Burger King takes shot at Chick-Fil-A, will donate cash from new hen sandwich to LGBTQ group

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Burger King shot a chance at Chick-Fil-A during Pride month and will donate money from its new chicken sandwich to the Human Rights Campaign, the world’s largest LGBTQ civil rights organization.

On Thursday, the company tweeted that for every “Ch’King” sandwich sold in June, 40 cents will be donated to the human rights campaign. The company will donate up to $ 250,000.

Burger King has also scrutinized Chick-Fil-A by saying that money will be donated “even on Sundays” – on a day when Chick-Fil-A is closed.

Chick-Fil-A has come under fire in the past for donating money to anti-LGBTQ organizations. In 2019, the restaurant chain said it would no longer donate to these organizations.
