Man branded ‘racist’ after opening 'Really British' store
Chris Ostwald was shocked when his store became the centre of a racism storm after it opened in Muswell Hill in London, with shoppers accusing him of making a political statement.

>Be British
>Be in Britain
>Sell British products
>Be branded racist and attacked

The tolerant, non-racist crowd was so angry with his fascist store they.. bullied his foreign assistant so hard she quit her job..

“His critics have accused him of being insensitive during a period of heightened cultural tension.”

“[…] having a big sign saying ‘Really British’ makes me feel you’re implying that other local businesses in the area are therefore somehow 'not really British’.“

“[…] you might have chosen a more inclusive name in 2016.”
