Natalie told NYDaily.com just a few days after the shop opened people "drove past and threw garbage at the door."
"They literally threw trash at the door and said, 'Naughty Girls burn in hell,'" Natalie continued. "I started bawling, right there."
Some townspeople say the shop's logo, which shows a tail, brings Satanism to mind. But Tiana says she opened the shop for people who were bullied or felt out of place.
She says she hoped to give them “a place they could feel comfortable.”
“I wish they would actually get to know me because I’m not the person they think I am,” she said. “Okay, I have tattoos, and I don’t dress like the good kid that goes to church every Sunday, but I’m a good person.”
Tiana says her store is staying open even though she won a full scholarship to the Culinary Institute of America.
