Burger King Shades Chick-Fil-A With LGBTQ Support

The new chicken sandwich from Burger King is trolling Chick-fil-A and we're there for it!

The new chicken sandwich from Burger King is trolling Chick-fil-A and we're there for it!

Oh, the shade of it all.

For years now, many in the LGBTQ community have boycotted Chick-fil-A after reports showed the company’s CEO and executives donated over and over again to anti-LGBTQ groups that work to opposed queer rights.

Now, Burger King is not only showing SUPPORT for the LGBTQ community, but throwing some subtle shade at Chick-fil-A while doing so.

From USA Today:

Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy was identified last week by The Daily Beast as a donor to the National Christian Charitable Foundation, which has a history of funding opposition to The Equality Act.

Burger King, which recently launched the Ch’King sandwich, tweeted Thursday it will donate 40 cents for every chicken sandwich sold in June (Pride month) up to $250,000, or 625,000 sandwiches, to The Human Rights Campaign.

“This is a community we love dearly and have proudly supported over the years, so we couldn’t miss an opportunity to take action and help shine a light on the important conversation happening,” a Burger King spokesperson said in an email statement to USA TODAY.

You’ll note in Burger King’s tweet below the company notes that it would continue its donations “even on Sundays.” Chick-fil-A has a long-standing policy of being closed on Sundays.

In a playful back-and-forth, the Whopper’s Twitter account seems to be a bit jealous of the new chicken sandwich LOL…

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau didn’t hold back during his first virtual meeting with President Joe Biden today.

From the Washington Post:

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau greeted Biden like an old friend, took a tacit swipe at former president Donald Trump and said he was glad to have a partner on climate change again during the leaders’ first virtual bilateral meeting.

“U.S. leadership has been sorely missed over the past years,” Trudeau said, referring to his strained relationship with Trump.

This was Biden’s first bilateral meeting with a foreign leader, signaling the importance of America’s relationship with its neighbor to the north. “I look forward to seeing you in person in the future,” Biden told Trudeau. “The United States has no closer friend than Canada.”

Harry Styles Shades Candace Owens In Expert Fashion

Popstar and LGBTQ ally Harry Styles threw expert shade Candace Owens’ way after she criticized his recent Vogue cover shoot.

Last month, the 26-year-old One Direction singer posed for the venerable fashion magazine in a Gucci jacket layered over a dress.

The oh-so-conservative Ms. Owens was not impressed by the dress.

“There is no society that can survive without strong men,” Owens tweeted. “The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack.”

“Bring back manly men,” she hissed in closing.

Today, Styles posted a photo of himself wearing a light blue suit complete with fluffy shirt sleeves while eating a banana.

His caption was brilliant in its simplicity: “Bring back manly men.”

The post has received over 6.5 million ‘Likes’ in less than a day.

Owens reportedly commented on Styles’ post but it, to be honest, was too hard for me to scroll through all the love sent his way in the comments. Pretending to be oblivious to his sarcasm, she wrote, “Thank God you agree.”

Unable to resist her ugly nature, though, she threw in another catty remark writing, “He looks great! He just doesn’t look masculine.”

In his Vogue cover interview, Styles shared his view of exploring the possibilities of fashion and referenced pop music royalty as his inspirations.

“The people that I looked up to in music—Prince and David Bowie and Elvis and Freddie Mercury and Elton John—they’re such showmen,” he told Vogue. “As a kid it was completely mind-blowing. Now I’ll put on something that feels really flamboyant, and I don’t feel crazy wearing it. I think if you get something that you feel amazing in, it’s like a superhero outfit. Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with.”

Regarding the nasty tilt Owens clearly assigned to her conservative bent, it’s notable that Styles has been vocal about his support for all of his fans.

At several concerts in the past, he’s carried rainbow flags and declared his love for every fan: “If you are black, if you are white, if you are gay, if you are straight, if you are transgender – whoever you are, whoever you want to be, I support you and I love every single one of you.”
