I sent a note to Zaxby’s this afternoon because I cannot give them money as long as they are running the Duck Dynasty ad campaign.
A representative from Zaxby’s just called me and asked me (and I am not making this up), “What is up with this?”
As much as I did not want to repeat the vile things Phil Robertson said at a prayer breakfast, I read them to the woman on the phone.
Then I sat there and waited.
She exhaled (like in the book, I guess) and said, “well, that’s disgusting.”
I agreed that it was and said “I cannot give my money to a company that supports hate speech, and that’s not even all of it.”
I asked that the campaign be shut down immediately and that all remaining merchandise be destroyed.
I also made it a point to tell her that I patronize a particular Zaxby’s and that I love them: they are efficient and friendly and it’s always beautifully clean in there.
I am now going to make it my mission to pester them until whoever is in charge acts. I have already sent them an email, spoken with them on the phone, and reached out to them via Facebook. I will be tweeting and encouraging others to do so.
