Chipotle Withdraws Boy Scout Support Because Of Gay Ban
The Mexican food chain has pulled out of a Utah event because of the Boy Scouts’ position banning gays.
“We believed that terminating the sponsorship and remaining consistent with our policy was the right thing to do, and we have reinforced our policy with the team that makes these decisions to try to prevent similar issues in the future,” the restaurant chain told ThinkProgress on Tuesday.
Chipotle planned to provide the Utah Boy Scouts with $4,200 worth of coupons for their annual “Scout-O-Rama” event, according to the The Associated Press. The restaurant chain has sponsored the event in the past.
