You better fucking support gay marriage, Panda Express!
Pretty funny, you forgot five guys though.
I couldn’t find their official Twitter.
Lol @ Dairy Queen.
Betcha hotdog on a stick does ….
This is not about whether or not certain companies support gay marriage. It’s about donating over $2 million of your company’s earnings to anti-gay groups and then taking to Twitter to crow about it.
Don’t eat there. Get your friends not to eat there. Get your family not to eat there. Don’t think you have the right to stop others from eating there or telling them what they do with their money or where they can operate. Pretty simple American values here.
Thank for thaking your time doing this. I doubt they will respond. That is too sentive issue. Chick-fil-a could get away with it cause their market is american, and many americans are religious fundamentalists. Now if, let’s say McDonalds would say anything against gay marriage, they would face serious consequences, particularly in Europe.

I doubt it. Most Europeans would be totally indifferent and wouldn’t care less, at least when your in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein or Italy. Even in Scandinavia is not very high on anybody’s radar; people might say “yes” to it in a poll, but they would not care enough about it to “vote with their feet”. Unlike Americans which feel passionately one way or the other, the median European is “meh” when it comes to these issues.
If I were the company I’d say nothing, given a) the country is divided on the subject; b) not everyone who is gay supports gay marriage (where I am from 26% of gays oppose it; 50% support it; the rest want “some other institution” and c) unless they are ardent for the cause one way or the other, they don’t care who buys their goods so long as they make money. That and they don’t want to piss any of their customer base off, left or right.
I wonder if they will answer or not…
