If you have enjoyed Katie’s Ice Cream and found what we do here in Downtown Dickson a positive influence on the community, please know we are grateful for your support and we are sorry to bring these negative occurrences to your attention. Sadly, we are currently defending a campaign to destroy the owner’s reputation as well the reputation of the family business, Katie’s Ice Cream and we are asking for help.
As you may know, we operate and manage our business with the philosophy and core belief that every human being is a child of God worthy of respect and dignity. If you have been here, you know when you walk through our doors you are welcomed and treated like the valued person you are. There are some saying that we have not treated everyone equally or respectfully and less importantly, saying our place of business in unclean or unhealthy. These are false claims meant to destroy our business. Why? We can’t be sure but most of the hate directed our way appears to be from those with a political or anti-religious agenda.
We have incurred and we have documented physical property damage such as the storefront window that was shot out on Mother’s Day and as such, we take social media posts that suggest we’re bigots, racists, etc. and then say *Brick through the window* VERY seriously. The damage to a business reputation and it’s customer ratings are just as destructive as the physical damage. Those who allow these hateful posts and destructive threats to occur have legal liability not unlike the person who falsely yells “FIRE!” in a crowded theater. With many poorly moderated threads, thousands of fake and anonymous accounts, we hope the responsible parties take their role as moderators more seriously and immediately remove false and misleading attacks on businesses and individuals.
We have received threats of violence, threats of property damage along with slanderous accusations. We understand how dangerous these times are for you and your family to get involved in the cancel culture war but we ask if you could, please send any screenshots or evidence for the purpose of making a case against those who administer and moderate private and public groups on social media (such as Hip Dickson County on Facebook). We have made the decision to not be members of HIP DICKSON COUNTY and will no longer monitor, view or post on that group and we will continue to delete inappropriate content and comments from our FB page and block those who threaten, harass and lie about our family and our products.
