People are idiots if they thought this salon was actually connected to ISIS.

I mean really, do some people actually think ISIS would put their name in the title of their salon in order to stay under cover?

Actually, I've never even seen Archer. But that's great that my post works on multiple levels.

Who the fuck would mistake a goddamn nail salon would have connections to a fucking terrorist organization and of all things announce it to the public.


Oh my god. I agree with megahobbit on something. This must be a sign of the apocalypse.

The terrorists have won in Queens — where the owner of a salon dubbed “Isis Nails” was forced to change the name after it drew harassment from people who thought the shop was connected to the infamous Islamic State terror group.

Charlene Tse says she finally caved last week and decided to rename her business “Bess Nails and Spa” after she received relentless phone calls and visits from folks who thought her salon was a cover for waging jihad.


On numerous occasions, one guy in particular would even prank-call and ask, “Are you ISIS, can I join?” Tse said.


What if tomorrow a new group called AiYumega started beheading people in the name of something, I'd have to change my name.


I say don't give in.

I realize I put store in the title. It's a salon. My mistake.


ISIS are name thieves

Do you want to pay 7,000 bucks to change a single sign?

I can dream, right?


Yes it is respectable to have dreams and goals, but not at the cost of a poor lady being threaten over something so childish her Nail Salon's name.


Do you not understand some how that the person your responding to does NOT want the sign changed????
So why would you ask if they want to pay 7k to change it???? Was the image with the caption to hard
to understand????

When in business you have to cater to people for their money and not to crusade against their irrational fears.

I think it'd be better to blame the media since ISIS isn't even their name, but just a english acronym the media uses to describe the group. they're also known as ISIL, Takfiri, Daesh, Islamic State, Da'ish, ect....

It just goes to show that people can be manipulated once you label something even if it's an incorrect label, and there many who profit GREATLY from this manipulation (i.e. media outlets)

here is a comment that acuratley breaks down the topic from an economists article linked here :

http://www.economist.com/blogs/economist-explains/2014/09/economist-explains-19




Referring to the group as Islamic State is a huge propaganda coup for these monsters, and will only draw in more simpletons who think that this is actually the reformation of the caliphate rather than some lunatic khawarijis. It perpetuates a dim Huntington "Clash of Civilizations" narrative, and minimizes the suffering of Muslims at the hands of Daash. It's even inconsistent in terms of accuracy - the Economist doesn't refer to Taiwan as "The Republic of China", yet it refers to Daash as "Islamic State".

Daash is accurate, pithy, and liberal. It's the term the Economist should be using.

Those people are stupid for thinking a hair salon that's always been called ISIS is connected with muslim terrorists. However I can understand why it might be best to change the name. It's like seeing people wearing Anonymous masks. They might not actually be members of Anonymous but it would certainly make you feel comfortable.
