Gotta love social media these days…
Chick-Fil-A is currently under fire for a recent tweet their social media account sent out on Friday.
According to the New York Post, a black customer asked a question about spicy chicken nuggets:
“Grilled spicy deluxe but still noooo spicy nuggets.”
The chicken sandwich chain responded:
“Your community will be the first to know if spicy items are added to the permanent menu, Don!”
The response garnered a ton of responses, sparking that it may have been racially charged:
However, Chick-Fil-A responded with a statement, noting that they were referring to the local chains in their area, and had no racially charged intent behind the message:
“The response was a poor choice of words but was not intended in any way to be insensitive or disrespectful.
We often use the term ‘community’ in a broader sense to talk about places where we operate restaurants and serve the surrounding community.”
Don himself chimed in later saying that he just wants some damn spicy nuggets:
