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

In 2012 Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy drew rebukes from gay rights advocates when he said he supports a'biblical definition of family

In 2012 Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy drew rebukes from gay rights advocates when he said he supports a'biblical definition of family

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".

Congo warlord, Jean-Pierre Bemba's conviction overturned
Bemba was found guilty in 2016 of crimes committed in the neighbouring Central African Republic (CAR) in 2002-2003. Judges are to decide "shortly whether Mr Bemba's continued detention is warranted", Van den Wyngaert said.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Officially Revealed With New Trailer; Release Date Confirmed

Man stabbed to death, 2 women injured on bullet train
A female passenger was also killed and more than 20 people were injured as the fire and smoke spread throughout the carriages. After he started living with his grandmother, she said he mainly stayed home, reading books and surfing the internet.

"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?"
