Woman freaks out over Hobby Lobby’s raw cotton display

NEW YORK POST – CHRIS PEREZ

 

A Texas woman has been getting ridiculed online for being “too sensitive” after she blasted the arts-and-crafts chain Hobby Lobby for selling faux raw cotton stalks — which she found offensive.

“This decor is WRONG on SO many levels,” Daniell Rider posted on Facebook this past Thursday, along with a photo of the phony plants.

“There is nothing decorative about raw cotton…A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves,” she said. “A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘decor.’”

Rider, who is black, appeared to take the picture of the cotton herself after spotting it at a Hobby Lobby in Killeen, Texas.

The young woman’s post has garnered over 186,000 comments and has been shared more than 17,000 times — with most calling Rider out for being “oversensitive.”
