A gay Los Angeles artist who’s admitted to vandalizing a local Chick-fil-A eatery is being investigated by the police.
Artist Manny Castro was so perturbed by CEO Dan Cathy’s comment about gay marriage, he decided to take matters into his own hands. Castro Thursday scrawled the words “Tastes Like Hate” in huge lettering on the side of the Torrance restaurant.
To his credit, the artist came forward to identify himself as the unknown vandal, but he should at least be forced to pay restitution for the cleanup. Why should the owner foot the bill?
This week’s Chick-fil-A hoopla has shown how immature Americans have become. People on both sides of the gay marriage issue completely overreacted to Cathy’s remarks.
While Cathy is the CEO of a company, he is not a senator or a governor, and has no political power. If you don’t like his opinions, simply don’t patronize his restaurants.
But, it’s pretty disgraceful to punish the local Chick-fil-A owners, and their hourly wage employees, for the actions of the CEO. They are just trying to earn a living. Castro accomplished nothing by vandalizing the local Torrance franchise.
