Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy
Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy took to Twitter following Wednesday's Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage.
The tweet, however, was deleted shortly after it went public. It read: "Sad day for our nation; founding fathers would be ashamed of our gen. to abandon wisdom of the ages re: cornerstone of strong societies."
Chick-fil-A released a statement after it hit the social stratosphere.
"Dan Cathy, like everyone in this country, has his own views. However, Chick-fil-A is focused on providing great tasting food and genuine hospitality to everyone," the company said.
Last summer, Cathy made a comment that Chick-fil-A is "very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit." The comments caused a backlash against the company.
