As we’ve all pretty much gathered already, Chick-fil-A and Phil Robertson have a lot in common, i.e., killing poultry and homophobia. But the people at Chick-fil-A are denying that the company is involved with a growing pro-Phil Robertson campaign appropriately called “Chick-Phil-A.”
The Chick-Phil-A campaign is gaining quite a bit of steam on social media, especially among conservative pitch-forked villagers who cherish their rights to disseminate anti-gay propaganda. Naturally, the campaign is encouraging people to eat at Chick-fil-A restaurants on January 21st while wearing Duck Commander or camouflage gear to show their support for the Bible-thumping “Duck Dynasty” star.
A Facebook page for the campaign says, “Stand for free speech. Sit for good food.” So far, more than 40,000 homophobes are expected to participate.
Despite Chick-fil-A’s history of anti-gay marriage activism, the restaurant says the event “is in no way sponsored by or affiliated with Chick-fil-A,” claiming that Chick-Phil-A (confused yet?) was created by an independent group.
So far, no “independent” group has come forward to take credit for the campaign.
