(Huffington Post) Chipotle has canceled its planned sponsorship of a Utah Boy Scout event over controversy surrounding the Boy Scouts of America’s ban on gay leaders and scouts.
The Tex-Mex fast-food giant was originally slated to provide food coupons for the influential Great Salt Lake Council’s Utah Scout-O-Rama fundraiser in May, reports The Salt Lake Tribune.
As word spread about the Chipotle sponsorship, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) advocates pressed the company on its decision, which seemed to go against its policy of not supporting “organizations that discriminate against a person or a group on the basis of age, political affiliation, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation or religious belief.”
