Well, that is going to irritate their homophobic fans.

After courting controversy for years, the fast-food chain Chick-fil-A will no longer fund two organizations that have historically opposed same-sex marriage.
The Atlanta-based restaurant chain has come under fire from LGBTQ+ activists for reportedly donating millions of dollars to two Christian charities: The Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
The company told ABC News Monday that it was refocusing its donations to groups centered on “hunger, homelessness and education” beginning in the new year.
“Beginning in 2020 the Chick-fil-A Foundation will introduce a more focused giving approach, donating to a smaller number of organizations working exclusively in the areas of hunger, homelessness and education,” Chick-fil-A said in a statement Monday.
“We have also proactively disclosed our 2018 tax filing and a preview of 2019 gifts to date on chick-fil-afoundation.org,” the statement added. “The intent of charitable giving from the Chick-fil-A Foundation is to nourish the potential in every child.”
I guess that includes little gay children now as well.
For those who do not think that public pressure and boycotts actually work, this is evidence that yes they do.
