Californian Chick-Fil-A fans staking out a chance to win free food from a brand new Orange County Chick-Fil-A were decamped early today when protestors gathered to speak out against the chain's COO Dan Cathy's recent statements against gay marriage rights. Representatives from LGBTQ youth organization Youth Empowered To Act gathered at the new location, toting signs that read, "EAT MOR EQUALITY" and "Closets are for clothes." Can't marriage equality and free sandwiches just get along, y'all?

Antoine Dodson, he of hide-yo-kids fame, seems to think so: in a YouTube video, the openly gay internet celebrity told legions of disappointed fans that he eats Chick-Fil-A all the time. Says Dodson: "I'm not supporting the hatin' man in charge, I'm supporting them hard workers in the kitchen."
