Office‘s Ed Helms Says Chick-Fil-A Leaves Bad Taste In His Mouth

We always thought of The Office‘s Ed Helms as a funny guy. But by declaring he’s boycotting Chick-fil-A—the fast-food chain whose owner recently reiterated his anti-gay views—he’s shown he’s got leading man potential.

“Chick-fil-A doesn’t like gay people? So lame. Hate to think what they do to the gay chickens! Lost a loyal fan,” Helms tweeted yesterday.

Earlier this week Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press his company was “guilty as charged” when it comes to accusations that it opposes marriage equality.  “We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” Cathy said. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”

Ugh, we just lost our appetite.
