Aziz Ansari Considers the Chick-fil-A Controversy


Aziz Ansari stopped by Jimmy Kimmel’s show last night and confirmed that he no longer gives his business to his once-beloved Chick-fil-A. But, despite the recent controversy, Ansari’s gay friend still does, and that got Ansari thinking: “That’s such an interesting commentary on America,” Aziz reflected, “that for some gay Americans, it’s harder to find a delicious chicken sandwich than it is to find equality.” The root of the whole controversy: The chain’s sandwiches are just so good, there are no other options for people who don’t agree with its politics. Says Ansari, “No one would be talking about this if it was Long John Silver’s.” Watch the clip, straight ahead.
