Stephanie Wilkinson: Full Story Of Red Hen Co-Owner Resigning

Stephanie Wilkinson has stepped down. Wilkinson, who is the co-owner of The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, has decided to resign as executive director of Main Street Lexington, a volunteer-based organization that helps promote the city.
The move was announced on Tuesday, June 25.
“Considering the events of the past weekend, Stephanie felt it best, that for the continued success of Main Street Lexington, she should step aside,” Elizabeth Outland Branner, Board President of Main Street Lexington, said in a statement, via WDBJ7.
The resignation comes in the aftermath of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claiming she was refused service and asked to leave the restaurant because of her affiliation to Donald Trump.
“I was babbling a little, but I got my point across in a polite and direct fashion. I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation.” “I said, ‘I’d like to ask you to leave,'” Wilkinson claims to have told Sanders during the incident, via PEOPLE. “I’m not a huge fan of confrontation. I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.”
Sanders reportedly left the restaurant without making a scene.
Since the alleged incident, there have been some lawmakers like Maxine Waters who have encouraged people to harass members of the Trump administration out in public, but those comments have been condemned by a number of prominent Congress members and leaders in the Democratic Party.
