In a new video, the founder-owner of Just Joel's has urged viewers to avoid the "haters" and to avoid all the negativity on Facebook.

Joel Watson posts a brief video on his page

According to court documents, and information that has been published in the Tri-City Herald, as well as local TV stations, the owner of Just Joel's will be facing a July 12th court date in Franklin County to answer to a 2nd Degree Assault Domestic Violence charge, a Class B felony.

The charge stems from an alleged December 2021 argument between Watson and his girlfriend, according to police, court, and media reports.  Those details can be found by clicking here.

Video urges people to avoid the "haters" and negativity

Watson urged his "friends and family" to "not interact with all this negativity on Facebook."  He referenced he has a lawyer, and said he found out about his court date through "the Tri-City Herald."

He said that he cannot say much about the case. He urged people to let the "haters say what they're gonna say, you can't stop a hater."

The tone of the video is upbeat and positive, and for those that have seen video postings by Watson in the past, this one is in his typical style. He also thanked people for their love and support.
