TUCSON - People packed into local Chick-Fil-A stores Wednesday for what was called a "buycott."
Former Arkansas Governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee declared today Chick-Fil-A appreciation day after an executive with the restaurant chain publicly opposed same sex marriage.
Gay rights groups called for a boycott, but that didn't stop hundreds of people to support the company after the controversial comments.
"I just wanted to show that I support traditional amrriage just like the CEO does," said customer Lori Jorg. "I think there's just a lot of people in our country who are looking for any kind of avenue to be able to say yes I support what's right, what's good, what's ordained by God through the Bible and I think that's what we're wanting to say today."
Not everyone agreed.
"I feel like these people have a right to express themselves the way they want to support this fellow," said Norm Meader or Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. "I probably won't be eating at Chick-Fil-A that's for sure."
