Chick-fil-A Says They Didn’t Mean Gays When They Said ‘Fruitcake’


Chick-fil-A comments on a sale coupon first posted on Towleroad last week.

"This is an advertisement that a locally owned and operated restaurant has been using for the past five years to promote Chick-fil-A's catering options during the holidays," Steve Robinson, the company's executive vice president and chief marketing officer said in a statement to The Advocate Tuesday afternoon. "It was simply a play on words referring to the traditional holiday food, and the restaurant had no intention of offending anyone whatsoever. We regret the flyer may haven been taken out of context."
