Airport Chick-fil-A: That’s Not How This Works! That’s Not How Any Of This Works!

As we’ve mentioned several times in the past, Joe and I are staunch supporters of the LGBTQ+ community. From donating to LGBTQ+ causes to working at and walking in Pride parades to supporting our friends at Gay Days at WDW, we’ve been there for our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender friends. Another case in point, Joe and I have not eaten at Chick-fil-A (CFA) in a dozen or more years because of their continuous corporate donations to organizations that are historically anti-LGBTQ+.

That being said, I frequently keep up to date on what the company is doing, in case they change on their social stance. Frankly, I used to ADORE their chicken nuggets and would love to go back to CFA if they had a social change of heart and took the money I spent on their food and gave it to organizations that helped my friends in the LGBTQ+ community, instead of ones that hurt them.

The lawsuit asks the court to permanently stop Melbourne’s aviation board from using the word “Orlando” in MLB’s name, advertising or promotional materials, to display a retraction statement on its website for at least one year and to pay damages and attorney’s fees.

The lawsuit states that, “By causing a likelihood of confusion, mistake and deception, MLB is inflicting irreparable harm on the goodwill symbolized by GOAA’s Orlando International Airport Trademark and the reputation for quality that it embodies.”

Friends, I live in Orlando and trust me when I say that MCO is making a mountain out of a molehill with this lawsuit. Here’s why…
