Group protests at Chick-fil-A food truck in DC

Posted: Updated:

The new Chick-fil-A food truck in downtown Washington, D.C. is drawing protests from a gay rights group.

Members of the Human Rights Campaign turned out at 12th and G Streets in Northwest D.C. at lunchtime Thursday with signs and chants, saying, "Hey, hey, ho, ho, homophobia has got to go."

The demonstrators are reacting to remarks made by the president of the fast food chain in a recent interview with a religious media outlet, saying the company supports "the biblical definition of the family unit."

A campaign spokesman said protestors are not calling for a boycott, but just trying to raise public awareness.

People in line told FOX 5 they are aware the chain is a Christian company that closes its stores on Sundays. They said the chicken is good and those who also support gay rights said they didn't mind that the company has a different opinion.
