Twitter CEO Apologizes For Eating Chick-fil-A During Pride Month

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey apologized Sunday after receiving backlash online for tweeting that he ate Chick-fil-A on Saturday.

Dorsey posted a photo on his Twitter page with the caption “Boost @ChickfilA,” which showed he saved 10% on an order from the popular fast food chain. Chick-fil-A faced backlash from the LBGT community in 2012 after CEO Dan Cathy stated the company supported “biblical definition of a family unit.”

Immediately after Dorsey posted the tweet, he received backlash from critics which included former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien:

 “This is an interesting company to boost during Pride month, @jack.”

Dorsey replied to O’Brein’s tweet stating he had forgotten about the fast food chain’s controversial statement:

“You’re right. Completely forgot about their background.”
