Fourteen-year-old Alexander isn't old enough vote but his support for Donald Trump triggered a nasty response from a San Francisco business.

Fourteen-year-old Alexander isn't old enough vote but his support for Donald Trump triggered a nasty response from a San Francisco business.

He posted a video on YouTube of a custom shirt he had made at Bang-On T-Shirts on Haight Street.

On the outside, it says Trump. But on the inside, there was something more.

"So, on further inspection on the inside, they left a little note," Alexander said. It was the f-word.

"They look kind of confused and shocked because I want Trump on it. And the coworker comes over and reads, Trump in a disgusted voice," Alexander said.

He called the store to complain and then posted videos online urging viewers to hit the company where it hurts - on Yelp.

Right now, Bang-On is barely hanging on to 2 stars.

ABC7 sister station KGO-TV in San Francisco stopped by the store to get their side of the story but it was closed for the Fourth of July holiday.

The head office did post an apology on the company's Facebook page.

It read in part: "We, at Bang-On Custom T-Shirts, would like to apologize for our previous employees actions at our San Francisco location. Their actions and opinions in no way reflect our training or policies. We have since terminated this employee."

Alexander said a manager called him and gave him a refund. And, he's keeping the shirt.
