Hershs-Pizza-Drinks-Takes-a-Stand-Against-Ray-Rice

 

Ever since the video was released of Ray Rice physically abusing this fiancé, the world has been up in arms about taking a stand against domestic violence. On September 8th, they posted a status on Facebook stating, “Dear Lovers of Women, Not Hitting Women, Non Violence and Just Generally Being a Good Person, Come trade your Ray Rice Ravens Jersey in for a free pizza at Hersh’s. These jerseys will save us money on toilet paper this week. #CutRayRice.” The status got thousands of likes and people are all commending this restaurant for taking a stand. The restaurant also pledged to donate $2.70, a note to Ray Rice’s number being 27, to House of Ruth – an organization for battered women – for every Jersey they collect. Like everything else in the world, even a restaurant standing up for women, there will always be critics. After receiving an excessive amount of phone calls and messages with people spewing profanity and threatening the restaurant with physical violence, Hersh’s has officially ended their Jersey trade-in.
