Belle’s Smoking BBQ let out a statement saying, “Belle’s Smoking BBQ apologizes if we have offended any groups, organizations or individuals with our shirts”…..”We respect all beliefs and lifestyles and want no ill will towards anyone. We know each person has their thoughts and beliefs, but we are hurt that the people who are saying, ‘stop the hate’ are the ones coming at us with the harassing messages and threatening phone calls. Again we apologize for any hurt feelings and thank our supporters who genuinely know us.”
