BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (NEWS 13)  – A Brevard County business owner is facing backlash on social media for a worker’s comments to a customer about the presidential election.

“Every time something happens with a police officer, or something happens with the community, I right away put something up on the reader board to let people know,” said Joe Rodriguez, whose family owns several McDonald’s restaurants on the Space Coast.

He and his family like to support law enforcement, and each time an officer dies in the line of duty, their name goes up on store marquees, and the stores lower American flags to half staff.
