Even after the events of last week, the owner of the two-story building at Washington and Grove streets in West Roxbury remains a Trump supporter and so has kept flying a flag reading "Trump 2020: No more bullshit" from a flagpole at the top of the building.
That's become a problem for Kimberly and Luis Arcos, who own Target Pizza on the first floor: They have nothing to do with the flag, which flies in the air right above their entrance, but angry people are calling them up just to tell say they're boycotting the place and writing bad Yelp reviews, even people who obviously have never been there, such as Susan S. of San Francisco, who this week wrote her first Yelp "review":
MANY PEOPLE ARE SAYING the pizza here is not good. However, the tRump tears are fine as long as they are fresh. Seriously, one week after the seditious attack on Capitol Hill the owner of this pizzeria still has his Trump 2020 flag flying. Choose wisely.
The Arcoses bought the business in 2019 from their landlord, Francois Youhanna. Kimberly Arcos said today that neither she nor her husband took sides in the presidential election and that when they've brought up their flag problems with Youhanna, his only response was to say that if people have issues they can talk to him.
But that's hard to tell people like the guy who called Target the other day and told Luis Arcos that he'd love to buy food from Target but can't because of the flag, then hung up, Kimberly Arcos said.
