Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey ignited a backlash online for posting that he had eaten at Chick-fil-A during Pride Month.
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio has now publicly taken a stand to support Chick-fil-A.
“This time, the PC police have gone too far,” reads a fundraising email that was sent from Rubio to supporters on Wednesday.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio is entering the latest Chick-fil-A controversy.

Last weekend, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was criticized after posting a screenshot of a Chick-fil-A order to Twitter. Facing backlash for posting about eating at the fast-food chain during Pride Month, Dorsey said he “completely forgot” about the company’s background and its executives’ history of opposition to gay marriage.

This apology rubbed many on the right the wrong way.

“This lunacy has gone too far,” Rubio tweeted on Monday.

This lunacy has gone too far. The CEO of @Twitter bullied into apology for patronizing @ChickfilA because owners support “biblical definition of marriage”. Holding a personal view taught by mainstream Christianity is now boycott worthy. https://t.co/EnChlPBStc via @cbsmoneywatch

.@ChickfilA isn’t denying service to anyone. But if you eat there you must be attacked by the twitter mob b/c owner agrees with what his church teaches about marriage? Why would twitter mob stop at biz owned by Christians? Who is next? Christian schools? Christian charities?

The message from latest @ChickfilA incident is this: “Your church can still teach traditional marriage (which by the way we will still label as a bigoted belief) but don’t you dare repeat it outside of church or we will come after you, your business and/or your job.”
