NYU Chick-Fil-A Flyer A Hoax—But Company’s Homophobia Is Very Real

We’ve kept you abreast (pun intended) of the ongoing saga of Chick-Fil-A, the Christian-owned fast food joint long under fire for discriminating against gays and lesbians. Here in New York, the company’s sole outlet is on the campus of New York University, where student groups have been trying to get it ousted for years.

This week, a flyer that appeared to be from Chick-Fil-A went viral on the Internet, thanking the NYU community for its continuing patronage and encouraging people to apply for jobs.

Of course, if you read the fine print at the bottom of the ad, you saw some rather strict stipulations:

Remember Chick-Fil-A is a Christian company. We strive to have our values reflected in our employees. Please be prepared to discuss your religion, family history, personal relationships, etc., upon interviewing. Chick-Fil-A reserves the right to question, in detail, your sexual relationship history.

The Bible and Chick-Fil-A define a traditional relationship as consisting of a man and woman. Anyone living a life of sin need not apply. The Chick-Fil-A foundation. God, Family, Tradition.

Not surprisingly, it turns out the flyer was a hoax: “It’s inappropriate and we had nothing to do with it,” a Chick-Fil-A spokesperson told Metro newspaper. “If you look at the logo, you can see it’s not correct, which is further evidence that it’s fraudulent.”

Well, the logo might be wrong but there’s really nothing on the flyer that’s not in line with the corporation’s public policy.  Sorry, Chick-Fil-A, that bird won’t fly.

      All right, I’ll bite, so to speak: there’s a lot about the ad that, to me, makes it obviously fake. But I can’t find anything wrong with the logo itself. How is it incorrect?

      There is no beak on the “C” chicken in the logo…that’s what is wrong with it.

      @Mike: Huh. You’re right… and no eye, either. I wonder how I missed that… but moreso, why it’s not there. Surely it was more difficult to remove than to leave in place.

      thanks for the update. If there is any place that does not need LGBT consumers, this is it.

      @Stupid: No need to worry about that! Certain parts of chickens, however…

      Oh well. Myself and thousands of GLBT people and straight people will continue to eat Chic Fil A.

      Why do you patronize a company that uses your money for anti Gay activities?

      David, do you know what the definition of “traitor” is?
      No? You’ll find one in your nearest mirror.

      I must admit, I sincerely doubt my six dollar chicken sandwich will set the LGBT movement back fifty years.

      @PopSnap: Six dollars for a Chick-fil-A sandwich!? Where do you live?

      The chick-fil-a biscuit I just had was so good. They’ll still get my business still.
