GoFundMe removed a campaign for an Alabama bar created by conservative commentator Candace Owens after text messages emerged Saturday of the bar owner calling George Floyd a “thug.”

The Parkside Cafe in Birmingham, Alabama faced backlash after the controversial texts sent by the bar’s owner Friday morning were posted to social media, according to

In a now-deleted Facebook post, an employee posted screenshots of the texts from owner Michael Dykes that said “we should go up one or two dollars on everything until June 10th. Call it a protest tax because all the idiots that went to the protests are responsible for us not being able to open normal hours.”

“Any employees that went or are still going should resign,” he said. “Mr. Floyd was a thug, didn’t deserve to die but honoring a thug is irresponsible.”
