"What the ownership of Chick-fil-A has said is wrong," the mayor said during an unrelated press conference on Tuesday, per the report. "...I’m certainly not going to patronize them and I wouldn’t urge any other New Yorker to patronize them. But they do have a legal right."
Chick-fil-A, has long tried to keep its anti-LGBT past, well, in the past. Additionally, a company spokeswoman told DNAinfo, "The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect -- regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender." Chick-fil-A made similar statements when word spread of its plans to open in NYC.
