Chick-fil-A Downplays President's Gay Marriage Tweet

Ad Feedback

Chick-fil-A is hoping to prevent another firestorm after its president, Dan Cathy, tweeted his disappointment in the Supreme Court decision on gay marriage Wednesday.

The tweet criticized the ruling which gives federal rights to same-sex marriages in states where they are legal

"Sad day for our nation; founding fathers would be ashamed of our gen. to abandon wisdom of the ages re: cornerstone of strong societies," Cathy tweeted, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Cathy quickly removed the tweet he made.

In a written response, Chick-fil-A issued a statement acknowledging the post, saying Cathy's tweet was a personal comment and his views do not necessarily reflect the company's views.

"Dan recognizes his views do not necessarily represent the views of all Chick-fil-A customers, restaurant owners, and employees, so he removed the tweet to eliminate any confusion," the company said.

Last year, Chick-fil-A weathered a media firestorm after Cathy made comments supporting traditional marriage. However, the backlash inspired a "Chick-fil-A day" across the nation, in which his supporters rallied behind him by eating at the restaurant chain.
