The store manager of a Chick-fil-A in Torrance says the restaurant was targeted by vandals overnight.
KNX 1070′s John Brooks reports a message that read Tastes Like Hate with a painting of a cow was discovered early Friday morning at the store located at 18200 Hawthorne Boulevard.
Workers quickly painted over the graffiti as Torrance police officers were called out to the scene sometime around 6:40 a.m., according to police.
Franchise owner Cole Donahoo said they never talk about politics, marriage or religion at the restaurant they just serve food to anyone who comes in.
We just dont even discuss that here at the workplace, said Donahoo. Our goal is to serve great food with courteous service in a clean, hospitable environment.
Friday also marks National Same Sex Kiss Day, which has been organized by gay and lesbian supporters to show Chick-fil-A Our Thanks For Their Support Of Love, Equality, And The Real Definition Of Marriage, according to the events Facebook page.
Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy has said he believes in the Biblical interpretation of marriage being between a man and a woman. The chain has also reportedly donated millions to anti-gay marriage groups in recent years, according to Equality Matters.
During the kiss-in planned for 5 p.m. Friday, gay and straight couples are encouraged to go to any Chick-fil-A location and take a picture kissing.
On Wednesday, thousands ate at Chick-fil-A locations around the country after Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee called for a national Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day to show support for Cathy.
However, Huckabee told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO that freedom of speech not same-sex marriage is at the core of this controversy.
This really isnt about the chicken; its not even about the product. Its just about whether the person who is the executive of a company can still speak his mind, said Huckabee. We expect that every day from the CEOs of Apple and Starbucks and Ben & Jerrys, and it ought to be the same set of rules applied to a person who is a conservative, and in this case, an evangelical Christian.
The Torrance Police Department is investigating the vandalism.
Well for one it looks to darn neat not rushed
Look at the spin....it wasn’t vandalized ahead of the gay kiss-in, it was vandalized after the successful CFA Appreciation Day. They slant the news with impunity.
It’s not about hate, it’s not about chicken, it’s all about forcing the American people to accept an aberrant, unnatural, unsanitary and immoral lifestyle as being the norm.
AFAIK, Laz doesn’t hit vegans.
I’d hope not. That would be in bad taste.
Yeah,but the one inside Del Amo Mall down the street on Hawthorne has been around for 20 plus years.
Closer and drive-through is much more convenient.
It looks like Kristallnacht for anyone who
believes in the creator of the universe.
I can only hope so! I REALLY enjoy ticking PETA brats off! I live behind enemy lines is Austin. I get a LOT of practice ;-)
I think that’s a gross exaggeration.
I also enjoyed a sixty min conversation with fellow patriots at the Torrance CFA on Wed. Everyone was sooooo hateful weren’t they? (sarc)
I thought it was pretty good too. Looks like they used a stencil--speed and accuracy.
Perhaps only with a two-by-four? :=)
I’m filling out a top secret clearance form. Under hair color there’s a drop down menu. Choices included purple, orange, green, candy-striped...nowhere did it say, “partially balding and lying about the color of what’s left.”
Who was it that said PETA stood for People Eating Tasty Animals?
Seriously, anywhere stupid tools gather, you will find some sort of national socialist organization willing to use them.
the artist has come forward
I hope he is currently under arrest.
Um hmmm. So Tea Partiers, get those spray cans ready and match over to White House. It is, after all, a protest!
