Professor Labels Chick-fil-A ‘Fried Food For Homophobes’
A petition from Change.org wants the Chick-fil-A restaurant at Youngstown State University (YSU) shut down, claiming that all that “homophobic” chicken just “adds to the negative experience of LGBT students.”
As Campus Reform reports, the petition has support among faculty, with one professor calling the fast-food establishment “fried food for homophobes.”
“I am a professor at YSU. I have not set foot up there since they became Chick-fil-A. A long time ago it used to be a respectable place where you could take an invited speaker out to lunch and even have table service. We now have no such place and I will not support Fried Food for Homophobes, which is what I think of Chick-fil-A,” said Heather Lorimer, an associate professor in genetics at YSU.
“Chick-fil-a is well known for its CEO’s bigotry,” Lorimer told Campus Reform. “Since it has been Chick-fil-A I have not set a foot in it.”
The petition strongly objects to Chick-fil-A being “the only place to get food in the evenings” on campus and won’t accept any apologies from the restaurant for past statements because the it “still donating money to anti-LGBT organizations.”
