SPRINGFIELD, VA - JULY 26: The signs of a Chick-fil-A are seen July 26, 2012 in Springfield, Virginia. The recent comments on supporting traditional marriage which made by Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy has sparked a big debate on the issue. (Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images)

While some folks in America can’t live without Chick-fil-A, it seems the folks in the UK aren’t as obsessed with the fast food chicken chain. Chick-Fil-A opened its first-ever UK restaurant in Reading, England barely two weeks ago, and it’s already set to close.

It’s not that people don’t like the chain’s product, it’s more that they don’t like what the company stands for, with Chick-fil-A getting a lot of push back over their views on LGBTQ+ rights. Since its opening, LGBTQ+ rights groups have been protesting the chain, due to the company’s donations to anti-LGBTQ rights groups.

As a someone who is part of the LGBTQ community, I do struggle with this. I wish I was strong enough to take a stand against Chick-Fil-A, but their chicken is so good. Now that they have added macaroni and cheese to the menu, I’m really screwed.
