Amid the recent controversy surrounding Chick-fil-A and its stance on gay marriage, Berkeley students have called for a boycott of the nearest Bay Area Chick-fil-A. Guess someone doesn’t want to eat mor chikin.
The Facebook event cites the fact that “Chick-fil-A has donated nearly $2 million to anti-LGBT groups including the Marriage & Family Foundation ($1,188,380), Exodus International ($1,000) and the Family Research Council (also $1,000)” and that “Governor Mike Huckabee has supported the chain of restaurants by creating a Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day with 160,000+ RSVPs on Facebook.”
In response to Huckabee’s Appreciation Day, to take place this Wednesday, Aug. 1, the California College Democrats are boycotting the nearest Chick-fil-A, located in Fairfield, CA.
Vegetarians and pro-gay rights activists join forces.
The cows won’t be feeling too much love in the Bay, ‘cuz the Bears are getting ready to roll in. Can you say rawr?
