    This guy is a total jerk off.. Why would a Mayor get involved in a private matter.


    Mayor Bill de Blasio and boycott-urging Queens councilman fed up with Chick-fil-A
    Chick-fil-A has opened two outposts in Manhattan and is reportedly planning a new location in Queens this fall, but city councilman Danny Dromm and Mayor Bill de Blasio and are speaking out against the chain, because of a top exec’s public stance against same-sex marriage in 2012.

    The chain, which confirmed to us recently that it plans to operate 10 to 12 eateries in the metropolitan New York City area by 2017, is reportedly looking to open up one in Queens at the Queens Center Mall.

    But, DNA Info reports that city Councilman Danny Dromm, who represents Jackson Heights and Elmhurst, where the mall is located, is calling for a boycott.

    Dan Cathy, who was vocal about his opposition to gay marriage, and to a charity linked to the restaurant which donated money toward thwarting LGBT rights.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio, asked about the issue at an unrelated press conference Tuesday, also expressed displeasure about the chain’s presence, but said they have a right to be in the city.

    “What the ownership of Chick-fil-A has said is wrong....I’m certainly not going to patronize them and I wouldn’t urge any other New Yorker to patronize them. But they do have a legal right," de Blasio said.

    Through a spokeswoman, the company issued a statement to New York Business Journal about the elected officials' remarks:

    "The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender," the statement said. "We are a restaurant company comprised of 80,000 individuals who represent different backgrounds and beliefs, and we are all focused on offering great food, service and hospitality."

    Just when you think De Blasio can't be anymore of a jerkoff. I'm sure the ceo's of McDonald's and all the other fast food places have absolutely no controversial opinions. I'm sure they all tow the progressive line.

    Well the Attorney General of Texas (Ken Paxton) is starting a legal review of Target's bathroom policy so I guess there are nuts on both sides.

    I have no issue with LGBT. I would be just as passed if it was any other matter. A mayor has no business asking people to boycott a business, especially when his citizen might work there.


    This borders on communism. You'll like what I like or else.. except he's just a shit mayor.


    The people will decided and have decided.. They like the chicken..

    Yawn. He has massive problems with the police department and other things. So he's doing what most slimy politicians do under the circumstances -- deflect, spin, deflect.

    This will likely help CFA a little in the short term and have insignificant impact in the long term.

    yeah, good idea.. start attacking a growing, vibrant organization generating tax revenues in a city that's losing its middle class tax base. Wonder how he'd react to all those anti- LBGT started regulations advocates starting campaigns to boycott all the businesses that are actively supporting them.

    NYC Is sliding back to the bad old days. Police morale is at an all time low, the subways are a cesspool, quality of life crimes are on the rise. I guess we can look forward to Central Park wilding this summer. We have a crooked Asshat for a Mayor.
