    Update on the Lynn coffeeshop whose manager vowed to never host “coffee with a cop” because cops are murderers who shouldn’t be “humanized,” only to be fired by her own mother for destroying the business…….

    Source:  Less than a week after controversial comments about police from the daughter of a Central Square coffee shop owner went viral, the one-year-old shop is closing.

    “I’ve lost my business and I’ve lost my daughter … I don’t know how this story just keeps building, but I need people to leave me alone,” said Kato Mele, owner of the White Rose Coffeehouse. “I’m closing my business so I can stop being harassed.”

    The final straw came last night, she said, when she arrived home to find a TV crew in her driveway. Last weekend, Sophie CK, Mele’s 23-year-old daughter, posted on her personal Facebook page that she would never host a “Coffee with a Cop” event at her family’s establishment. Her posting ignited a debate that got ugly when Sophie called police bullies and racist killers. The response was swift by others who defended police and said the shop should be boycotted. Mele apologized for Sophie’s remarks, fired her, and invited police to her shop on Monday to make amends. But the police did not show, and the usual morning crowd never materialized either. By Tuesday night, Mele had had enough.

    “This is completely out of control,” she said. “I just want to be left alone.”

    I’m gonna be honest, I didn’t see this one coming. I figured these people were fighters. I figured they’d victimize themselves and get a bunch of pity business from north shore SJWs. Instead they’re just throwing up the white flag and abandoning ship.

    I’m kind of torn on this one. On the one hand I do somewhat feel bad for this woman because her business closed because we exposed her idiot daughter on a blog. On the other hand, if you’re willing to just give up your business like this then it wasn’t much of a business in the first place. Obviously this woman has other income streams and she can afford to just not make money for a while here. Plus, what kind of coffeeshop isn’t open on the weekends? Doesn’t seem like a business that was built to last, especially when they hired a manager who does stuff like this:

    Just sayin. Don’t. Poke. The. Turtle.

      I have no pity. If the situation were reversed politically, these moonbats would have no sympathy for the mother of, say, a woman who publicly spoke out on some conservative issue, such as deporting illegal aliens.

      Maybe the stupid bitch (not the mother, the daughter) will stop and think now about how her asinine “social commentary” has disrupted her mother’s life and potentially ruined her business.

      If she had a conscience, of course.

      Which she doesn’t. They never do.

      This is war, people. And the only way you win a war is to have no sympathy, and take no prisoners.

        VICTORY. if only one at a time, or slowly then suddenly. they are one less cancer on the working class, and will not be allowed to metastasize like the other preachy mega coffee chain. Stunt is absolutely correct. have zero pity, simply because they have learned NOTHING, and would do it to you in a heartbeat. “i need people to leave me alone”, really??, do sophie or her mother live by this code?? or would they go on fb and vilify anyone for breaking one of THEIR politically correct codes and attempt to destroy that person’s life? losing their business is way to lenient an outcome. how about a common sentence handed out in sophie’s favorite workers paradise for being an enemy of the people? ten years digging coal in the people’s coal mines of siberia. That is equity for the people.

        1. mitch


          i can picture sophie and her mother in front of the soviet judge, about to be sentenced, but..but…we’re one of the good ones….

      2. NFL (Not For Long)


        Now lets shut down the NFL. Goodell says they are members of and in tune with our community. Any NFL players live in YOUR community? They are all millionaires and NOT even close to being in touch with OUR communities!

    2. FUCK SJWs


      This is what happens when you fuck with people on your shitty blog!

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHA JUST KIDDING! Fuck her, her daughter and her shitty coffee shop I’ve never heard of until now

      1. G00ber


        Actually, I would fuck her. I wouldn’t be proud of it but I’d give her a bounce.

        1. Mitch Thundercok


          Never a shortage of moronic knuckledraggers. Hur der hur.

        2. DarwinWasRight


          I’d suggest a body condom for you, and a ball gag for her. Something tells me that every word out of her mouth is toxic.

    3. Mark D


      “meet an ex-con”….babahahahahahahahahahahah

      what kind of fucking fantasy land does this douchebag millenial live in?

    4. 2wEntEe


      She should’ve brought a bunch of food and coffee to the police station Monday morning and Monday night.

      They would’ve posted on the LYNN PD website, thank you White Rose for all this delicious stuff. Business would’ve been booming Tuesday.

    5. Don


      Payback is a bitch. You spout off you need to own it. How sheltered a life do these people lead that they think everyone agrees with them? The arrogance is incredible!
      I hope their opinions keep them warm this winter when they no longer have an income to pay for heat.

    6. AngryTurtle


      Normally I am one to be out there bashing the minds of SJWs and intolerant lefty (and righty) nutbags … but in this case I kinda do feel bad. While I agree with the comment that the SJWs would be throwing a celebratory party if the roles were reversed, I would also like to think we are better than that. After all, how can we sit here and condemn them for that behavior if we ourselves are doing it? The old adage “If they can do it so can I do” doesn’t work in this case because that’s one of the biggest reasons we trash them every chance we get it…

      So what to make of this? Well, I honestly would feel bad for any business that is forced to close its’ doors for the actions of an employee, family or otherwise, especially when the ownership has tried to rectify the situation. I think the response to the issue says more than the actual issue does. A simple apology is not sufficient, but firing your own daughter and inviting the folks she alienated back personally is.

      BUT, the turtle has a point… it would seem her business model wasn’t superb to begin with; 8-3 is a 7 hour day and closed on weekends? It would seem you geared yourself for the morning rush and lunch breaks of the working folks … for a coffeeshop maybe that is a good mantra, I don’t own one nor do I visit one so I couldn’t say… but it seems to me running a business on 35 hours a week just won’t cut it; especially when you cut out Sat/Sun mornings … you are missing all the folks going out to do errands, the church goers and old folks who like Sunday morning breakfast …

      Really torn on this one …

      1. Sonny's Mom


        This blog and its readers called them out for hostility toward law enforcement while “welcoming” lawbreakers and the violent left. But the Turtle never called for shutting their business down.

    7. #hahahahahahahahaha


      These dumb shits don’t understand that politics and business do not mix well, you don’t support any candidate over the other when you run any kind of food establishment, she wasn’t smart enough to tell her daughter this, And her daughter learning this way of thinking was from her extremely left leaning mother. Her choice in businesses are a dime a dozen anyway, and since Starbucks took over that market, no good shops have been able to stay in business for more than a couple years.

    8. Don


      And by the way the fact that they quit so fast is a perfect example of what’s wrong with SJW’s. At least have the backbone to try to get past the self-induced crisis!

    9. MrSmiley


      Should be the first mother daughter headstone in the tbs graveyard. I don’t feel bad. You saw the stickers on the door, like mother like daughter. Mom is just smart enough to keep her opinions off social media.

    10. Troubled Nostrils


      Since Mom allowed the silly anti-Nazi/white nationalist signs on the front door, that tells me Mom was almost as batshit as Daughter – Mom has just been leavened with age. They brought the demise of their business on themselves.

    11. Barry


      The whole turtleboy thing is just cover for an inevitable outcome. Now they can blame their failure on mean people who support cops which actually adds to their SJW cred.

    12. John


      Unfortunately, with the closing of the shop, there is no real learning taking place by the owner / manager. The only thing they learned was not to poke the turtle.
      They did not learn how to grow a business, how to recover from a setback, how to rebuild trust once its broken, how to foster relationships between differing viewpoints. All of which, amazingly, a coffee shop is an ideal setting for.
      There are (possibly) other employees that now have no job. There is another empty storefront, not paying business taxes, another shiner on the eye of Lynn…
      Not your fault Turtle….

    13. Oh Well


      Bummer, I guess my hopes of coffee with a cunt won’t be happening anytime soon.

    14. JoeMomma


      The NFL will learn this lesson next…..

    15. Confused Turtle


      What the fuck kind of coffee shop is only open weekdays 8-3 and closed weekends? Do you just…not want to make money?

      1. Sorry NOT Sorry


        Yeah seriously! That place was doomed to begin with. Prob some rich semi retired bitch who’s husband threw money at for a “hobby” because 35 hours a week BARELY means work.

        1. JoeMomma


          I could see putting money into such a poor investment just to get her out of the house (and away from him!)

    16. Irishcurse


      Fuck her and her Coffee with a Cunt daughter. She can open another coffee shop near a college and call
      It “Safe spaces”.

    17. Georgia Madman


      I’ll bet the coffee shop was just a way to get a job for her worthless daughter. Since she “lost” the daughter, there’s no point in keeping the shop open. Sounds like the lady got rid of the money losing shop and the worthless daughter. A win-win for the lady IMO.

    18. Donald J. Trummp


      I will tell you, ALL liberal sons of b*tches shilling cheap coffee should be fired! Need to make the coffee industry great again! Sad – but we will still MAGA!

    19. Jambes Marks


      All this girl is really fit to do is work as a forklift driver and give me all her earnings. We can live together in a pool house.

      Home the SJW and bête males and their sweaters do not come to the rescue?

        How come the SJW and beta males in their sweaters do not come to the rescue?

    23. RickinGreenHarbor


      So much for Lynn’s “Downtown Renaissance”. 7 hours a day? At 8 half the people are already at work. At 3, they’re an hour or two from heading home. To quote author George V. Higgins:”Life is hard but it’s harder when you’re stupid”.

    24. Steve J


      Play stupid games win stupid prizes.

    25. some dude


      really missing the construction and tradesmen market with those hours generally the smaller shops serve coffee that has actual caffeine in it. oh well

    26. Kerrie


      I really feel bad for the business owner and people are cruel and if you dont have the people why bother she is right to close. Tjere is no fight left when your regulars dont show up. All because she has a apoiled daughter that runs her mouth about her beliefs. Well the mother fired her isnt that enough. Dont make her suffer for her daughters actions. The police should have showed up out of reapect for the mom and pop coffee shop. Showing society that we dont punish one person for another ones actions. As far as her daughter, she should never be allowed in that business again. I get that you cannot control your adult childs action. Firing her was a start but stop helping her if you are she needs to learn a hard life lesson about respect if she does not respect our law enforcement i can gaurentee you that she doesnt respect her parents either.


    27. […] there was a “Marxist” restaurant in Michigan that closed.  There was also an anti-cop coffee barista who had to close her shop as well. I’m sure if you dig you’ll find a dozen cafes, […]
