Confirmed by the manager of the Wendy’s location on Merrimon: This message was displayed last night, but taken down this morning. Another photo is here.
The sign appears slightly different in the two images, but the manager of the Merrimon location confirmed the sign was up on Tuesday, and a local witness confirms the sign was still up this morning at 8 a.m..
According to WLOS, today is Chick-fil-A’s annual Customer Appreciation Day.
Supporters of the company are planning on heading out in droves to support the company that’s been highly criticized after an executive’s comments about gay marriage.
Opponents are planning on protesting today’s appreciation day, along with staging a “Kiss Mor Chiks” protest on Friday – when they are encouraging people of the same sex to show up at Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country & kiss each other.
Local gay rights group Just Us for All plans a sit-in today at noon at the Chick-fil-A on Tunnel Road. Details of the protest are here.
Update 12:12 p.m. : Looks like the image above is of the Wendy’s in Boone, N.C. but the message did appear on the sign in Asheville, and at other Wendy’s franchises.
