Hate Replacement: Chick-fil-A teams up with Berenstain Bears for new kids meal toys…
In the wake of the Jim Henson company and Muppets severing their ties with Chick after their anti-gay views were made public, The Berenstain Bears have moved in as the replacement for their hate filed kids meals.
Afraid of what will obviously be a big backlash, Berenstain Co. has already released a statement explaining the situation:
“Our publisher, HarperCollins, is marketing several of their Berenstain Bears titles through a kids’ meal promotion at Chick-Fil-A scheduled for August. This program was in development for over a year. We were unaware of any controversy involving Chick-Fil-A until July 25th.
The Berenstain family does not at this time have control over whether this program proceeds or not. We hope those concerned about this issue will direct their comments toward HarperCollins and Chick-Fil-A.”
Sincerely, The Berenstain Family.
Chick has enough money to produce and market their own line of kids bible beating toys, which i think would be better fit for them. As for the Berenstain bears, start hitting up HapperCollins and sharing your displeasure.
