Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Sunday expressed regret over eating at Chick-fil-A, because of the chicken company’s CEO’s personal views on gay marriage.
Dorsey tweeted a screenshot from his phone that showed a purchase he had made at Chick-fil-A using a mobile application. After a liberal backlash, however, Dorsey apologized for eating at the popular fast food restaurant.
At issue was Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s 2012 support for defining marriage as between a man and a woman, which he described as “the biblical definition of a family.”
Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien was among those to call out Dorsey for eating at the self-described home of the original chicken sandwich.
O’Brien indicated that Dorsey had sinned by publicly eating at Chick-fil-A during gay pride month. (RELATED: Corporations Becoming New Arbiters Of Public Morality)
“You’re right,” Dorsey conceded. “Completely forgot about their background.” (RELATED: Twitter CEO Shares And Raves About Article Calling For Dem Victory In Second ‘Civil War’)
