Oprah‘s BFF Gayle King posted a picture to Instagram yesterday of herself and the staff of O Magazine smiling happily while chowing down on a big, greasy spread of chicken sandwiches provided by other than antigay fast food giant Chick-fil-A.

The post seems to insinuate that Chick-fil-A will somehow be incorporated into the once-coveted list of Oprah’s “favorite things” in next month’s issue of the magazine. It was captioned:

@oprahmagazine December FAVORITE things issue heading to your newsstands @therealadamsays suggest@chikfila celebration big deal since most people in office have NEVER had it …

But not everyone is pleased with the Oprah machine throwing its support behind such a vocally antigay company.

“Very disappointed you & the magazine support this awful company,” one person commented on the photo.

I thought better of you than this @gayleking,” another person said.

“How disappointing. A company like Chick Fil A should not be supported,” a third person added.

Last month, Chick-fil-A opened its first store in New York City, where it was greeted by a group of progay protestors, who were then harassed by antigay protestors shouting things like, “Repent your sins, you homos!”

Honestly, we’re not sure why Oprah’s brand has chosen to endorse such a polarizing, unhealthy and hateful company.

Looks like it may be time to cancel that subscription to O Magazine we never actually signed up for.

Scroll down for pictures of other public figures posing for photos stuffing their faces with Chick-fil-A. Remember, Ms. Winfrey, you can judge a person by the company they keep…
