Hair today, gone tomorrow.
San Francisco salon owner Erica Kious said she is closing her business after the infamous visit by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Fox News reported.
“I am actually done in San Francisco and closing my doors, unfortunately,” Kious told Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night.
“I started to just get a ton of phone calls, text messages, emails, all my Yelp reviews… saying that they hope I go under and that I fail,” she told the host about her eSalon. “So just a lot of negativity towards my business.”
Kious has denied Pelosi’s accusation that she set her up after releasing a video of the speaker walking around her business bare-faced, sparking charges of hypocrisy in light of the lawmaker’s frequent calls to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously.
The owner has said she rents out chairs to independent stylists and claimed she did not leak the video for “political” reasons.
Meanwhile, the single mother of two has announced that her fundraiser has reached its goal of $300,000.
On Wednesday night, Kious said all the negativity has made her hesitant to return to the city, where she has lived for 15 years.
“I’m actually afraid to go back… It’s a little scary and sad,” she told Carlson. “I do have a lot of positive calls and text messages from clients. But other than that, nothing but negativity.”
