Jack Dorsey Apologizes for Eating Chick-fil-A After Twitter Mob Attacks

He was reminded of the questionable nature of promoting Chick-fil-A during Pride Month to which he conceded'You're right. Completely forgot about their background

He was reminded of the questionable nature of promoting Chick-fil-A during Pride Month to which he conceded'You're right. Completely forgot about their background

Dorsey found himself the subject of a tweetstorm after he posted a screenshot showing how he'd saved 10 percent using Chick-fil-A's app at one of the fast-food chain's outlets in Los Angeles.

Soledad O'Brien, a former news anchor with CNN, notes the irony in supporting Chick-Fil-A, tweeting how "this is an interesting company to boost during Pride month".

Numerous others weighed in to show their support for the restaurant and for Dorsey's right to tweet about it if he wished.

Erica Joy added: 'Please delete this or follow up with how much free advertising you're going to give GLAAD'.

However, it appears the LGBTQ community hasn't forgotten that Cathy, a devout Christian, told a Christian radio that his company supported "the biblical definition of the family unit" and that gay marriage was "inviting God's judgment on the USA".

"Fox & Friends" Anchor Accidentally Calls Donald Trump A "Dictator"
President Trump is set to meet Kim Jong-un for the first time at their summit on Tuesday on the resort island of Sentosa. UPDATE: Later in the broadcast, Fox & Friends host Abby Huntsman apologized for the slip.

Kim Jong Un goes for surprise nighttime walk ahead of summit
The North Korean leader said he is interested in close work with the U.S. president, the Straits Times newspaper reports. Trump, who arrived Sunday night, tweeted Monday morning: "Great to be in Singapore , excitement in the air!"

United flight bound for Chicago diverted to Ireland
A spokesman said: "United flight UA971 en route to Chicago from Rome, diverted to Shannon following a potential security concern". Irish police said United Airlines flight 971 landed at the Shannon Airport there "following a discovery of a message".

"You're right. Completely forgot about their background", the Twitter honcho replied.

In response to O'Brien's tweet, Dorsey essentially apologized without actually apologizing. You mean their late CEO being a Christian? Many accused Dorsey of aiding Chick-fil-A's alleged bigotry. Cathy has since called his remarks a mistake, and reports say the fast-growing company has worked to broaden its brand image away from controversial issues as it has expanded into cities like NY and tried to cater more to millennials.

"Why is Twitter boosting a notoriously anti-gay company during #PrideMonth?" another person wrote. "The food is good", wrote one user.

Another user also responded to Dorsey, telling him to relax - it's just a sandwich. And trust me if the guy who waited on me yesterday wasn't transgendered, I'll eat my shoe.

"Why is it because I live my life so gay, That I should not eat Chick-fil-A?"
