7 Female Hairstylists Issued Same Criminal Charge As A Prostitute + $1,000 Fine For Cutting Hair In Protest Against Gov Whitmer’s Job-Killing Shutdown…NOW Their Licenses Are Being Threatened
When it became clear to the Michigan Conservative Coalition that Michigan’s radical governor had no intention of allowing anyone in the business of cutting or styling hair go back to work, they decided to host “Operation Haircut,” a protest against Governor Whitmer’s overreaching executive order that allowed Michigan residents to shop at big box stores, get abortions and buy weed, but not to get a haircut. The Operation Haircut event that was held in May brought hundreds of Michigan residents to the lawn of the state’s Capitol building where dozens of hairstylists offered free haircuts, as a way to protest Governor Whitmer’s extended shutdown of their industry.
Seven female hairstylists received $1,000 citations from the Michigan State Police during the event.
The criminal charge these ladies received is the equivalent of a criminal charge given to a “Common prostitute,” or ” A person who is engaged in indecent or obscene conduct in a public place.”
Earlier this month, Michigan’s Democrat Governor Whitmer stood side by side with protesters to honor the life of George Floyd and protest against police brutality in Highland Park, MI. No citations were given for protesting alongside Michigan’s radical governor.
One of the hairstylists who never had an interest in politics took part in Operation Haircut. In the video below, she explains how it made her feel patriotic to protest Governor Whitmer’s shutdown. She was also given a $1,00o citation and charged criminally for taking part in the protest.
The attorney, who’s been hired by Michigan Conservative Coalition to represent the six female hairstylists, added that all of his clients have all received notices from LARA, the state’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, explaining that they’re taking steps toward revoking their licenses.
MLive reports that Kallman found it “odd” that the state would “attempt to give the stylists criminal records” and “take away their livelihood” for cutting hair, which businesses have been allowed to do again statewide since June 15. He said state law allows hairstylists to cut hair during special events, such as the May 20 protest.
Kallman explained that the charges were made by Attorney General Dana Nessel, and not the local prosecutor. He also called out the riots that took place at the BLM protests that Governor Whitmer ignored and even took place in a public memorial for George Floyd with hundred of protesters during her lockdown.
Michigan Conservative Coalition President Rosanne Ponkowski also spoke out at the press conference, explaining how their group has started a GoFundMe account for the hairstylists to help pay their legal fees. Go HERE to contribute.
Kallman called out Democrat Governor Whitmer for her hypocrisy in actively trying to harm the female hairdressers desperate to go back to work while walking with BLM protesters two weeks ago. He added that the BLM protesters Governor Whitmer supported destroyed businesses and private property in several locations across the state, while the seven hairdressers she’s criminally prosecuting were simply trying to stand up for their right to make a living.
The MCC or Michigan Conservative Coalition needs our help to pay the legal fees of these brave hair stylists who dared to stand up to Michigan’s tyrannical governor. The MCC has started a GoFundMe account for the hairstylists to help pay their legal fees. Go HERE to contribute.
