Even if I ate chicken sandwiches — which I don’t — I’m sure I could find a better place to get them than Chick-fil-A. Like, say, a Hardee’s dumpster. Or a the beak of a seagull in a Walmart parking lot.
Because, well, fuck them.
Thankfully, I’m not the only one who feels that way.
The city of San Antonio has had enough of the anti-LGBTQ fast-food joint, and they’re taking a stand … by taking away a chicken stand.
The San Antonio City Council, on a 6-4 vote, removed a planned Chick-fil-A location from an airport concession agreement on Thursday, after a councilman flagged the company’s anti-LGBTQ activity.
Local media reported that the move followed a ThinkProgress report on Wednesday which noted the company’s foundation gave $1.8 million in 2017 to tax exempt groups with anti-LGBTQ records.
The council was considering a seven-year concession agreement for the San Antonio International Airport with Paradies Lagardère, a travel retail company. The agreement, which was up for approval at Thursday’s meeting, originally included 985 square feet for a Chick-fil-A location. District 1 Councilman Roberto Treviño successfully proposed an amendment to remove the controversial company from the agreement and the amended version was adopted. He specifically cited Chick-fil-A’s anti-LGBTQ record as the reason for the amendment.
Good for you, San Antonio. Let’s see more of this. There’s just no room left in this world for homophobic poultry.
