Chick-fil-A

Cops Called at Kiss-In Event

Drama at the Chick-fil-A same sex "Kiss-In" event in Hollywood ... TMZ has learned the chicken joint called police today claiming the MEDIA was harassing its employees.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the Chick-fil-A staff wasn't bothered by the pro-gay marriage event taking place inside the restaurant, but felt the media was being too aggressive in trying to get commentary from Chick-fil-A employees.

Cops responded to the scene, but by the time officers arrived ... both sides had already reached some sort of truce.

In other words, they kissed and made up.

Talked to a friend in Wisconsin... the Chik-Fil-A near her only had 1 protesting couple. They got one clap from a non-CFA customer. Most eww'ed them. After what could be described as the most awkwardly amateur first time kiss... they left. She said it was actually embarrassing. Especially the media coverage. They were two teenaged girls who looked so scared to kiss each other, they were probably "fake" gays trying to get on TV. However, she said one guy got it right. These people are hypocrites. They want everyone to accept their beliefs and opinions, but don't want to show the same tolerance for any opinion that doesn't agree with theirs. Its hypocritical. And again... I don't care if you're gay, straight, or extraterrestrial. You shouldn't be sucking face in public. There are kids around. Kids are exposed to enough garbage.

"Marriage: This grand struggle over one word has ever put symbolism over substance, sentiment over sense, "respectability" over true self-respect. What might have been an effort to win legal respect for a range of human relationships was instead made a "gay issue." By gay people themselves -- finding it "strategic" to play oppressed victims.

If the Mo's hate this place so much why don't THEY start one called GAY FIL A for cripessakes. WAHH WAH WAH... oh and another thing. Notice they only went to like ONE store or restaurant in Cali while the counter protest the other day turned out MILLIONS AND MILLIONS. AGAIN the MSM try to build up the gay community larger and more important than the 1% of the population they represent really are in the real world.

Okay, I understand a lot of you don't support gays, but is bashing them and calling them disgusting going to help? The fact is if we all respect each other, whether we agree with each others beliefs or not, things would be better. We all need to learn that God wants everyone to be loved. Being a Gay man that is Catholic, I believe all our equal and loved by God.

TMZ is the biggest hypocrite of all. After this post I'm deleting the tmz app from my phone and will never visit this site again. For one tmz caused part of this with there Cyber bullying of celebs who eat at Chick-fil-a. Posting a pic of someone eating a chicken sandwich with the caption " Supports Anti Gay business," is straight cyber bullying. Its an abuse of media power and has turned tmz into a blog rather then a credible media outlet.
2nd, as with everyone else I don't want to see anyone making out in public. The people there Wed. were civilly eating, not trying to be a menace
Last, there is no gay hating going on a Chick-fil-a. This is all because the owner believes a marriage should be between a man and a woman. I know for a fact there are more then 1 gay worker at the Chick-fil-a that was tagged up this morning.

I have no qualms with gay or lesbians but staging a kiss in is childish and is one of the reasons some people do have certain feelings about gays. Making out in public no one wants to watch straight or gay. unfortunately the gay community doesn't get this . they would have made a better protest by choosing to support kentucky fried chicken or whatever restaurant against chick filet for the day as opposed to making it sexual by a kiss in which turned alot of people off not because they're gay but again who wants to watch A NY couple making out in public. You turned more people off by this behavior than you gained sympathy.

Most people probably agree that a real marriage should be between a man and a woman but they tolerate the Gay communities views. Get over it then and don't eat there if you don't agree with this company's views. Go eat a high quality Chicken McNugget from McDonalds and shut up! ( Or a FISH sandwich ). Lol
