    A Call for Boycotts This week a wave of controversy has been ignited by the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) section on Chick-fil-A’s website, stirring up discussions and garnering attention across various platforms. While this content may not be entirely new, its emergence has prompted calls for boycotts from some individuals on social media. Promoting Equality Upon visiting the DEI page, one encounters a statement that states, “One of our core values at Chick-fil-A, Inc. is that we are better together.” Additionally, it mentions Chick-fil-A’s commitment to embedding Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in every aspect of its operations. The company...

    Some conservatives have suggested a boycott of Chick-fil-A after the fast-food chain was discovered to have a vice president of “diversity, equity, [and] inclusion,” or DEI. In a previously issued Chick-fil-A news release, the company said that Erick McReynolds serves as its vice president of DEI, saying: “Chick-fil-A restaurants have long been recognized as a place where people know they will be treated well. Modeling care for others starts in the restaurant, and we are committed to ensuring mutual respect, understanding, and dignity everywhere we do business.”DEI is a set of principles that large corporations, government agencies, and schools have...

    One Spicy Deluxe, Hold the WokeThe Marxist toilet dwellers have scored a major victory, and this one stings.Chicken sandwich behemoth Chick-fil-A bent a knee, put a shotgun in its mouth, and hired a Diversity, Equity & Inclusivity (DEI) executive.Perhaps they just start selling Bud Light and call it a day.PREDICTION-O-RAMA! The woke social crusader crowd has been boycotting — and harassing — Chick-fil-A since 2012, when a now-former president spoke out against gay marriage. Hiring a DEI clown will not result in hordes of liberal, green-haired dime museums crashing through their doors. But now, many conservatives are thinking about jumping...

    Is Chick-fil-A going woke? That’s the reaction on social media now that the popular restaurant has reports on its web site that Erick McReynolds is the VP of diversity, equity and inclusion. “Chick-fil-A restaurants have long been recognized as a place where people know they will be treated well. Modeling care for others starts in the restaurant, and we are committed to ensuring mutual respect, understanding and dignity everywhere we do business,” McReynolds is quoted as saying on the site. “These tenets are good business practice and crucial to fulfilling our Corporate Purpose.” The establishment makes it known the corporate...

    So this came as a total shock to me, apparantly Chick-Fil-A are nowing celebrating "Pride Month". After everything that happened standing up for traditional marriage they do this U-turn? I say "may have" in the title since I'm still not entirely sure this isn't just a fake or not Was also shocked and disgusted to see Wendy's and Krispie Kreme have fallen too.

    A Pennsylvania Chick-fil-A has laid down the law after disruptive behavior from young customers reached the breaking point. “[T]o dine in our restaurant, anyone under the age of 16 is required to be accompanied by an adult. If not accompanied by an adult, they may come in to purchase food, but must take it to go,” the Chick-fil-A in Royersford, Pennsylvania, posted Wednesday on Facebook. The post noted, “We contemplated long and hard before posting this, but decided it was time.” The post shared a litany of problems experienced on Saturdays and days when students are not in school, which...

    A North Carolina woman has accused a Chick-Fil-A employee of putting a racial slur on her receipt when she stopped by at her favorite place to eat. Nyiashia Jackson, 19, pulled up last week at the drive-thru in Charlotte, where she was shocked to see what was written on her receipt. To her dismay, her name appeared to have been turned into a racial slur with a minor typo – the N-word spelled with one G, WCCB Charlotte reported. “I was just in shock. I literally parked right there, I couldn’t eat the food,” Jackson told the news outlet. She...
  • Chick-Fil-A’s Hyped Plant-Based Sandwich Flops: ‘Why Is Cauliflower $7?’

    Chick-fil-A launched their new cauliflower sandwich on Monday, but some are already complaining about its hefty price tag. The sandwich has a starting price tag of $6.59, according to USA Today, but many are claiming it cost them more than that. The new dish, which is being tested in three markets — Denver, Colo., Charleston, SC, and North Carolina’s Greensboro-Triad area — is the restaurant’s first plant-forward meal. On Chick-fil-A’s website, they describe the sandwich as a “tender filet” made from cauliflower that’s then breaded in their “signature seasoning” and pressure-cooked in their 100% refined peanut oil.

    An owner of a Chick-fil-A in North Carolina was fined over $6,000 and required to pay a handful of employees in back wages after the Department of Labor found multiple child labor and minimum wage standards were violated. A report released by the DOL on Monday said the Chick-fil-A location in Hendersonville, N.C., which is owned by Good Name 22:1 LLC, allowed three workers under the age of 18 to operate, load or unload a trash compactor, which resulted in $6,450 in fines. Federal regulations surrounding child labor prohibit employed minors to perform hazardous jobs.

    FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. — A Florida Chick-fil-A employee is being hailed as a hero after deputies said he stopped a carjacking outside the fast food restaurant.

Investigators said the woman was getting the baby out of her car when a man identified as William Branch walked up to her wielding a stick and demanded her keys. Branch then grabbed the car keys from the...

    Imagine that you’re a makeup artist or a production manager on a Marvel movie. You’re working long hours and barely have time to shop for groceries or get in any exercise, let alone do yardwork or socialize. But what if your house was a pleasant 10-minute stroll from the studio, during which you passed a craft beer bar and outdoor concert stage? You’re too tired when you get home to think about grocery shopping, but that’s OK, because the delivery robot has just rolled up in front of your house with your weekly order.That’s the almost-too-utopian promise of Trilith, the...
  • Political Vendetta Or ‘Public Nuisance’: Santa Barbara Chick-fil-A Under Fire

    The Santa Barbara City Council has given restaurant Chick-fil-A 90 days to fix its traffic problems on State Street or face the possibility of being declared a public nuisance. Why? A local woman who “never liked Chick-fil-A,” not because of their product, but “for their social positions,” found a reason to cancel reported: What spurred Hobbs to local action, however, was watching the upper State Street restaurant’s overcrowded drive-thru line spill constantly and precariously into the road, a public safety issue that has persisted for the better part of the decade, unabated, with no apparent consequences for either the...

The Turnpike authority runs the Garden State Parkway. A Shake Shack, Popeyes, Dunkin’, and a...

    A pair of Arizona State University students have unleashed a nine minute diatribe after they were disciplined for taunting two white male students who entered the college's multicultural space. On Monday, Mastaani Qureshi, an undergraduate, and Sarra Tekola, a graduate student, posted a video on social media alleging ASU had carried out an investigation into their actions and called for them to write a three-page paper. In the video posted in response to the University's punishment Qureshi and Tekola claim the investigation into their actions was racially biased adding they were forced to confront these men because, in their view,...

    LGBT activists are relentless in forcing their agenda on the American people. It’s not enough for companies to fly rainbow flags every Pride month — they have to use special pronouns, too. It’s not enough for businesses to serve LGBT people — they have to bake custom cakes celebrating same-sex weddings and gender transitions, too. It’s not enough for Christian companies to stop funding outspoken political groups — they have to stop funding Christian groups, too.Take Chick-fil-A, for example. Back in 2012, LGBT activists targeted Chick-fil-A for a “kiss-in,” to protest the fast food joint’s stance defining marriage as being...

    Chick-fil-A is getting skewered by a group of New York lawmakers who are looking to block the company’s bid to open restaurants at state highway rest stops because of its owner’s anti-LGBTQ stance. The Atlanta-based fast-food chain is among a handful of restaurants that were awarded contracts by the New York State Thruway Authority to be part of a $450 million plan to renovate 27 service areas. But Chick-fil-A’s chief executive, Dan Cathy — whose father, S. Truett Cathy, founded the $8.4 billion company in 1946 — has publicly disparaged LGBTQ rights, which some legislators say should disqualify the privately...

    So is the New York State Thruway.And recent calls by activist politicians for Chick-fil-A to be banned at newly renovated Thruway service plazas are examples of intolerance and bigotry.Because America is a live-and-let-live country, and those who demand respect should be obligated by conscience to give it as well. And if gay activists insist that the world be big enough to accommodate them, they must accept the fact that it is also big enough to accommodate people who are different from them.If we are all brothers and sisters, and we are all free, and we all are free to pursue...
