Group Boycotts Teens' Donut Shop Over 'Controversial' Name; Is It Appropriate?

A group in Virginia is threatening to boycott a local teenage girl’s dream donut shop because of its “controversial” name – the Naughty Girls Donut Shop.

The shop is the result of the hard work and perseverance of 16-year-old Tiana Ramos and her mother Natalie Ramos, as well as the pair’s creativity in baking and design, according to PRWeb.

Naughty Girls Donut Shop opened for business a few months ago, according to WSLS 10. Inside the bakery, employees serve fresh-baked donuts in styles from the past, since the Ramoses have a particular love for pin-up girls from the 1940s. Posters of celebrity figures such as Marilyn Monroe hang along the stores walls, and there is a theme of pink and red throughout.

Despite the fun atmosphere that the mother and daughter team have tried to create at the shop, a Conservative Alliance group in the area has reportedly said they plan to boycott the shop due to its name.

Still, Tiana and Natalie Ramos have said that the name is a reflection of the attitudes of pin-up girl and the idea of eating sweets even though people know they shouldn’t have too much dessert.

Tiana works before and after school and on the weekends at the donut shop because she loves the business. Natalie Ramos has said that she is disappointed that other community members are criticizing and threatening her daughter’s dream store.
