Berenstain Bears enter the cave of Chick-fil-A controversy8/13/2012
Just when you thought the Chick-fil-A controversy was dying down, the Berenstain Bears have jumped into the fray. Publishers of the popular children's literary series are facing pressure to pull out of a marketing partnership with the chicken chain to take a stand against homophobia. Chick-fil-A plans to distribute "The Berenstain Bears" books as part of an upcoming kid's-meal promotion, but gay-rights advocates say the restaurant's president is exhibiting "exactly the kind of social intolerance that Papa, Mama, Brother, Sister and Honey Bear educate young readers to avoid." Critics want the bear clan to go the way of the Muppets and get the pluck out of the deal. [Source]
