Stoppin' Bags: Chick-fil-A Denied Contracts due to Homophobic Stance

It is a sad day, but a necessary one when you can't have Chick-fil-A's special Chick-fil-A sauce anymore or their lemonade.

Chick-fil-A has been under fire ever since 2012 when the late Founder S. Truett Cathy donated 2 million dollars to organizations that oppose same-sex marriages. Adding fuel to the fire, COO Dan T. Cathy made public comments opposing homosexuality as well. Despite the criticism, the fast food chain has continued to donate millions to notable anti-gay organizations.

In response, Chick-fil-A has faced public criticism from public figure heads such as Pete Buttigieg, the same openly gay man that is running in the 2020 presidential election.

Now it looks like the franchise is being denied in public spaces like airports. NBC reports that last week San Antonio City Council denied Chick fil-A's opening at the San Antonio Airport due to, " legacy of anti-LGBT behavior." Rider University in New Jersey also refused to open a Chick-fil-A on campus. Most recently Buffalo News lreports Buffalo Niagara International Airport cancelled plans to open Chick-fil-A at their airport due to their anti-lgbt stance. Rumor has it that Mineta San Jose Airport may be next. Seems like Chick-fil-A may want to do some reflecting and apologizing.
