Liberals love to attack Chick-fil-A because the restaurant chain has always been unafraid to express their conservative Christian views. One Hollywood actor, however, just learned that going after Chick-fil-A might not be the best idea after all…
George Takei, the gay actor known for playing Hikaru Sulu on the television show Star Trek for years, recently posted a list on Facebook called “Companies You Should Avoid if You Support Gay Rights.” According to Conservative Tribune, the featured image of the list was a photo of Chick-fil-A.
Takei wrote that companies like Chick-fil-A “are free to have their own opinions, but we consumers are equally free to decide where to spend our money.” The actor was then stunned when supporters of the restaurant chain flooded his Facebook page with attacks of their own.
“If you are going as far to boycott what you consider anti-gay companies, better not buy any gasoline that comes from oil companies that was purchased in the Middle East where being gay there is a capital crime,” commenter Jason Roberts wrote.
“These companies have every right to their opinions and beliefs. Just as you do,” Judy DeLaurentiis added. “You can’t demand these rights and then try to deny rights, freedom of speech and religion, to anyone else who doesn’t agree with your views.”
“Chick-fil-A doesn’t discriminate against anyone,” she continued. “I’ve never seen anyone, ever, turned away and not served because of their sexual orientation at Chick-fil-A.”
Perhaps nobody said it better than Facebook user Chance Bunger.
“I think I’ll just enjoy my chicken sandwich and leave politics out of lunch.”
Nice try, George Takei, but I doubt you’ll be messing with Chick-fil-A again!
