June 11, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The head of Twitter apologized over the weekend for having dinner at Chick-fil-A as a private citizen, in response to liberal outrage over the restaurant chain’s Christian values.
On Saturday evening, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted a screenshot showing he had eaten at a Los Angeles Chick-fil-a location:
Chick-fil-a is famously operated on the Christian principles of its national leadership, including closing on Sundays, listing “to glorify God” as part of its corporate purpose, and its active charitable arm. In recent years, liberals have attempted to boycott the chain due to CEO Dan Cathy’s stated opposition to same-sex “marriage” and the company’s donations to social conservative groups such as Family Research Council and Focus on the Family.
Many homosexual employees and customers have testified that Chick-fil-A’s principles have never translated to mistreating them, and the protests have failed to stem the company’s popularity or expansion. Nevertheless, a variety of left-wing pundits, artists, and others pounced on Dorsey for boosting Chick-fil-A during LGBT “Pride Month”:
Other followers agreed with his original tweet and defended Dorsey’s decision to frequent the chain, but on Sunday the CEO apologized, saying he had “completely forgot[ten] about their background”:
In April, Dorsey endorsed as a “great read” an article declaring that the Republican Party were “the bad guys on the wrong side of history” akin to the slaveholding South, who must be “beaten, and badly” by a Democratic supermajority that must dominate American politics for at least a generation.
