A self-described Democratic digital strategist and Gen-Z activist, who attends an Ivy League school (of course,) is proposing that consumers abandon Chick-fil-A permanently rather than just during Pride Month in June.
Consumers don’t appear to be receptive to going along with a banty boycott, however.
