A Chick-fil-A restaurant was vandalized during a gay pride parade in New York City last weekend, apparently over the beliefs of the fast-food company’s president.
As reported by The Daily Caller, photos emerged over the weekend as the World Pride Parade took place Sunday to close out Pride month 2019.
The photos appear to show the vandalized front window of the Chick-fil-A location on 46th Street in Manhattan.
The phrase “F*** haters” was written in black marker on a piece of tape that was used to create a giant pink X on the storefront window. The X was placed right above vinyl lettering on the window that says “Home of the Original Chicken Sandwich.”
Another photo obtained and shared by the Daily Caller shows what appears to be “F*ck haters” also written on the storefront window in marker.
Another strand of pink tape was placed across the restaurant’s entrance. A sign was also placed in the entranceway that reads: “LOVE is a terrible thing to waste.”
Considering that the parade was held on Sunday, the Chick-fil-A was closed during that time.
It is not immediately clear if Chick-fil-A is planning to file a police report or if suspects were apprehended. The Christian Post reached out to Chick-fil-A for comment on the incident. A response is pending.
Although Chick-fil-A’s chicken sandwiches are loved by millions and the fast-food chain is now the nation’s third largest, LGBT activists and liberals have called for a boycott of the company since its president, Dan Cathy, voiced opposition to gay marriage in 2012.
Cathy, a Baptist, stated on a radio show at the time that “we’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.”
