KOKOMO, Ind. (WLFI) — Kokomo residents are reportedly boycotting Dan’s Bakery, also known as Dan’s Doughnut Shop.
Sources say some people were upset with the owner’s brother, who is part of the Kokomo City Council.
Donnie Haworth recently voted in favor of an anti-discrimination ordinance protecting sexual orientation for the LGBTQ community.
Dan’s Bakery owner, Brian Haworth, and other employees were unaware of any boycotting. Brian Haworth said he has no affiliation with politics or his brother’s political decisions.
“Shocked, very upset, yes. I mean, like I said, I’ve never discriminated against nobody and never have and never will,” Brian Haworth said. “We are open to anybody and everybody.”
Brian said his brother Donnie used to have partial ownership in the business, but he sold it four years ago.
