A mother is trying to fend off a boycott of her Menlo Park business after a photo of her at President Donald Trump’s Washington, D. C. rally got shared across the internet.
Leschly has been a customer of the popular candy shop, owned by Suzi Tinsley, since she was in middle school.
Henry Shane of Menlo Park has participated in several social justice events over the last year, and he’s now calling for a boycott of the candy shop.
Tinsley, owner of the Sugar Shack, would not go on camera with NBC Bay Area, but she did issue a statement.
Shane said he is not the organizer of the online boycott, but he is hoping to contact Tinsley to open a dialogue.
