From the WJZ Channel 13 news report:
In her defense, Café Hon owner Denise Whiting said: “I do not own the word ‘Hon.’”
The usually perky Whiting–obviously affected by the protesters—said they’re misinformed about the basics of business branding.
“I’m a very hard working entrepreneur,” Whiting said. “I love Hampden, and I love Baltimore, and I’ve spent a lot of time and energy doing whatever I can positive for this city.”
The manager of the Hontown Gift Shop also creates Hon Christmas ornaments.
“Quite frankly, I think it’s sad,” said Debbie Howard, manager of Hontown. “I think she’s done everything to support the word Hon, the culture of Hon. She supports local artists. She’s a wonderful person, and we love her.”
