Coffee Shop owner, Larry Heafner from Billings Montana, offered an apology on Sunday after several customers threatened to boycott the shop after he posted racist and sexest messages on Favebook.
“I completely apologize,” the Coffee Tavern owner told KTVQ. “It was the dumbest thing I ever did.”
“I’m not going to sit and try to excuse my derogatory or negative comments because it was ridiculous,” Heafner continued. “I do want to say, I’m not racist by no means, and I’m not a woman hater.”
Josh Schleinging, also from Billings, came upon a comment Heafner left on a video of several black men beating on a white man. “These f*cking monkeys would be hanging if I saw this sh*t.” Heafner also added, “you don’t see white people doing this sh*t.”
After a heated argument between the two men on Facebook, Schleinging began sharing Heafner’s older posts. Per KTVQ:
“Before last week’s election, Heafner shared an image of Trump in the White House, with a caption that read, ‘If Trump wins the election, it’ll be the first time in history that a billionaire moves into public housing vacated by a black family.’
In an earlier post about Hillary Clinton, he wrote, ‘She needs f*cked with a bat! Right up her liberal f*cking ass!’”
The day before the election, when Heafner apparently thought Trump was going to lose, he posted this message: ‘The Coffee Tavern will never recognize a murdering whore for president!! Don’t like it, keep the fuck out!! We don’t tolerate scum!!!’”
“The people that know me know I’m not like that,” Heafner claimed after the incident. “I just hope that this community can overlook the stupid comments I made.”
Heafner was supposed to open The Coffee Tavern this week, but is now postponed indefinitely due to the backlash.
