Tourism officials among those unfazed by viral hashtag #BoycottHawaii


DASH: IT’S A HASHTAG THAT’S NOW TRENDING ON TWITTER … IN RESPONSE TO A HAWAII JUDGE BLOCKING PRESIDENT TRUMP’S TRAVEL BAN YESTERDAY. AND THE COMMENTS .. HAVE BEEN RUTHLESS MANY ON THE MAINLAND HAVE BEEN ASKING PEOPLE NOT TO SUPPORT HAWAII BECAUSE OF THE JUDGE’S DECISION … BUT THE REBELLION .. QUICKLY BACKFIRED. MANOLO MORALES HAS BEEN FOLLOWING THIS STORY AND JOINS US NOW WITH MORE. MANOLO? MANOLO: HAWAII TOURISM AUTHORITY. BUT THE CHAIRMAN TELLS ME IT’S NOT ALARMING AT ALL. AFTER YESTERDAY’S RULING BY A FEDERAL TRAVEL BAN, THE TWITTER FEED HASHTAG BOYCOTT HAWAII STARTED TRENDING TODAY. THERE WERE PEOPLE AND WILL GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. BUT THEN LOTS OF OTHERS COUNTERED WITH TWEETS SAYING THAT LEAVES MORE ROOM ON THE BEACH FOR THEM. THE IRONY HERE IS THAT THE STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CHALLENGED THE TRAVEL BAN BECAUSE IT COULD HURT TOURISM. SO NOW THAT THE COURT ORDER HAS THE BAN ON HOLD WILL TOURISM STILL BE HURT IN ANY WAY? THE CHAIRMAN OF THE HAWAII TOURISM rick Fried, Hawaii Tourism to express their opinion we don’t think people that are at all thoughtful and like to come to Hawaii for the things that we offer will be Rick: “I think it will have no effect I think the fact that we took the right position in my view if anything will keep getting brought up more and more and I think it could in the long run affect us positively.” FRIED TELLS ME THAT HE BELIEVES IT’S MORE LIKELY THAT PEOPLE WILL DECIDE MANOLO: SAID BOYCOTT HAWAII IS THE DUMBEST THING ON THE INTERNET, HASHTAG E KOMO MAI. MANOLO MORALES KHON2 NEWS.
