When Chick-fil-A President Dan Kathy made his anti-gay statement, he should have known that he would be taken to task for it. Jon Stewart skewered the fast food chain earlier this week, and now Stephen Colbert is piling on.
During his show on Thursday night, Colbert mocked Chick-fil-A’s stance on gay marriage.
Colbert noted that Oreo and JC Penney have come out in support of LGBT equality, then played clips of Chick-fil-A’s opposition.
“No surprise Chick-fil-A supports traditional marriage, unlike KFC’s Doubledown,” Colbert said. “Two chicken breasts rubbing up against each other. That is nothing but a lesbian fantasy snack.”
Colbert then mentioned The Muppets and the Jim Henson Company’s decision to cut ties with Chick-fil-A.
“No shock there,” Colbert quipped. “The Muppets have been pro-gay for years. How else do you explain two bitchy old men going to the theater together.”
Colbert also mocked Chick-fil-A’s sad and pathetic impersonation of a 16 year old girl on Facebook, complete with a stock photo of a teenage girl as a way to defend their bigotry incognito.
Here’s the video via Comedy Central.

Perhaps Chick-fil-A should stick to making chicken sandwiches instead of making asses of themselves.
