A popular Brooklyn brewery is making headlines Friday over comments made on Twitter comparing the city's vaccine mandate to policies that once existed in Nazi Germany.
Threes Brewing co-founder and CEO Josh Stylman made the comments on Twitter and even compared the mandates to the segregation under Jim Crow laws.
The tweet read, "Vaccine mandates are a crime against humanity. If you are not speaking out against them, you are a conspirator." In a follow-up tweet, Stylman compared mandates to life in Nazi Germany, the Jim Crow south, Stalinism and more.
The tweets have been deleted, and the company issued a statement saying in part that they don't stand by Stylman's comparisons of the mandates to historic atrocities.
Some Brooklyn residents say they will boycott the brewery, calling the comments disrespectful.
