Openly Gay YouTube Sensation Antoine Dodson Says He Loves Himself Some Chick-fil-A
by Yvette Carnell
Apparently, whether or not you continue to patronize Chick-fil-A doesn’t depend on whether you’re gay or straight, or whether you’re in support of or opposed to gay rights. It really just depends on how much you looooove yourself some chicken!
Former YouTube sensation, Antoine “They Rapin’ Erybody” Dodson, says even though he’s gay, he’s not giving up his Chick-fil-A. No ma’am. That chicken is just too good.
“I don’t care about one person’s opinion or how they feel – that’s how they feel. That’s fine,” said Dodson. “Chick-fil-A makes good meals and I eat there, you know what I’m saying? Quite frequently. So, no one is going to stop me from eating there.”
“People say a lot of crazy things,” Dodson concluded. (For the record, Antoine’s defense of Chick-fil-A remind me a lot of this story.)
Dodson is correct in the sense that everyone has the right to do what they feel with their own money, but he misses the point when he says this is only about opinions. This stopped being about Chick-fil-A’s opinions when the company began giving money to organizations that lobby against gay marriage equality in Congress.
This, of course, doesn’t mean that people who oppose the gay rights agenda can’t voice their support for Chick-fil-A by continuing to patronize the fast food eatery. People on both sides of the debate are free to react to Chick-fil-A’s lobbying however they choose. But when Chick-fil-A began donating money to groups like Focus on the Family and other anti-gay lobbying groups, this became a debate about policy, not opinion.
And even though Chick-fil-A is being boycotted for its support of anti-gay lobbying groups, it’s not uncommon for people to boycott companies purely based on their opinions. Oreo posted a picture of a rainbow colored gay pride cookie on its Facebook page (see below), and several conservatives vowed to never eat the deliciousness of the little sandwich cookie again:
