Brewery co-founder’s Twitter comments comparing vaccine mandate to Nazi Germany draw criticism

A popular Brooklyn brewery is making headlines Friday over comments made on Twitter comparing the city’s vaccination mandate to policies that once existed in Nazi Germany.

Threes Brewing co-founder and CEO Josh Stylman made the comments on Twitter and even likened the mandates to segregation under Jim Crow laws.

The tweet read, “Vaccination mandates are a crime against humanity. If you don’t speak out against them, you’re a conspirator.” In a follow-up tweet, Stylman compared the warrants to life in Nazi Germany, the Jim Crow South, Stalinism and more.

The tweets were deleted and the company issued a statement saying in part that it does not respect Stylman’s comparisons between warrants and historical atrocities.

Some Brooklyn residents say they will boycott the brewery, calling the comments disrespectful.
