Gayle King and Oprah team up with antigay Chick-fil-A

O Magazine staffers chow down at Chick-fil-A Derek de Koff

On Thursday, Gayle King posted a picture to Instagram of herself and the staff of O Magazine smiling happily while eating a big spread of chicken sandwiches provided by antigay fast food giant Chick-fil-A.

The post seems to insinuate that Chick-fil-A will be on the once-coveted list of Oprah’s “favorite things” in next month’s issue of the magazine. It was captioned:

@oprahmagazine December FAVORITE things issue heading to your newsstands @therealadamsays suggest@chikfila celebration big deal since most people in office have NEVER had it …

But not everyone is pleased with the Oprah machine throwing its support behind such a vocally antigay company.

“Very disappointed in you & the magazine support this awful company,” one person commented on the photo.

I thought better of you than this @gayleking,” another person said.

“How disappointing. A company like Chick Fil A should not be supported,” a third person added.

Last month, Chick-fil-A opened its first store in New York City, where it was greeted by a group of progay protestors, who were then harassed by antigay protestors who shouted things like “Repent your sins you homos!”
