Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey ignited a backlash online after revealing that he ate at Chick-fil-A this month.
On Saturday, Dorsey posted a photo on Twitter with the caption “Boost @ChickfilA,” showing he had saved 10% on a $31.58 order at the fast-food chain.
Critics immediately seized on Dorsey’s support of Chick-fil-A, whose CEO has come under fire for his views on same-sex marriage, during Pride Month.
“You must love the taste of bigotry!” one person wrote in response.
“Why is Twitter boosting a notoriously anti-gay company during #PrideMonth?” another person wrote.
Among the critics was the former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien, who said, “This is an interesting company to boost during Pride month, @jack.”
Dorsey responded: “You’re right. Completely forgot about their background.”
Some people supported Dorsey’s decision to eat at Chick-fil-A, saying that it’s “great” and that he shouldn’t have to apologize for eating a chicken sandwich.
