This comes under the heading of embarrassing, but funny enough to post. Back at the beginning of October, I got in a fight on Twitter with this dumb bitch who took issue with me calling out Chick-Fil-A for being a company run by hateful asshats. I posted this to twitter:
I’m not into politics, really, but I do think it’s a shame when companies use their fat wads of cash to screw over regular folks (through buying legislation or supporting hate groups or whatever else – it’s all the same to me). So I mentioned it. Chick-Fil-A had just opened a Hollywood location and I wanted to try their food again (it was probably 1994 last time I ate there). No big deal. I mean, plenty of people still shop at Target, right?
Anyway, on the morning of the 2nd, after coming out of Bootie, I saw that someone had replied to my Chick-Fil-A post. Below is the whole stupid story. I don’t even want to write any more till you’ve read it.
Here it is:
I know I should never have gotten involved, but something about her barely-literate response got under my skin. I was tired, I had a long day of flying ahead of me, and I HAD JUST COME OUT OF BOOTIE. One of the things I love about Bootie is how tolerant of everyone they are – not just gays and lesbians, but they also don’t have some “you’re not cool enough” velvet rope, there’s no “list” that you have to be on just to earn the privilege of dancing on their dirty floor. So I was in no mood to stand in the parking lot of my favorite club and be insulted by a half-wit for pointing out that a company was involved in shitty stuff.
So it began. The only other editorializing I’ll do here is that the five tweets in a row from the Hootie all happened while I was on the plane and made me realize that I was dealing with a first-rate whackjob who had more time than sense and against whom I’d never make any headway, especially since I had shit to do for the next few weeks. So I tried to sum up and get out while still insulting her at the same time. It’s a challenge to argue in 160 characters. Had I not been in the back of a cab and running on almost no sleep, maybe things would have been better. No promises, though.
Anyway, thought you might be interested in reading some absurd shit. If you go to her profile, note that this chick has quit tweeting again, which is rad. I was her ~10th tweet in 2 years, but something about my disdain for the pathetic folks at CFA got her dander up and she got all in a tizzy. Ah well.
