Anonymous, Others Threaten to Boycott Fort Lauderdale Because of Homeless Laws

Underneath a beautiful photo of seashells on the beach with a sunrise-splattered ocean in the background, angry comments are spewed all over the "Visit Fort Lauderdale" Facebook page.

"Feel free to add my name to the rapidly growing list of those who will not visit due to your Mayor arresting the gentleman who was feeding the homeless."

"After what you did to that man feeding the homeless, I wouldn't visit Fort Lauderdale if it were the last place on earth."
