Chick-fil-A opened its first location in the United Kingdom in early October.

A little more than a week later, the British shopping center leasing the location has already said it will not extend the restaurant’s six-month lease, BBC reported Friday.

The Oracle shopping center in Reading faced pressure from a local LGBTQ rights group, Reading Pride, according to the BBC.

OOPs...just realized my post should have said “today,” not tomorrow. My local Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sundays.

Wow, great job CNBC with the misleading headline. The landlord cancelled their lease. CFA is not the one backing down to the SJW crowd

I remember a few years ago when the homosexuals claimed “we just want to be left alone.”

Who knew they were just a sorry collection of wacked out fascists? Wow. This shit is intolerable.

Still trying to figure what “rights” these letter people are whining about. I believe they have the same rights as anyone else.

I bet that’s actually in violation of Britain’s hate speech laws.

Just one more demonstration of the intolerant, totalitarian tactics of the left. And why did Chick-Fil-A make the investment in a new location with only a six month lease?

It’s their lose. It’s sad but almost every British friend or acquaintance I have is a “committed atheist.” Of course, I only know the London crowd.

They had better sign a lease for a much larger store after this story gets out.

They want their rights but deny it to others. Bunch of hypocrites.

I propose that one letter be added to LGBTQ. And that letter should be listed first. It’s the letter F, for fascist.

FLGBTQ.

In my lifetime I’ve seen the UK go from a proud lion to a whimpering, mewling pussy.

Chick-fil-A’s first UK location will close after pressure from LGBTQ rights group

Proper response would be 100% Tariff on all Limey goods sold or shipped to the US, Just to see how quick those Limeys would discover that shopping center "made a mistake" in failing to renew their lease.

So it's not closing tomorrow. They have six months to deide if this is working, and maybe buy their own building.

I probably won't ever visit the UK again, but it has more to do with the fact that they are so PC that it's painful. And the London acid attacks. There's that, too.

Traditional British Cuisine is inedible. Chick-fil-A couldn't help but to raise the standard.

The LGBTQ ‘community’ isn’t tolerant of people who think differently than they do...
