Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey apologizes for eating a Chic-fil-A sandwich
Chick-fil-A’s slogan is “eat more chicken” — not act like one! Unfortunately, that’s exactly what Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey did after activists slammed him for posting evidence that he’d stopped by the fast-food chain. After six years, the controversy over Chick-fil-A is still sizzling — and, as we learned over the weekend, just eating there can ruffle plenty of feathers.
“You’re right,” a chastened Dorsey replied. “Completely forgot about their background.” Their “background,” of course, being that of Christian owners who believe what the Bible teaches about marriage. Back in 2012, before LGBT activists made him skittish about social issues, CEO Dan Cathy had been very open about his views. “We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that… We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”
Now, six whole years later, the head of a major social media platform is apologizing for eating a chicken sandwich! This is how out of touch the Left’s new orthodoxy is. To them, it’s a given that everyone in America thinks just like them. That no one in their right mind would even consider eating at a restaurant operated by someone who believes that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Even if that restaurant is currently ranked in the top 10 in America and is forecasted to be the third largest fast food chain by 2020.
