'Modern Family' Star

Anti-Gay Chick-fil-A Meal?

9/22/2011 1:00 PM PDT BY Johnny Lopez


3:30 PM: Multiple sources close to Sarah have contacted us to say she is absolutely NOT anti-gay ... and she had no idea about Chick-fil-A's non-culinary practices. Mystery solved.

On television "Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland, 20, has two gay uncles, but in real life she just attended the grand opening of a new Chick-fil-A restaurant in Hollywood ... an evangelical Christian owned corporation which has been accused of being anti-gay.

Although Chick-fil-A has responded to the homophobic allegations by saying they "serve and value all people," they also routinely contribute to anti-gay organizations like Focus on the Family.

Pro-equality groups aren't happy about the fast food chain's latest outpost and are planning a protest in front of the new Hollywood location on Saturday.

While Sarah may not be aware of the chain's practices, TMZ contacted her rep but have not heard back.

Someone made way too much about this. They employ anyone and more importantly, their chicken is about the best fast food there is!

Because she has two gay Uncles she is forced to take a stance in the matter??? Talk about creating an issue out of nothing just to get a knee-jerking reaction.

how in the world is she supposed to be up on Gay issues.Straight people really don't care either way..But anyone trying to have a "career" in hollywood will pretend they actually care about gay rights.

Anyway she should be more concerned shoving that hormone injected, lab created piece of radio-active waste into her mouth..That should be a crime to sell that "Food"

Can you guys ever tell the other side of the story? Just because people do not agree with a homosexual lifestyle does not make them wrong or bad. It does not mean homosexuals would receive any less service or respect. People can disagree with choices of others and not hate them, slander them, or exclude them. Its a lifestyle choice I believ. That does not mean Chick Fil A is some hate group. Who really seems more hateful the Gay activists with their continous venemous remarks or Focus on the Family who simply disagrees with that lifestyle?

File that lawsuit, I am Lindsay Lohan!    

This is such a silly story, where is the "who cares" option on those polls?

Being Christian and supporting Christian organizations like Focus on the Family does not make you anti-gay. Why can so many people create hate to Christians and be anti-Christian without getting the same flack? Proud Christian, who is absolutely not anti-gay in anyway shape or form!

These thinly veiled political stories are getting old around here. I am sure that Harvey Levin has or currently supports something that is also anti-jew.
Stick to what you know. Leave the liberal propaganda to Alec Baldwin.

Stop bashing this restaurant. This is America and everyone has a right to their beliefs.

Stop with the embarrassing attempts to push the gay agenda. You are less than 3% of the population. No one cares what you do in your private life, but they care even less about your cause.
