police officers, The Detroit News reported on Saturday, a day after the online post.

"The majority of my neighbors, customers, and myself do not feel safe around law enforcement agents (ICE, DPD, Homeland Security, etc)," Coronado wrote, referencing the acronyms for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Detroit Police Department. "I have asked friends from the National Lawyers Guild and I am well within my rights to refuse service to law enforcement agents.”

"This for the safety of my neighbors and customers (who have all become friends) and myself," Coronado wrote in the post, which included a photo that read: "We reserve the right to refuse service to cops."

The post ended with the hashtags #blacklivesmatter and #refugeeswelcome.

Coronado wrote the next day that she had been harassed online.

“Since then All Lives Matter, ‘Patriots,’ MAGA, & ‘Christians’ have been slandering, threatening, and harassing the business via Facebook,” a Saturday Facebook post read. “These people, their code switching, their hate, their ignorance shows me I’m on the right path. These people are the threat to freedom, equality, & peace in America.”
