Chick-fil-A Goes Wrong with Holiday “Fruitcake” Advertisement

Chick-fil-A Goes Wrong with Holiday “Fruitcake” Advertisement

It seems like Chick-fil-A is under the scope yet again. After their summer controversy with the LGBT community and thoughts on gay marriage, the popular restaurant-chain is now being scrutinized for advertisements used at a Georgia location. “Only a fruitcake wouldn’t love our party trays!” Printed out on flyers and being handed our to city patrons, the company’s vice president – Steve Robinson – has said the following about the matter:

This is an advertisement that a locally owned and operated restaurant has been using for the past five years to promote Chick-fil-A’s catering options during the holidays. It was simply a play on words referring to the traditional holiday food, and the restaurant had no intention of offending anyone whatsoever. We regret the flyer may have been taken out of context.

The flyers have since then been removed. Only an idiot would overlook the potential heat from such a phrase. But then again, we don’t like their party trays either.

    It’s really not that serious. People have the thinnest skin now-a-days. It’s so annoying.

    this shit is stupid, if a homosexual was offended by this then they should be. All i hear about is how “they” want to be “recognized” for whatever reason. Well you know recognition also precedes hate. Get over it, there is always going to be someone who doesnt like homo’s. there’s always going to hate people that are black. GET THE FUCK OVER IT. put your big girl panties and throw a finger to your haters. quit trying to dogg businesses just for attention. IT makes you look like a fucking snob.

    I’m impressed, I need to say. Actually rarely do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you have got hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is something that not enough persons are speaking intelligently about. I am very comfortable that I stumbled throughout this in my search for something referring to this.
