High school students in Oregon staged a walk-out at a football game last week in order to protest their school serving Chick-fil-A at campus sports events. The students claimed that Chick-fil-A contributes to an unsafe environment for LGBT students at the school.

The protest, which took place at West Linn High School in West Linn, Oregon, was over the school’s use of a Chick-fil-A food truck at home games. Another group of students reportedly held a protest in support of the popular fast-food restaurant.

A school spokesman indicated that the school might be considering dumping Chick-fil-A, with one local media outlet reporting that “the district was examining the process that is used to select vendors.”
