A Trump-supporting yogurt shop was allegedly offering discounts to customers who came into the store without wearing a mask.

Top That Frozen Yogurt in Durango, Colorado is facing backlash over a message posted Monday on Facebook that allegedly discouraged mask-wearing. It said: ’10$ off for no masks! Merica!’

The post also said that it would offer a discount to anyone customers who said ‘Happy Columbus Day,’ in an apparent pushback to the Indigenous Peoples Day movement, according to The Durango Herald.

There was also a picture posted to Twitter of a sign at the store that called out City Council member Dean Brookie on his position to encourage wearing masks in the city.

The message on the chalkboard said: ‘Your mask is as worthless as Dean Brookie.’

Colorado state law requires face coverings in indoor spaces to stop the spread of coronavirus.

San Juan Basin Public Health met with the attorney general and public health officials and released a statement on what actions would be taken in regards to the yogurt shop.

San Juan Basin Public Health said: ‘This is more serious than violating PHO (public health orders) through ignorance or lack of managerial control.

‘SJBPH is looking at all legal options available to stop Top That from willfully creating a risk to public health.’

There have been over a hundred complaints filed against the store as of Thursday, with many of them including photos of staff members and customers not wearing masks.

This is not the first time the store has mixed with politics with yogurt. It has put up Republican political signs for Donald Trump and local candidates.

The store owner did not respond to requests and as of Thursday, the store had taken down its Facebook page.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend wearing a mask to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Bryn Majid, 59, began chatting with ‘Jess’ in February this year on messenger app Kik, where he used the name ‘Copper762’.
