"Kiss Day" Aimed At Chick-Fil-A
Gay rights activists planned a "kiss day" at Chick-fil-A outlets nationwide today amid a controversy over a company official's stance against same-sex marriages. Organizers used social media to urge same-sex couples to participate in the event and post pictures and videos online. The latest campaign follows a Wednesday event dubbed "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" in which Americans lined up at eateries nationwide to support the company.
Chick-fil-A said it set a sales record Wednesday, but declined to release the numbers. The town of Boone, as well as towns all around the nation, dealt with heavy traffic congestion yesterday afternoon and into the evening as patrons flocked to Chick-Fil-A for Chick_Fil-A appreciation day. Traffic here in Boone was backed up well beyond the restraunts entrance on Blowing Rock Road. The Boone Police Department supplied several officers to direct traffic, designating a lane only for Patrons of the restraunt. The line for the drive through wrapped all the way around the building and onto the highway. As for today's protest, over 2,000 people said on social media they were planning to attend the event.
