NJ Shop Owner Criticized for $10 Non-English Speaking Surcharge

Cutters Edge, a knife shop in Clifton, NJ is under fire after residents became offended by a sign in the shop’s window that says, “Speak English or Pay $10 Extra”.  An angry and offended online mob took to social media to call the store owner racist and 1-star the business online.  Clifton is a very diverse Middle Eastern and Latin American town and shop owner David Feinberg said frustration with people coming into his store and not speaking English led him to put up the sign.  After the backlash, he removed the sign.

Donna Rose So the money of people who don’t speak English as their first language isn’t welcome? Cool. I hope you go out of business.

Destiny Reyes Allstun Hahahahaha, you won’t be able to afford the cost of a new saw, once you are out of business.

Beatriz Perez Did you know being racist will have your store run out of business ? We offer reposts to get you to close. Thanks

Not all comments were negative, a couple of the posts were supportive of the sign.

Tony Manzlnl You have an online store so I can order things? I live on the west coast
