Farmer's Market 'Karen' Attacks Gay Cookie Vendor for Handing Out Pride Flags [View all]

Gail Hayden, director of the California Farmers’ Market Association, was captured on video last week at the Livermore Farmers’ Market berating Dan Floyd, owner of Dan Good Cookies, for handing out Pride flags at his booth, and the clip is something to see. Hayden has since resigned.

“I don’t even care what the flags are for,” Hayden claimed. “This person may have an issue about ‘xyz.’ I’ve been in places for 40 years where they bring out fetuses and put ’em on ironing boards. My job is to run the market, not to satisfy your political point of view.”

Floyd said he felt the LGBTQ community was targeted by Hayden, telling NBC Bay Area: “She became very confrontational. Very condescending about the entire thing. I definitely felt scared, and I definitely felt scared for my business. It definitely felt like the flags and what they represent were the target of her tirade.”

Hayden’s daughter Kayla claimed the flags were putting children in danger: “Little kids poking each other with them, using them as swords.”
