If you want a chicken sandwich on a Sunday, Burger King has you covered - especially during Pride Month.

The burger chain tweeted that it will donate part of its profits for every chicken sandwich sold, up to $250,000, to the Human Rights Campaign.

The tweets appear to cast shade in the direction of another chain, which has been in the news lately for it's CEO's donations to anti-gay organizations. That chain isn't open on Sundays, and sells only chicken.

Here are the tweets:

According to its website, the Human Rights Campaign "envisions a world where every member of the LGBTQ family has the freedom to live their truth without fear, and with equality under the law. We empower our 3 million members and supporters to mobilize against attacks on the most marginalized people in our community."
