Good grief, make it stop!
Via Atlantic Wire:
Chick-fil-A is the most talked about restaurant in America right now, if you only count politicians. New York City Councillor Christine Quinn has gone a step further than saying “we don’t want you here.” Quinn’s written a letter and started a petition asking Chick-fil-A be kicked out of New York.
Earlier this week, Boston’s Mayor wrote a letter to Chick-fil-A saying he’d block them from coming to his city because of the company’s admission they have an anti-gay stance. (He’s since admitted he couldn’t do that.) A Chicago Alderman said he’d use his power to block them from getting the proper permits to build in Chicago. The Muppets stopped working with Chick-fil-A, too. […]
Today, Council Speaker Christine Quinn took it a step further and wrote a letter to NYU President John Sexton asking him to sever ties with the chain, effectively kicking them out of the city. The only Chick-fil-A in New York is located on the NYU campus. She also asked that, should he kick them out, the employees from the Chick-fil-A be given new jobs with whatever restaurant they get to replace it. She also started a petition demanding Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy apologize and change his position on gay marriage.
