Americans Boycott Major Grocery Chain Over Donation to Rally That Preceded Capitol Siege

Cancel culture is coming for anyone within earshot of DC on January 6th.

There are plenty of ways in which Americans can make their voices heard.  This is the land of the free, after all, and the whole idea was to allow the people of this great nation to express themselves however they see fit.

So, not only do we see our fellow countrymen using their very literal vote to make a change in our political world, but they also vote with their wallet.  They can pick and choose who they spend their money with, for whatever reason they see fit.

This week, one of the south’s most popular grocers is coming under fire for an heiress’ hefty donation to the rally that preceded the siege of the US Capitol.

Southern grocery store chain Publix is on the defensive against boycott demands from shoppers who are angered that an heiress to the Florida-based business reportedly donated $300,000 to the January 6 rally in Washington, D.C. that occurred before the deadly Capitol riot.

Publix attempted to put distance between the company and Julie Jenkins Fancelli, a Donald Trump mega donor who is one of late founder George W. Jenkins’ seven children. The company aimed to get out in front of the controversy by announcing the heiress is “not an employee” and is “neither involved in our business operations, nor does she represent the company in any way.” The donation blowback prompted wider criticism of corporate money in politics and reminded business owners of the power behind social media-inspired boycott movements.

Publix also described the Capitol attacks as a “national tragedy,” before declining to comment further on Fancelli’s reported donation to organizers with the help of right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

Organizers of the boycott were using #BOYCOTTPUBLIX to spread the word on social media.
