  • Twitter CEO shamed for eating Chick-fil-A during Pride Month

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Sunday caved to social media backlash after he tweeted support for Chick-fil-a during LGBT Pride Month.

The rumpus began when Dorsey tweeted a screen grab from the fast food restaurant's mobile app showing a 10 percent discount he received. It was the kind of tweet that could be easily ignored - if, perhaps, it didn't happen to be Pride Month, and if Chick-fil-A's own CEO wasn't known for his opposition to gay marriage.

Dorsey was quick to concede her point.

Dorsey directly responded to O'Brien's tweet, noting how he had "completely forgot about their background".

Chick fil-A has previously been linked to anti-LGBTQ views.

Another Twitter user added: 'You must love the taste of bigotry!'

In 2012, CEO Dan Cathy, the CEO of the late founder, sparked a boycott after he said same-sex marriage was "inviting God's judgment on our nation", and that the company was very "supportive of the family - the biblical definition of the family unit".

Since then, though, the company has steered clear of such debates and has not commented on LGBT-related legislation.

None of the chain's more than 2,200 restaurants are open on that day to allow employees a day of rest.
