Cosmetics retailer Lush has issued an apology to this family dairy farm after their 17-year-old son was reportedly asked to leave a Grand Rapids, Michigan, store.
The incident has been trending on social media since farm mom Leslie Van Houten Parrish shared this post on Facebook on May 19.
In a two-paragraph statement, the company apologized to the family and affirmed its support for farmers.
Known for their 100 percent vegetarian products and stance against animal testing, the retailer also apologized for comments that might be interpreted as critical of farming.
“Farmers sustain us as people, and also as a business, and we’re truly sorry that any statements made in our shop implied otherwise. Farmers are an integral part of our society, lives, economy, and our business at Lush.”
After all … Parrish’s son said it best to the Lush store clerk: “I farm you eat!”
