You know the best thing about the grand opening of a Chick-fil-A? You get to eat your food while watching all kinds of weird people protesting outside of its front doors.
Yeah, a whole bunch of animal activists, drag queens, and leftists accusing chickens of being transphobic gathered outside of Toronto’s first Chick-fil-A on Friday to stage what they called a “die-in” protest — as opposed to "dine-in" — hoping to make their screeching voices heard.
Protesters held signs that read “Cluck Off” and “Chick-Fil-A is Full-A Homophobia” all while chanting: "Shame! Shame! Shame!"
But their “shaming” didn’t register with anyone who desired a mouth-watering spicy chicken sandwich paired with those crispy waffle fries and a lemonade (my go-to order).
A video posted by a Twitter user shows a group of weirdos laying on the ground in front of the fast-food chain with people walking right past them to enter the facility. When will these people learn that even a looney tune protester won’t keep people from their Chick-fil-A?
“There is nothing I enjoy more about a die-in protest video than seeing people ignoring them and just walking right through,” the user tweeted. “It’s Chick-fil-A. People are going to find a way to get it, even if they have to step over hippies.”

He’s definitely not wrong.
A Chick-fil-A supporter was yelled at by protesters because he was a “cis-gendered white male” who said it was just a chicken sandwich.
“I was just with everybody else noting the hypocrisy of all these people,” the supporter said. “I believe they use all kinds of brands with ‘evil’ CEOs — Amazon, Walmart, all those kinds of things. This brand [Chick-fil-A] has done nothing to any of these people. There’s tons of LGBT and transexual people that work at Chick-fil-A’s all across the Unites States — they tell me they love their jobs so I just don’t know why we’re here to protest this brand right now.”
The funny thing is a lot of people didn’t know Toronto had a Chick-fil-A but because the protesters were so off-the-wall in their demonstrations more people found out where they’d be going when they had a desire for some delicious chicken. Funny how advertising works, eh?
