Trump Travel Ban Supporters Try to #BoycottHawaii -- and Get Shut Down by Twitter
First there was Hamilton. Then Starbucks and Nordstrom. And now Trump supporters have decided to boycott an entire state.
Fans of President Donald Trump have started a #BoycottHawaii movement on Twitter after a federal judge in the Aloha State blocked another attempt by the Trump administration to reinstate the travel ban barring anyone from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
But similar to how the Nordstrom fiasco resulted in a slew of celebrity shopping sprees and a boost for the retailers’ stock, Trump supporters’ best efforts seem to have been foiled again as the #BoycottHawaii hashtag was flooded with clever clap-backs on Thursday.

Even Twitter itself had jokes, describing the trending hashtag thusly: “Travel ban supporters want to boycott Hawaii and Hawaii seems pretty okay with it.”
