Chick-fil-A, home of chicken-loving bigots, is in the middle of a PR nightmare. After Chick-fil-A’s COO admitted to being anti-gay, the Jim Henson Company (bless their heart) pulled their toys from Chick-fil-A’s kids meals.

A lie that they’re propagating with fake Facebook accounts of Chick-fil-a sympathists.
Yep, Chick-fil-A is still stuck in its own reality and is doubling down on its lie.
