This morning, however, Ms. Quinn’s office sent out a press release announcing a petition calling on the president of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, to apologize for his “repugnant and un-American” comments and discriminatory views.

But what’s more, Ms. Quinn is requesting the removal of the one Chick-fil-A restaurant in all of New York City.

“I urge you to sever your relationship with the Chick‐fil‐A establishment that exists on your campus,” she wrote in a letter to the president of New York University. “This establishment should be replaced with an establishment where the ownership does not denigrate a portion of our population.”
