Burger King is throwing down the fast-food gauntlet and declaring all-out war against Chick-fil-A with a brilliant strategy to troll its fast-food rival and raise money for LGBTQ equality in the process.

As reported by CNN, BK tweeted last week that it would donate 40 cents to the Human Rights Campaign for every one of its Ch'King sandwich sold during Pride Month. The move is a not-so-subtle dig at the notoriously anti-LGBTQ behavior of Chick-fil-A and further encourages consumers to be cautious about where they spend their money.


In 2012, Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy made it known that the company supports the "biblical definition of the family unit." The company has tried to distance itself from anti-LGBTQ organizations in the past by changing its charitable contributions, only to fall right back into donating to anti-LGBTQ causes this year.

"The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest LGBTQ civil rights organization," reports CNN. "Burger King added it will make those donations 'even on Sunday,' tweeting the eyes emoji. Chick-fil-A, because of its devout Christian ownership, closes its restaurants on Sundays."

We will take 10 Ch'Kings!
