'Modern Family' Star

Anti-Gay Chick-fil-A Meal?

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.

i think the story is silly, but if you hate TMZ so much gtfo their site, and go to another site. Am pretty sure gay people wouldn't force christian.com to chance their anti-gay stance, so why should tmz chance theirs. It is very simple if you don't like it GTFO THE SITE

Who cares! I don't eat Chick-Fil-A because their food is overpriced and over-hyped. And it is not tasty as it should be!

Chick-fil-A does more for the communities they are in than every democrat (straight or gay) in congress combined. What a stupid none story. Where are the stories regarding celebrities supporting union thugs like SEIU or corrupt anti-American organizations like ACORN?

Way to twist this situation and perpetuate the whole Christian "anti-gay" propaganda.

chick fil-A is not Anti-gay. Just because they contribute to focus on the family, does not mean they hate gay people. We are talking chicken sandwiches people, give me a break.

Anti-gay and Homophobic should not be considered the same as they seem to be in your article. One can love a gay person and treat them with respect. Tolerance, in my view is not enough. Homosexuals are people and should be loved. But love does not mean one should agree with the lifestyle they have chosen. The average life expectancy of an active homosexual male is about 45 years. That is a concern to me. If I love a homosexual, I should tell them this. I know many homosexuals who have in their own words communicated great suffering physically and mentally because of their choices. Should I stand by silent and watch others go down the same road, or should I tell them what I know and them let them make their choice with all the facts?

Chick-Fil-A got caught trying to impersonate a teenage girl on their Website to counter the comments from people who protest against their giving money to anti-gay groups. That is slimy. I'm glad they are not in my state.
