Ed Helms

I Won't Eat at Chick-fil-A

... 'Cause It's Anti-Gay

"Office" star Ed Helms is officially boycotting Chick-fil-A ... claiming the restaurant chain's anti-gay stance has caused him to lose his appetite.

Helms is responding to a statement issued by Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy ... who recently told a Christian publication that when it comes to accusations his company is actively opposed to gay marriage, Chick-fil-A is "guilty as charged."

Cathy claims his chicken people support the "biblical definition of the family unit." In fact, Chick-fil-A reportedly donated nearly $2 million towards religious groups that oppose gay marriage in 2010 alone.

The comments clearly didn't sit well with Helms ... who tweeted, "Chick-Fil-A doesn't like gay people? So lame. Hate to think what they do to the gay chickens! Lost a loyal fan."

Helms ain't alone ... the gay rights campaign NOH8 -- supported by stars like Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan and the Kardashians -- has also called for a Chick-fil-A boycott.

The previous names mentioned in this co called "boycott" is not mainstream America. these people are among the most dysfunctional group of people that do not display any sound principles of righteousness. The mentioning of their names makes the boycott seem "worthless."

He probably didn't eat Chick-fil-a anyway, due to the fact that the company is a Christian based company and that it must adhere to its core values of belief. the company hasn't changed its stance but rather, stood by its values.

It's a great comfort to eat there with normal people.

I think your show should be boycotted for being ANTI-NORMAL. Chik-Fil-A is one of the best fast food restaurants out there, not because they are anti-gay. That just happens to be an added bonus.

I support Chick-Fil-A 100& and any other company that stands up to the current politically correct Pro-Gay Marriage agenda. Chick-Fil-A has long promoted traditional Christian and family values, I hope they won't be kowtowed into issuing an apology like so many other companies afraid to lose a few dollars.

I worked at Chick Fil A when I was a kid. I met Dan Cathy and I thought he was gay. He is married with kids, but I'd swear he is in closet. Too afraid to come out because of his christian beliefs.

I think it's interesting that the people listed as supporting his sentiments appear to have lives filled with chaos. Why on earth would we think of them as making wise decisions.

why must we, "mainstream America," bow to the threats of any movement? If Ed and the rest do not want to eat at Chick...cool! This is America. Let those that want socialism move to another place on this planet.

And just as many people GO there because of the owner's beliefs as will not. Do you think a handful of liberal f-tards boycotting their business would have any impact? Have you ever eaten there? Always a line, always packed. Oh and please .. I wouldn't want to eat anywhere Kim Kardashian ate for fear of getting an STD off her food tray.
