Hamilton BBQ restaurant proudly displaying confederate flag vandalized
The owners of Hillbilly Heaven are expecting its best Wednesday turnout despite the soon-to-be opened second-location of the restaurant being vandalized.
The southern-style BBQ joint made headlines earlier this week for proudly displaying a confederate flag in its window.
Cameron Bailey, one of the owners of the restaurant, said he had his best Tuesday in three years and is not at all worried about the vandalism.
“This is the tip of the iceberg. There’s going to be a lot more of this, but whatever,” Bailey said.
The restaurant’s infamous confederate flag had blotches of black paint splattered on it, and the side of the restaurant had “Antifa zone” sprayed onto the black wall. While Bailey insists the flag is not a representation of superiority, the words “Antifa” is a reference to anti-fascism and seems to be a response to the flag.
