Burger King’s new chicken sandwich is like Chick-fil-A’s… only more gay.
The latest comer to the Chicken Fast Food Wars has his political activism, pledging to support America’s largest LGBT rights group with their Ch’King sandwich.
“6 / 3-6 / 30 with every Ch’King sold, BK will contribute 40 ₵ to the human rights campaign (maximum donation of $ 250,000),” the official Burger King Twitter account tweeted.

“The #ChKing says LGBTQ + rights! The channel boasted of rainbow flag emojis.
Apparently, every fast food chain has introduced a new chicken sandwich over the past couple of years in response to Chick-fil-A’s meteoric rise in popularity, with some almost imitating Chick-fil-A.
In another tweet, Burger King took an even less veiled shot at Chick-fil-A, whom gay activists have boycotted and denounced for years for his political actions.
“During #pride month (even on Sundays), your craving for a chicken sandwich can be good!” Burger King wrote.
Chick-fil-A is famous for its closure on Sundays, which is part of its tradition as a southern regional channel founded by evangelical Christians.
Although the restaurant itself had not made political donations in years, roughly coinciding with its nationwide push, it had frequently supported groups critical of gay rights.
CEO Dan Cathy has also personally donated to a number of groups the Liberals attack as homophobic.
