Unfortunately, a grandmother by the name of Darlene Hackemer Loretto, thinking she was complimenting Mark and his company, left what one could call a "sexist" comment about her grand daughters.

The post has gotten thousands of likes and comments, and Loretto never expected the post to gain this much attention.

She stated, "I've done everything in my life MYSELF, my children's dad died at a very young age and I did it all, starting 2 businesses. I said it once to them in jest and NEVER did I think anyone would even see this, let alone get the attention it has gotten."
