Here at LI, we’ve long covered the left’s irrational and intolerant protests of and attempts to shut down / bar the opening of Chick-fil-A restaurants across the nation. The popular restaurant chain recently opened their first restaurant in the UK and now, following protests by LGBT groups, are closing it.
Chick-fil-A asserts that they had mutually agreed to a six-month lease, a lease that the mall has decided against extending. So while the LGBT crowd are crowing, the restaurant itself will remain open until the end of its lease.
The first Chick-fil-A in the United Kingdom announced it would be shutting down in six months, just days after the popular American fast-food chain made its debut in the country, amid pressures from gay rights activists protesting the chain for contributing millions of dollars to anti-LGBTQ groups.
Protestors swarmed The Oracle shopping center on Saturday holding a sign saying “GET THE CHICK OUT Say NO to bigotry and hatred on your High Street.”
The store opened its “pilot” location on Oct. 10 in Reading, which is about an hour and a half drive from London. A mall spokesperson said concerns raised by activists about the chain have made them determine “the right thing to do” is not to extend the restaurant’s lease beyond the “six-month pilot period,” according to reports by BBC.
