A Flower Shop In Roseville Gets Bombarded With Hate After Being Mistaken For A Shop With The Same Name Owned By Capitol Rioter

A flower shop in Roseville has been thrusted into a war of words that was never about them in the first place.

Becky’s Flowers is receiving a lot of hate messages for someone in Midland, Texas who has been accused of taking part in the Capitol riots.

Those messages were meant for  Jenny Cudd. who also owns an entirely separate Becky’s Flowers in Midland.

Cudd was arrested Wednesday and charged with a misdemeanor accused of taking part in the Capitol riots.

Roseville assistant manager Kali Mitchell described the stress of simply answering the telephone.

“I said, ‘Becky’s Flowers how can I help you?’ And it was immediately met with, ‘Are you the b**** that stormed the Capitol?’” said Mitchell.

Shop owner Aaron Alberti has even said that their shops online reviews have taken a drastic hit. What started with one one-star review trickled down to a large number of fake reviews.

“When I woke up Google had removed all of them. So now she has a five-star rating, nobody can leave any reviews for her but they can still do it to us,” said Alberti.

The shop has since gone on to issue a statement to customers on its website:

“ATTENTION: Our shop has NOTHING to do with the Becky’s Flowers in Midland, TX or any affiliation with Jenny Cudd. Our shop is in California. We did NOT storm the Capitol Building.”
