Chick-fil-A's statement continued: "When we combine our unique backgrounds and experiences with a culture of belonging, we can discover new ways to strengthen the quality of care we deliver: to customers, to the communities we serve and to the world. We understand that getting Better at Together means we learn better, care better, grow better and serve better. Chick-fil-A, Inc.'s commitment to being Better at Together means embedding Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in everything we do."
On Tuesday, Chik-fil-A revealed it was appointing Erick McReynolds to serve as the new vice president of DEI, prompting many furious reactions on Twitter from conservatives who say the fast-food giant has officially "gone woke," per The New York Post.
The restaurant was at the center of controversy in 2012, when the restaurant's chief executive officer, Dan T. Cathy, who is now the chairman of the company, made a series of public statements that appeared to oppose same-sex marriage. Now, the restaurant has caved on its values, going all-in on DEI talking points.
It was recently revealed that the company's chairman purchased "shoe-shine" packages for its store managers, which was apparently meant to remind them to feel "contrition, humility, shame and embarrassment" for the history of slavery throughout the US.
A video shared on social media showed the awkward exchange between the company's chairman and a black man on the stage of what appears to be Passion City Church. Cathy takes the brush and scrubs the man's chooses, and then gives him a hug in an apparent expression of remorse for the history of slavery throughout the US.
The fast food chain is the latest in a series of companies that have folded to the woke mob, including Nike, Bud Light, and Target.
