Twitter CEO Gives In to LGBT Backlash, Apologizes for Eating Chick-Fil-A

According to some liberals, eating Chick-Fil-A is controversial. Welcome to 2018.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey gave in to the liberal backlash after he posted a picture on Twitter showing his purchase from Chick-Fil-A.

Many liberals were unhappy to see the Twitter CEO supporting a company who advocates for traditional marriage values.

Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien expressed her discomfort, suggesting it's inappropriate to support Chick-Fil-A during pride month.

Dorsey’s response?

“You’re right,” he tweeted. “Completely forgot about their background.”

Even Senator Marco Rubio shared his thoughts, warning of the future that lies ahead if people continue to give in to the "twitter mob."

Julio Rosas of the Independent Journal Review pointed out that Chick-Fil-A’s “background” is nothing to be ashamed of, citing their service after the Orlando shooting at a gay club.

Yet, still, liberals insist that Chick-Fil-A is hateful for its support for traditional marriage.

David French addressed this idea last week in response the story of a CrossFit employee who was fired for his religious views.

What qualifies an external critic to define the veracity of a man’s faith or the purity of the thoughts in his heart? There seems to be a mistaken belief by some that sexual orientation is absolutely core to a person’s identity whereas religion is something else entirely — so superficial that any given person is one Vox explainer or Bill Maher monologue away from enlightenment.

Attacking a company because of their religious views is a poor look. And as we saw in the decision of the Masterpiece Cakeshop case last week, it’s a losing cause. If liberals are actually interested in finding a middle ground on LGBT issues, they should quit labeling a common, and what should be a protected, religious view as “bigoted.”
