Jim Henson company parts ways with Chick-Fil-A
SQUEE!

Last week, Chick-Fil-A president Dan Cathy confessed what many already knew; that when it came to being Anti-Gay Marriage, the company was 'guilty as charged'.

Yesterday, The Jim Henson Company commented. From the Official FaceBook page:

The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors.  Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD.  (http://www.glaad.org/)

Not sure if this ought to be posted here, but it's nice to see the JHC taking a stand; as a company that creates so many characters to promote love and acceptance in so many ways, I'd hope for nothing less.

Donating the money CFA gives them to GLAAD is a nice touch as well. :D

This story made my day!

Aw, thanks for posting this! I forgot to. XD

Not that I knew about that but I'm happy with that decision.

That is some epic news, right there. <3

Jim Henson Company = Awesome

It made me happy to hear they backed out/dropped the deal with them. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that in a few years that CF is going belly-up because of their bigotry. Imho, would serve them right.
