Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonitization. We can get by and survive, but we could really use your help.

Last year we published this blog about Dacosta’s Pizza in Worcester challenging the Turtlegram’s “food critic” on Facebook about a bad review he gave for the pizza. Dacosta’s is a specialty pizza place that makes smaller pies with better ingredients, cooked in brick ovens. It’s not your typical greasy Greek Worcester pizza.
Some might call this “unprofessional” on Dacosta’s part, but what does that even mean? Professionalism in business is overrated. The goal of any business is to make money, and if Dacosta’s feels that firing back at douchebags on social media is how they get there, then more power to them.
Well, Dacosta’s was the talk of the town this week because for a while now they’ve had Bruce Jenner and Caitlin Jenner hanging above their respective bathroom doors. Get it? Because Bruce is a dude, and Caitlin is a chick. It’s completely accurate when you think about it. When Bruce Jenner was a dude he went in the guy’s bathroom, and when he was a chick he went in the girl’s bathroom. It’s one of the most harmless jokes you can ever make, so naturally some SJW freaked out about it:
First of all, “post” and “prior” transition means, “Before and after he put on a dress and legally changed his name.” There was no actual transition. Just a change of wardrobe.
Secondly, when did people get the idea that what you happen to be offended by should affect the behavior of others? The idea that you can force people to take something down simply because you because you don’t like it makes you a terrible person.
Thirdly, trans rights, just like everything, is fair game for satire. Because everything is a joke. There is nothing that should be off limits when it comes to humor. That’s how comedy works. I respected Pete Davidson’s right to offend last week on Saturday Night Live, and I respect Dacosta’s right to offend as well.
Fourthly, these signs “will not be tolerated in this city?” Who the hell are you? He can put up whatever sing he wants to and if you don’t like it you don’t have to go there. Don’t let the rainbow socks fool you Angie – you are an actual, real life Nazi when you speak like that.
Dacosta’s became aware of this post and commented underneath it with more harmless satire.
He’s not mocking the “gay community” or anyone for that matter. He’s making light of a well known celebrity who was in the news. Remember when people could have fun without getting permission form the outrage patrol? Transgender people are not part of the “gay community” because they’re not gay. They’re dudes who think they’re chicks. FACKS.
Dacosta’s comments obviously didn’t go over well because people who are perpetually outraged will always find something to be upset about.
“Google review will help let people know….”
Bitch, you didn’t even eat there, but you’re willing to make a fraudulent review that can harm their business because they didn’t conform to your boring, non-existent sense of humor. This is why you can’t play nice with these people. Their goal is to hurt you economically and make it impossible for you to care for your family. Everyone who participates in this is attacking free speech and is a threat to our way of life. Burn them to the ground. Find out where they work. Call and harass them there to see how much they like it. You have to fight fire with fire. These people don’t get to win.
Quick, someone call the Huffington Post!!
If your gut reaction is to not only link the Huffington Post, but to encourage people to use them as a weapon against a business you don’t like, you suck at life.
Her post set off a flurry of other virtue signaling SJWs who left negative reviews at a place they never ate before.
Apparently telling people you’d like a pepperoni pizza is “tripling down on transphobia” now too. Since Christina likes to leave bad reviews and hurt businesses she’s never been to before based on things they post on social media, it would be a damn shame if someone did that to her employer. According to her Facebook she works for Gradifi, a Boston financial services company. Whatever you do, DO NOT flood Gradifi’s Facebook page with one star reviews because they employ a hateful, bigoted racist like Christina Aiello!!
I figured Dacosta’s would defend the wall, since that seems to be what they’re all about, but I have to say that I was disappointed when they posted this last night in response:
Come on man……this is just sad.
On the one hand I get why they did it. They’re worried about what this mob would do to their business. But at the same time I’m writing this blog to let Dacosta’s know that we support you, I’m getting Dacosta’s in the very near future, and we outnumber them. These people were never coming to your business in the first place. Facebook and Twitter are not real life. These people spend all day virtue signaling on social media by putting other people down in order to prop themselves up. It’s the only thing they know how to do.
The biggest reason you should never, ever, EVER apologize to mob of SJWs, is that it will never be good enough. They have no intention of getting along or finding common ground. Their goal is to destroy everyone they don’t agree with. The quicker you realize that the better. And of course this was proven to be true by the reaction:
Hey Marty, you live in Minnesota and the last thing you need right now is dough and ricotta cheese.
If I owned a restaurant you would’ve banned already.
It was just getting started though….
See? It’s never enough. It’s not good enough that he got on his knees and basically groveled to them. Now they’re demanding that Dacosta’s police the comments section to censor anyone who thinks that a harmless bathroom sign is OK for a private business to have.
According to this beluga beefcake harmless bathroom signs at Dacosta’s lead to “explosive violence against trans folks.” And she even has a link from USA Today, the free newspaper you get at the Holiday Inn, to prove it.
There were so many of them…..
Finally there was this thing:
You ever notice the trend that these perpetually miserable human beings are the same people who are angry because they never got invited to the prom? Turtle riders are happy and carefree largely because they’re so physically attractive. I feel bad that these people are so miserable, largely because they get up every day and hate what they see in the mirror. Must be rough. Here’s what Hopeless Conklin had to say…..
Translation – by not deleting opinions and comments supporting your business, on YOUR PAGE, it means you hate gay people.
The bottom line is, Dacosta’s would be the perfect advertiser with Turtleboy. These are the kind of businesses we do best with. People already hate us for telling the truth, and they know they can’t stop us so they go after our advertisers. The only kind of businesses that are cut out to advertise with us are those who are owned by people who aren’t afraid of a virtue signaling Facebook mob from Minnesota. People like Shiva and Garieri Jewelers. I hope they put the sign back up once they realize what a mistake it was to apologize to these worthless slugrakes.
