Chick-Fil-A Pulls Muppet Toys After Henson Denounces Companyby: Posted:
The great Chick-fil-A feud continues. Just days ago, the Jim Henson Company withdrew its partnership with the Christian-leaning restaurant chain following a bit of a PR mess as Chick-fil-A announced its official opposition to same-sex marriage.
It was a bold and unmistakable move on the part of the Henson Company, as they even announced that they would be taking the money they received from the restaurant chain and donating it to GLAAD.
Now, Chick-fil-A has seemingly responded: the restaurant has recalled the Henson-based Pajanimals toys that were being handed out in restaurants. Chick-fil-A claims that there was a safety issue with the toys, and that it was not a strike back at Henson.
Those who are protesting the company didn't buy that argument, however, and continued to post on the Chick-fil-A Facebook page. That spawned this odd little exchange, in which it would appear that the company's PR team made a fake Facebook profile in order to argue with protesters incognito:
Pretty good, right? This whole situation is getting pretty crazy, but I'd like us all to stop and think of those who get caught in the crossfire: those poor, poor children who don't get their Pajanimals toys, and those poor, delicious chicken sandwiches that won't get eaten.
