You would think that after all the brouhaha last year over the company’s antigay stance, Chick-Fil-A President Dan Cathy would have learned to keep his mouth shut. But no. In the wake of the Supreme Court ruling on DOMA, Cathy took to Twitter, the graveyard of common sense, to express his disapproval.
“Sad day for our nation; founding fathers would be ashamed of our gen. to abandon wisdom of the ages re: cornerstone of strong society,” Cathy wrote.
Apparently realizing what a colossal PR blunder he had made, Cathy deleted the tweet, but it had already been captured and sent to a Wall Street Journal reporter.
A company spokesperson told the Huffington Post that Cathy “realized his views didn’t necessarily represent the views of all customers, restaurant owners and employees and didn’t want to distract them from providing a great restaurant experience.” Apparently, some people learn nothing from a crisis except how to repeat it.
