RANT: The Muppets sever ties with Chick-fil-a after the company's CEO said he was against same-sex marriage. Do the political beliefs of a CEO affect what you may buy from a company? Or are you just looking for the best product at a price you're willing to pay?
From The Jim Henson Company: The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors. Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD. (http://www.glaad.org/)
