When Black Lives Matters stood outside a Chick-Fil-A restaurant recently protesting the company's support of Blue Lives Matter, the Tennessee location decided to follow an old adage: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
According to WJHL 11, around 100 protesters stood outside the eatery in Johnson City on Saturday.
Protest organizer Whitney Prater explained, “We want to raise awareness, especially with the Blue Lives Matter campaign, which was a way to silence the Black Lives Matter movement. That is one of the reasons that we chose to have it at Chick-Fil-A. We are not targeting that Chick-Fil-A specifically. The national Chick-Fil-A started that campaign.”
How did the staff of Chick-Fil-A respond to the outpouring of anger surrounding their building? They walked outside and handed out free lemonade.
Johnson City Vice Mayor David Tomita photographed the kind act and posted it on his Facebook page with the description, "What do you do when they're protesting in front of your business? You serve them lemonade of course! You're a class act Darrell Fowler! That's how we roll here in #JohnsonCityTN."
