This is decision made by the Jim Henson Company. The owner of Chick-fil-A should have kept his mouth shut and just made money. As if his stance would matter in the long run. These things were bound to happen. All you need is a strong lobby and money. What happened to the “Freedom of Speech” and being able to express one’s opinion without this media frenzy and backlash. Shows how the media has an agenda and the politicians are nothing but controlled Muppets.
The Muppets have decided to boycott Chick-fil-A over its owner’s public stance against gay marriage. In an announcement on Facebook, Jim Henson Company CEO Lisa Henson said her company will no longer supply toys or other merchandise to the fast-food chain.
“The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors,” the post reads. “Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-fil-A to GLAAD.”
Since the announcement was posted to Facebook on Friday, it has received more than 6,000 “likes” from readers and been shared across the social network thousands of times.
