Ed Helms Is Boycotting Chick-Fil-A Because of Their Anti-Gay Stance

7/19/2012




Chick-Fil-A has lost a customer.  It's ED HELMS, star of "The Office" and the "Hangover" movies.  He's boycotting the joint because of the apparent anti-gay attitudes of its president Dan Cathy.  In a recent interview with a Christian magazine, Cathy was asked about allegations that Chick-Fil-A is actively opposed to gay marriage.  And he responded that the chain is, "guilty as charged."  Cathy also said that in 2010 alone, the company donated nearly $2 million to religious groups that oppose gay marriage.

Helms Tweeted,  "Chick-Fil-A doesn't like gay people?  So lame.  Hate to think what they do to the gay chickens!  Lost a loyal fan."  We haven't heard any other celebrities speak up yet, but the NOH8 campaign has called for a boycott, and just about every celebrity in Hollywood has posed for one of those NOH8 photos.
