Democrats want people to boycott California burger-chain InNOut after it was found that the restaurant donates thousands to Republicans.
A journalist named Gabe Schneider revealed on Twitter that the Irvine-based company gave $25,000 to the California Republican Party this week, according to a state filing. The restaurant also donated $30,000 to Republicans in 2016 and 2017.
Following the news, California Democratic Party Chairman Eric Bauman responded in a tweet saying, “In-N-Out? Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party. It’s time to BoycottInNOut – let Trump and his cronies support these creeps… perhaps animal style!”
But, In-N-Out gives to various groups, as the company has donated tens of thousands of dollars to “Californians for Jobs and a Strong Economy,” a political action committee that aims to elect moderate Democrats. Nevertheless, some are saying they will no longer be giving their money to the popular chain.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“No more Double-Doubles for me,” said SpinDr. “From now on, only Shake Shack,” said one Twitter user. Another wrote, “In the age of [#DonaldTrump], we need joy in our lives. Sometimes, that joy comes in red/white wrapper and a toasted bun.”
