The Stella Luna Gelato Cafe in Ottawa was forced to close on Tuesday after the owner was threatened by a mob inspired by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The closure occurred after angry leftists discovered she had donated to the Freedom Convoy via a malicious hack that was made public.
When Tammy Giuliani donated to the Freedom Convoy she never imagined it would result in her having to shutter her beloved business.
Giuliani at first saw the protest as a beacon of hope for small businesses across the country that have been decimated by COVID restrictions.
"When a group of people first decided they were going to travel across the country to spread this message of solidarity, it seemed like a beacon of hope for small businesses like us," Giuliani told the Ottawa Citizen.
"It's no surprise that small businesses have been on the edge. Families are at risk of losing their livelihood. I'm a sucker for a grassroots cause."
"Never in our wildest dreams did we anticipate what has transpired over the past couple of weeks," she said,.
"None of us anticipated what it turned into and we certainly don't condone it," Giuliani added after Trudeau enacted emergency measures in response to the peaceful freedom protests.
“In retrospect it was bad judgment, but does that mean that people have a right to threaten our staff? Does it mean people have the right to threaten to throw bricks though our window and to threaten my family? We made a mistake. Who could have anticipated it?," Giuliani said after the public struggle sessions began.
According to the Citizen, on February 5, Tammy Giuliani donated to the workers’ protest and wrote, "Now I’m giving you $250 and taking food down to the truckers every day. Thank you for continuing to fight for Canadians across this country."
The donation was made public after a far-left journalist posted the GiveSendGo list on Twitter. After the list was posted, her staff began to receive threats.
"We got a call from the team saying, 'We're getting phone calls here,'" Giuliani said in a phone interview Monday afternoon. "I said, 'What's going on?' and they said, 'They're threatening to throw bricks through our window. They're threatening to come and get us.' We said, 'Lock the door and we'll find out what's going on.'"
According to Ottawa Citizen, Giuliani said she closed the shop and told staff to go home for their own safety. She plans to file reports with the Ottawa Police Department.
