An Ohio photographer is being praised
online after shutting down a client...
who tried to terminate her contract over her support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Shakira Rochelle, a Cincinnati-area wedding and birth photographer, received a text message from a bride-to-be on June 15...
expressing anger over
Rochelle’s personal social
media posts supporting BLM.
In the text message, the bride requested a refund on her deposit.
In response, Rochelle explained
that “unfortunately,” there
was nothing she could do.
as the contract the couple
signed was nonrefundable.
The bride simply replied, “you will be hearing from our attorney”.
In an interview with local news station WXIX, Rochelle said she has been overwhelmed
by the mostly positive reaction...
she has received following the incident, including nearly 100,000 likes on her business’s Facebook page and tons of positive reviews.
“I lost a day of work,” she added. “It doesn’t even begin to compare to what our friends...
and our people of color go through every day just waking up”
