Hockey fans found a creative way to protest Chick-fil-A at a game this past Saturday.

At a Cincinnati Cyclones game, several fans sneaked some signs onto the “Fan Zam,” a zamboni that people can pay $10 to ride on the ice before the game and during intermissions. The Fan Zam is covered in Chick-fil-A logos because it’s an giant advertisement for the fast food joint.

According to the Cyclones’ Twitter account, some fans brought signs calling out Chick-fil-A’s anti-LGBTQ donations with them onto the Fan Zam, hidden inside birthday signs.

They then rode around the ice showing signs that read “Chick-fil-A is anti-gay.”

The Cyclones responded by saying that the protest ruined the “family friendly atmosphere” atmosphere of the game and that all signs would be banned in the future.

Cincinnati City Council member Chris Seelbach called out the hockey team for claiming to be LGBTQ-friendly but then accepting advertising dollars from Chick-fil-A.

“Can’t have it both ways Cincinnati Cyclones,” he said. “You can’t pretend to be LGBT friendly by hosting a pride night, but also have anti-gay Chick-fil-A as a sponsor.”
