Crowds Stop Traffic to Appreciate Chick-Fil-A
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — People in the Kansas City metro area and all around the nation lined up on Wednesday to get their chicken sandwich and show their support for Chick-fil-A and its president’s views of same-sex marriage.
When FOX 4 first arrived at the Chick-fil-A at The Legends, there were about 30 cars in the drive-through lane and about 30 people inside. But that was before noon. The crowds grew larger throughout the afternoon, and although no officials numbers have been released yet, it was certainly one of Chick-fil-A’s busiest days for lunch and took much longer than normal to place an order.
Of course, the controversy is lighting up Facebook and Twitter. See some of the statements made to social media below.
I'm confused as to why people think everyone's boycotting Chick-Fil-A for their "religious beliefs" when that's a smokescreen for homophobia—

Sad: More people will visit or boycott Chick-Fil-A today than vote in November.—

Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day was such a success, they're thinking of announcing they also hate Irish people.—
