Jane Lynch: ‘F*ck Chick-fil-A!’

Lesbian Glee star has pointed words for anti-gay fast food chain

Jane Lynch: ‘F*ck Chick-fil-A!’
06 August 2012

Jane Lynch was host of the Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne Barr over the weekend and couldn’t resist taking a jab at a fast food chain that doesn’t think marriages like hers to Dr. Lara Embry should be allowed to happen.

Before introducing the evening’s honoree, The Emmy-winning Glee star took not of the female roasters on hand including Carrie Fisher, Katey Sagal and Ellen Barkin and cracked: ‘This show is serving up more old spoiled hens than a Chick-Fil-A.’

Then she added a real zinger.

‘Oh, that reminds me… Fuck Chick-fil-A.’

Last month, Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy said the Atlanta-based company was ‘guilty as charged’ for backing ‘the biblical definition of a family’ and therefore being against same-sex marriage.

His comments unleashed a flood of criticism from politicians and gay rights groups and put renewed focus on the approximately $5 million the company’s charitable arm has donated to anti-gay organizations in recent years.
