Ashland City Shell posts anti-Hillary rant

Trump That BitchA video on Facebook is blowing up in terms of views as a Shell station in Ashland City, TN posted some questionable language calling Hillary Clinton both a bitch, and a POS not a POTUS.

You can see the entire video here.

The full text in the video is:

Make America Safe Again
We need the CEO
Not The P O S
For Our President!

I reached out to Shell asking for a comment and got this back (edited only for formatting):

Hi Paul,

Shell has been made aware of a message being displayed at the station located at the corner of Old Hickory Boulevard and Ashland City Highway in Northwest Davidson County.  Shell does not condone the type of behavior alleged to have occurred and the contents of the sign do not reflect the views or opinions of Shell.

Similar to other major fuel brands, Shell retail fuels business in the U.S. primarily supplies quality motor fuels to wholesalers who operate under the Shell brand and sell Shell-branded fuels. So while the name on the sign reflects the brand of the motor fuel being sold on the premises, the convenience store and the day-to-day site operations are the legal responsibility of the wholesaler, site owner and/or operator.

Our Retail Area Manager has been alerted to investigate the matter further with the independent wholesaler that operates the site for further information and action.

Thank you,
Natalie Mazey
Shell Spokesperson

Why is theITbaby covering this? No reason, I just wanted to use my media credentials for something and hopefully have some news agency credit a baby blog as a via 🙂
