Chick-Fil-A CEO: If We Find Someone That Needs Their Shoes Shined, We Should Shine Their Shoes

Conservative activists are considering a boycott of the fast food restaurant Chick-fil-A due to its diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policies because they believe the business has become more progressive. The company's vice president of DEI, Erick McReynolds, made a comment that has garnered notice on the internet.

"Chick-fil-People have traditionally regarded restaurants as places where they may go and be sure that they will receive good service. "We are dedicated to maintaining mutual respect, understanding, and decency wherever we conduct business," he stated. "Modelling caring for others starts in the restaurant. "These principles are essential to achieving our Corporate Purpose and good business practice."

On Tuesday morning, political analyst Joey Mannarino called attention to the comments by stating, "We have a problem. Recently, Chick-Fil-A recruited a vice president of diversity, equity, and inclusion. It's not good. Very poor. I'd prefer not to engage in a boycott. Should we engage in a boycott?

 

According to his LinkedIn page, McReynolds has been working in the job since November 2021.

In addition, Mannarino asked his followers in a poll if they should boycott Chick-fil-A. More than 80,000 people had cast ballots as of the time of publication, and a slender 52.6% of them were against a boycott.

Conservatives have called for a boycott of beer brand Bud Light and retail behemoth Target because they have adopted LGBTQ-themed merchandise and marketing initiatives.

Since it is a Christian business, Chick-fil-A doesn't open on Sundays. The brand has long been under fire for supporting philanthropic groups that many left-wing activists view as antagonistic to LGBTQ activities. As of 2019, the firm stopped supporting these groups, according to Nexstar.
