MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — Burger King has taken a shot at Chick-fil-A and announced will donate money from its new chicken sandwich to the Human Rights Campaign, the world’s largest LGBTQ civil rights organization.

The company tweeted that 40 cents from every “Ch’King” sandwich sold in June, which is Pride Month, will be donated to the Human Rights Campaign. The company will donate up to $250,000.

Burger King also took a dig at Chick-Fil-A by saying money will be donated, “even on Sundays” — a day Chick-fil-A is closed.

Chick-fil-A has come under fire in the past for donating money to anti-LGBTQ organizations. The restaurant chain said in 2019 it would no longer donate to those organizations.
