Supporters of President Donald Trump are furious after a hotel in Washington D.C. canceled their reservations en masse ahead of a pro-Trump demonstration scheduled for January 6th.

As The Daily Beast's Will Sommer reports, the Hotel Harrington sent out a notice on Monday night announcing that it will be closed on January 4th through January 6th in a move intended to "protect the safety of our visitors, guests, and employees."

Hotel Harrington has become a favorite D.C. haunt of the Proud Boys, a far-right gang of Trump supporters who vowed to show up in the streets on January 6th to protest the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Per Sommer, many Trump supporters subsequently took to pro-Trump social media website The Donald to rip into the hotel for canceling their reservations.

"HOTEL HARRINGTON GOT CUCKED BY A BUNCH OF LOSER LIBERALS," wrote one poster. "HOTEL HARRINGTON HAS NO BACKBONE!"

"F*CK HOTEL HARRINGTON," wrote another. "THEY CANCELED OUR ROOMS... THEN WE'LL CANCEL THEIR BUSINESS. NOBODY BOOK WITH THEM, THEY WILL F*CK YOU OVER!!!"

"Hotel Harrington CANCELLED my reservation," wrote another disgruntled Trump fan. "F*CK THESE COWARDS!!!! I gave this lady an earful and the hotel GM as well."
