Saudi Arabia closes down new Chick-Fil-A location
RIYADH—Chick-Fil-A executives were delighted when Riyadh development authorities invited the restaurant to open a new location in the city. They love serving delicious chicken sandwiches and spreading Chick-Fil-A cheer wherever they're invited, even if they disagree with the worldviews, religions, and lifestyles of certain areas.
Unknown to them, however, Saudi Arabia only asked Chick-Fil-A to come because they thought they were supposed to be homophobic, anti-LGBT, spreading hate and fear of gay people wherever they went.
King Salman said he thought Chick-Fil-A was a perfect fit for Saudi Arabia.
But they ran their restaurant for a solid three months here and never once did they stone a gay person, throw a gay person off a roof, or even use anti-LGBT slurs against them.
King Salman was infuriated and he closed the restaurant.
