Skip to comments.Starbucks Appreciation Day by Gay/Lesbian fizzles

Gay/Lesbian community is blaming both FoxNews and Mike Huckabee for their failure. That is documented in stories by the New York Daily News and Los Angeles Times.
Of course, people may have been confused by the wording of the day: it was billed as Marriage Equality day. To the average person, what does Marriage Equality mean? Sounds like Double Speak.
Facebook is one source for this story.
National Marriage [promoted by Gays/Lesbians] Equality Day
Another is the Los Angeles Times.
New York Daily News is another:
Gay marriage battle moves from Chick-fil-A to Starbucks as supporters plan National Marriage Equality Day
As a post action report, just over 230,000 people were invited and just over 37,000 people went.
This is compared with the 600,000 that joined the Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day by liking the event on Facebook.
This event fizzled.
It probably with be George Washington Bush's fault, except he is no longer president.
Additionally, the Facebook page has discussion about this event, so I imagine their are some entertaining comments on this page -- provided one does not get sick skimming over the comments.
The homosexual sect didn’t rush out and save Starsmucks closing of fiscally insolvent stores...why would they think they’d do anything here?
I wonder if Romney ordered Starbucks today.
Maybe this is not breaking news, but it at least gives a source of info for people wondering what happened.
Hope I don't get banned...
Kiss of death looks like. I would not patronize a place where such a thing was being staged.
I read somewhere that Target was a big supporter of gay marriage and pro choice is that true do you know?
Unlike many here at FR, I do like Starbuck’s coffee. I avoided it like a plague yesterday. When I passed by a local Starbucks, the cars in the parking lot were about half what they usually would be.
does this make them:
The Kiss of Death!
(ba da bum, [rim shot])
“It probably with be George Washington Bush’s fault, except he is no longer president.”
Who is that, and when was this person POTUS?
No, I’m sorry I don’t know. If you find out, let me know, please.
What happened, did they fail to motivate a large portion of that .5% of the population who appreciates to go to Starbucks?
But I assume your post is sarcasm...
W. is missed...
Another good reason not to patronize Starbucks - not that we need one.
Starbucks’s has been losing profits for months. This already diffused and fizzled gay soiree isn’t going to help them.
Judging by the number of responses on Facebook. You could hold this event in a phone booth and still have lots of room to breathe and move around.
But it was all for naught.
On the side, Fox News supported the Chick-Fil-A because Mike HuckaBee's affiliation with them...
I love the coffee, too, but I’ve found other purveyors of this most necessary food-group. Make-ur-own.
It is Bush’s fault. /sarcasm
Glad you avoided the place - you weren't alone in that choice... Have you tried McDonalds coffee? It's better than Starbucks and half the price - only a good choice if you're getting 'to go' - other than that stay with Starbucks.
homosexual failures are reported with the same skill as clinton cattle future losses.
So Starbucks refused to support the Gay/Lesbian community on this, according to this article.
So I find this stance by Starbucks interesting...
