Co-owner of Red Hen, Stephanie Wilkinson, ignited a national firestorm when she kicked out White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and her family from her restaurant in Lexington, Virginia.

As a result of the backlash, Wilkinson is resigning from her key leadership role as the executive director of Main Street Lexington. She sent a letter of resignation to the group’s president Tuesday morning.

Ironically, Main Street Lexington is an organization designed to promote the business community in Lexington.

After initially defending her decision to turn away Sarah Sanders, and admitting she would “absolutely” do it again, Wilkinson seems to be having second thoughts.

The president of Main Street Lexington, Elizabeth Outland Branner, accepted Wilkinson’s resignation and wrote the following in an email to WSLS 10:

“Considering the events of the past weekend, Stephanie felt it best that for the continued success of Main Street Lexington, she should step aside.”

Sarah Sanders had taken to social media Saturday morning following the incident from the night before, tweeting:

“Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”

President Donald Trump fired back at Wilkinson and the Red Hen restaurant tweeting:

“The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!”

Overwhelmed by protests, the restaurant is now currently closed and doesn’t have plans to reopen until July 5th.

The Republican Party of Virginia joined thousands of others in calling for a boycott of the Red Hen, declaring:

“Patriotic Trump supporters are the silent majority in Virginia!

The liberal owner of the “Red Hen” restaurant in Lexington threw out Sarah Huckabee in the middle of dinner just because she works for President Trump! Once again the intolerant left has shown its true colors.”

Meanwhile in D.C., Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) told supporters at a rally to take their bullying of Trump officials even further:

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Her remarks drew criticism from both sides of the isle and even brought talks of a censure motion in Congress.

Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) is urging his colleagues on the hill to have a floor vote on his motion to censure Maxine Waters.

It is unclear at this time if the House will move forward on Biggs’ motion to censure Waters.
