(CNN)A Mexican restaurant in a small town in Iowa has wrapped itself in the middle of political discourse after some customers of the popular eatery took offense to a yard sign the owner placed outside.

The sign advocated equality and social justice, but some found it too politically correct and wrote letters to the owner, Alfonso Medina.

Instead of taking it down, Medina placed a much bigger one using only four words and accidentally started a movement about love, tacos and politics.

"I just meant to respond with good humor," said Medina, owner of La Carreta Mexican Grill.

But things got interesting in August, when Medina placed a small black sign with rainbow letters at the entrance of the parking lot that said: "We Believe Black lives matter, No human is illegal, Science is real, Women's rights are human rights," and a few other things.

Whoever wrote the letter said they only saw the sign after leaving the restaurant, spending more than $100 and leaving a "generous tip. "

He said he stood by his sign and the letters only encourage him to keep going.
