Woman’s Facebook Complaint About Hobby Lobby Causes Cotton Controversy
Daniell Rider of Killeen, TX took to her Facebook page to register a complaint against décor found in a local Hobby Lobby.

Replying to Rider's post, Terri Durand said, "Back in the day BEFORE combines....there were many different ethnicities picking cotton. Not all were slaves. My grandparents were sharecroppers and they picked cotton, their children picked cotton, and when finished they helped their neighbors pick cotton. Get the facts straight!"
Alesha Field chimed in saying, "Are you being for real... check your closet my dear... how many shirts do you have that are made of cotton... go on, go check, I'll wait."
