Complaint to Hobby Lobby over 'insensitive' cotton plant fall decor goes viral

Hobby Lobby Texas woman calls Hobby Lobby's fall cotton plant decor 'wrong on so many levels' in viral post
Howard Terry | 20 September, 2017, 00:47

It is unclear which Hobby Lobby location had the cotton-filled vases on display.

"There is nothing decorative about raw cotton, a commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves", Rider wrote along with the photo she posted to Hobby Lobby's Facebook page.

"A little sensitivity goes a long way", she added, asking the retailer to "remove this decor".

The post has amassed more than 200,000 comments and 88,000 reactions in just five days.

"This d├ęcor is wrong on so many levels", wrote Daniell Rider of Killeen, TX.

"It's a plant", one user commented, according to AL.com.

In another cotton flap, Lipscomb University President Randy Lowry recently apologized in writing to black students there after they visited his home and were offended by cotton-flower centerpieces he had around the house, the Post noted. "What difference does it make if it's a decoration or part of a product".

There are supporters on the post, but there are many more detractors to her complaints over cotton.

Hobby Lobby is not commenting on the faux controversy and as of the writing of this column they were still selling cotton-themed decorations on its website.

"Take all the cotton out of your clothing, bed clothes, thread, drapes, etc". Come on people this is a little extreme I had to read the article to find out why it was so offensive.
