This weekend, a Virginia business came under fire after one of the owners posted an anti-LGBTQ+ message to social media. On Saturday morning, Cherie's Antique Emporium posted an update to its Facebook page that began as an update on the business, but devolved into anti-trans bigotry.

The store, owned by Mindel and Cherie Hall and located in Mechanicsville, near Richmond, has a history of posting controversial messages on its page, but none has gained as much attention as Saturday's post."Good morning," the post started. "It is Saturday and we are hoping for a great day.

We have lots of new furniture arriving next Tuesday as well as many other treasures...."The post then took a turn, taking aim at Lia Thomas, the 24-year-old University of Pennsylvania swimmer.
