"A commodity which was gained at the expense of American-American slaves", she thundered.

The issue is over whether the national craft store should sell stalks of cotton to be used in fall decor.

The post has also racked up more than 175,000 comments, most of which refer to Rider's rant as "idiotic". "I will not allow (raw) cotton or statues for that matter, have any type of effect, especially a negative one, on my life".

"A little sensitivity goes a long way", she added, asking the retailer to "remove this decor".

A Killeen, Texas woman's complaint about a Hobby Lobby decoration has sparked a social media firestorm on the company's Facebook page.

"Hobby Lobby is the best hobby store around", another commented.

There are nearly 200,000 comments on the post, many of them expressing dismay that Ryder is offended by fake cotton plants. Some of the comments show support for Rider, others find the complaint "ridiculous". Several students complained about the centerpiece being offensive.

So now Hobby Lobby is under fire for selling fake cotton bc it's considered racist, but people wear cotton every.
