Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day Draws Supporters, Crowds and Protests: Photos, Tweets and More

Would you like some politics with your fried chicken? Thousands supported Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day on Wednesday. See photos, tweets and more from the latest gay-marriage battleground.

Chick-fil-A became the latest battleground in the gay-marriage culture war after company president Dan Cathy announced in July that he supported the “biblical definition of the family unit.” The fast-food chain lost sponsors and gay-marriage supporters declared a boycott—but those against same-sex marriage rallied behind the company. Sarah Palin sent a photo of herself and husband Todd visiting a Chick-fil-A and former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and declared August 1 “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.” Thousands flocked to their local franchise on Wednesday, drawing long lines and flooding social media. See the best photos, tweets and more from Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.
