Twitter CEO Dorsey Gets Backlash For Eating at Chick-fil-A

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey received some harsh backlash Sunday for tweeting about his stop at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Los Angeles.

Dorsey posted a screen shot of his use of the fast food restaurant's mobile app, seemingly boasting about a 10 percent discount he received with his purchase.

Members of the LGBTQ community, the media and other liberals immediately called him out for patronizing the chain, whose CEO Dan Cathy is a known critic of gay marriage.

And the critics weren't so subtle in mentioning Dorsey's flub came during Pride month.

After the backlash, Dorsey expressed regret for eating at Chick-fil-A, responding to Soledad O'Brien by saying, "You're right. Completely forgot about their background."
