Suzanne Monk and her husband Alexander Duvel, who own 'Worlds of Music Chicago' have said that next month their shop will close its doors after receiving a tirade of hate online



Support for the current president of the United States forced two Chicago music store owners to close their business because of threats and negative publicity they were receiving.

Suzzanne Monk and Alexander Duvel own “Worlds of Music Chicago” but will be shuttering their brick-and-mortar business in April because of extenuating circumstances, they told “Fox & Friends Weekend.”



 Suzzanne Monk also wrote a letter to editor of a Chicago business news the reason why they are shutting down their store:

‘Two choices for Trump supporters in Chicago: Be silent or be bullied’

So, after 25 years, after a lifetime for my husband, we have to leave. In the end, it wasn’t the high taxes, constant road construction or high crime. It wasn’t the unchecked gang violence or political cronyism. In the end, we have to leave because of the hate you are willing to tolerate.

I’d like to say, it’s not you, it’s me—but Chicago, I’ve got to be honest . . . it’s you. You’ve changed. You are no longer the nose-to-the-grindstone hardworking Democratic City of the Big Shoulders. You have a Trump-sized chip on that big shoulder, and it has turned you into a city of fear, hate and division. A city that encourages political bullying.
