(He was later arrested and is still awaiting trial for violent and disorderly conduct and knowingly entering a restricted building.) Two days after the event, Pit Viper responded to that association with a Facebook post to the brand’s 241,000 followers that simply read, ‘Fuck terrorists. Fuck fascists. Fuck racists. If you’re not down with that, fuck off.’”
