Buffalo Niagara International Airport has scrapped plans to open a Chick-fil-A after a New York state politician accused the fast-food chain of “divisive anti-LBGTQ rhetoric.”

Democratic New York State Assemblyman Sean Ryan complained to the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority that he was “disappointed” in the restaurant choice in a Facebook post last week.

“I don't believe the leadership of the NFTA intends to help spread hate and discrimination, but allowing a corporation like Chick-fil-A to do business at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport will help to fund continued divisive anti-LGBTQ rhetoric,” he wrote.

Ryan lauded the about-face, posting the agency’s statement agreeing with him.

“First and foremost, the NFTA is an organization that prides itself on its strong commitment to diversity and inclusion and stand firmly against any form of discrimination,” the statement said. “We have the utmost respect for Assemblyman Ryan and consider him a great partner and friend to us.”

It’s the second time the franchise has been squeezed out of an airport. Last month, San Antonio, Texas, International Airport also banned Chick-fil-A from opening there, the Washington Times reported.
