MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — Burger King has taken a shot at Chick-Fil-A during Pride month and will donate money from its new chicken sandwich to the Human Rights Campaign, the world’s largest LGBTQ civil rights organization.

On Thursday, the company tweeted that 40 cents from every “Ch’King” sandwich sold in the month of June will be donated to the Human Rights Campaign. The company will donate up to $250,000.

Burger King also took a dig at Chick-Fil-A by saying money will be donated, “even on Sundays” — a day Chick-Fil-A is closed.

Chick-Fil-A has come under fire in the past for donating money to anti-LGBTQ organizations. In 2019, the restaurant chain said it would no longer donate to those organizations.
