A Staten Island Home Depot employee has been targeted with death threats after a photograph of her wearing an "America Was Never Great" hat circulated on social media. But Krystal Lake says her anti-Trump hat has a point, explaining to the Staten Island Advance, "The point of the hat was to say America needs changing and improvement. I don't think it's a positive message to say, 'Let's look to the past.'" Preach!

Apparently the photograph was taken on Sunday, and by Wednesday, Lake's friends and coworkers asked her if she'd seen the social media reaction. "Everyone kept asking me if I was on Facebook or Twitter, which I hadn't been," she said to the Advance, "and then I saw how many people were sharing [the picture] and that it was going viral. I was honestly shocked -- I didn't expect any of this to happen."

According to Lake, she only wore the hat on Sunday, and while Home Depot says that employees are not allowed to wear items showing political support, she told the Advance, "For the past two months, there have been a few people I work with wearing 'Vote for Trump' pins on their uniforms... But no one ever says anything to them."

Lake, a senior at College of Staten Island, majoring in Media Studies, revealed she received dozens of death threats so far, "I feel it offended a lot of people because a lot of Trump supporters live in Staten Island. Trump is very rash and in your face, but when someone else has a message against him, his supporters can't take the criticisms."

Naturally, these outraged Americans are freaking out on Home Depot's Facebook page, demanding that Lake be fired and claiming they'll start shopping at Lowe's. For instance, "I was just about to go to Home Depot to purchase a lawn mower and new washer and dryer for the home my wife and I just moved into. I just happened to pull out my phone and saw a post from someone. When I looked at their profile, I saw the attached image. Needless to say, I will not be buying the items from Home Depot now. I fully support people's right to free speech, but there are guidelines employees should be required to follow to present a friendly, helpful image to customers. If this is what you allow your employees to do, you should not be in business in America."

She added, "People have been saying really racist things to me and that they're going to come and find me," she said, "and that what I said is disgraceful and I hate America—but I don't hate America. I know there are a lot of opportunities here. I just wish we would worry about making America better— not 'great again.'"

Lake, who supports Bernie Sanders, plans to wear the hat again.
