If there is one fast food chain most people love, it would be Chick-Fil-A. While many people love themselves some Chick-Fil-A chicken, not everybody is on board with the brand. It’s been well documented that the brand has a peculiar stance on same-sex marriage and these protestors at a recent ECHL hockey game were not feeling Chick-Fil-A whatsoever. The Cincinnati Cyclones actually have Chick-Fil-A as a sponsor and the brand’s logo can be found on their Zamboni.
Well, in protest of the brand, a group of people hijacked the Zamboni and plastered their anti-Chick-Fil-A signs all over it. The signs read “Chick-Fil-A is anti-gay” and the whole ordeal caused quite the stir. Afterward, the team issued a statement explaining what happened and condemned the protestors.
“During the first intermission a group of protesters riding the Chick-fil-A Fan Zam displayed unacceptable messaging that was hidden inside of a birthday sign,” the statement said, according to TMZ.”The Cincinnati Cyclones & U.S. Bank Arena do not condone this type of behavior or the messaging expressed. These actions do not align with the family-friendly atmosphere that we aim to provide. Chick-fil-A has been a wonderful partner and we are thankful for their on-going support.”
In the end, the Cyclones ended up losing their game, 2-0 to the Kalamazoo Wings.
