In-N-Out Responds After Protesters Threaten to Boycott Over GOP Donation

August 31, 2018Aug 31, 2018

In-N-Out is one of the most iconic places to eat in the entire United States. Their delicious burgers have helped them turn their ordinary customers into burger fanatics.

While most of the posts on social media discuss how great the burgers are, things have just taken a sad turn. It was recently revealed that In-N-Out donated $25,000 to the California Republican Party.

Many customers were extremely upset due to differing political views. Some took to social media to try and push a boycott of the burger giant.

Now, In-N-Out has responded to the news.

“In 2018, In-N-Out Burger has made equal contributions to both Democratic and Republican Political Action Committees in the State of California,” In-N-Out Burger executive vice president Arnie Wensinger wrote on Thursday as he began his defense of a company that supports lawmakers not based on party affiliation but rather the promotion of “policies that strengthen California” and help the company provide “strong pay and great benefits” for its employees.

"It is actually far more important to In-N-Out and our Foundations to support our communities by contributing millions of dollars to hundreds of organizations in California to prevent child abuse, human trafficking, and substance addiction. We have been fortunate to do business in this great state for almost 70 years. While it is unfortunate that our contributions to support both political parties in California has caused concern with some groups, we believe that bipartisan support is a fair and consistent approach that best serves the interests of our company and all of our Customers," he concluded.
