Chick-Fil-A has clarified a tweet that raised some eyebrows recently.
When a tweet came in saying, “Grilled spicy deluxe but still nooooo spicy nuggets,” the restaurant responded with, “Your community will be the first to know if spicy items are added to the permanent menu!” That led to curious responses wondering exactly what “community” they were referring to and an explanation. Clarification came fast, when Chick-Fil-A’s team admitting it was a “poor choice of words,” and stressed there was “no intent to be disrespectful or insensitive.” What was meant was the “community” as in “places where we operate restaurants and serve the surrounding community.”
I don't know about you, but I refer to my neighborhood where I live as a community. I don't think of ethnicities or anything else. We're all living amongst one another. BUT clearly I'm out of touch now I suppose.
