The Muppets won’t be chomping down on Chick-fil-A chicken sandwiches any longer. CEO Lisa Henson is a strong supporter of marriage equality and decided to end the relationship with the food-maker.
In a Facebook note, The Jim Henson Company announced that will no longer partner with Chick-fil-A because of its anti-gay policies:
The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors. Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD. (http://www.glaad.org/)
