Dallas hair salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced Tuesday to seven days in jail and fined $7,000 for opening her business Salon a la Mode to customers last week in defiance of COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus lockdown orders. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is allowing hair salons to reopen this Friday, but a defiant Luther would not commit to closing her shop until then.

“I have to disagree with you, sir, when you say that I'm selfish because feeding my kids is not selfish,” Luther told the judge. “I have hairstylists that are going hungry because they would rather feed their kids. So, sir, if you think the law is more important than kids getting fed, then please go ahead with your decision. But I am not going to shut the salon.”
What an amazing woman. #ShelleyLuther— Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) May 6, 2020
Opened her salon to try to earn money to feed her kids. Judge tried to make her admit she was selfish. She took jail time instead.

This is Eric Moye. Vile excuse for a man.

I spoke to Shelley Luther, owner of "Salon a La Mode" in Dallas, TX about why she's reopening DESPITE city orders: "If we don't take back our civil liberties right now, I don't know when we ever can." pic.twitter.com/LU8NZflXJy— Glenn Beck (@glennbeck) April 27, 2020
"No, I'm NOT closing." Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther refuses to close her business, even in the face of numerous government threats, fines and NOW the possibility of jail time--and she's still NOT backing down. pic.twitter.com/PjUH1TQT1Z— Glenn Beck (@glennbeck) April 30, 2020
