Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey thought he was simply saving money by using Chick-fil-A’s app to get a 10 percent discount on his meal. What he didn’t realize was that he was about to chow down on a delicious hatewich instead of a sandwich.

At least, that’s the way some LGBT supporters put it. When Dorsey shared his Chick-fil-A savings on Twitter, outrage erupted.

“This is an interesting company to boost during Pride month, @jack,” wrote news anchor Soledad O’Brien.

The backlash was so loud that Dorsey apologized, responding directly to O’Brien by writing, "You're right, Completely forgot about their background," according to SFGate.

But many Chick-fil-A fans, including gay customers, brilliantly defended the Christian-owned company by laying out simple logic.

Twitter user Victoria Brownworth asked, “Why is Twitter boosting a notoriously anti-gay company during #PrideMonth and an outspokenly Christian company during #Ramadan?”

To which Luke McKay replied, “No doubt you mean well, but you should probably be more concerned about Pride Month being celebrated same month as Ramadan.”

"He can tweet whatever he wants.. what are you going to do? Report his account?" pointed out @krystal337.

Analysts believe Chick-fil-A will become the third-largest U.S. fast-food restaurant in sales by 2020, Fox News reported, despite being closed on Sundays. Only McDonald’s and Subway rank ahead of it.
