Kanye West Praises Anti-LGBTQ Restaurant Chain Chick-fil-A In New Leaked Song
Kanye’s new track “Closed on Sunday” praises Chick-fil-A for being closed on Sundays…
Kanye West has been promoting the release of his upcoming gospel-influenced album Jesus Is King, by hosting exclusive listening parties across the US. Among the songs West has been previewing is “Closed on Sunday,” which heavily references anti-LGBTQ restaurant chain Chick-fil-A and urges people to reject popular culture in favour of religion.
West sings on the track:
“Closed on Sunday, you my Chick-fil-A. Closed on Sunday, you my Chick-fil-A. Hold the selfies, put the [Insta]’Gram away. Get your family, y’all hold hands and pray. When you got daughters, always keep ’em safe. Watch out for vipers, don’t let them indoctrinate. Closed on Sunday, you my Chick-fil-A. This ain’t game day, get your house in shape. Train your sons, raise them in the faith. To temptations, make sure they’re wide awake. Follow Jesus, listen and obey. No more livin’ for the culture, we nobody’s slave.”
The non-stop references to Chick-fil-A throughout “Closed on Sunday” have the LGBTQ community (once again) questioning the artist and why he is supporting a company that has donated more than $1.8 million to anti-LGBTQ groups in recent years.
“Closing our business on Sunday, the Lord’s Day, is our way of honoring God and showing our loyalty to Him,” Chick-fil-A’s founder, Truett Cathy, wrote in his 2002 book Eat Mor Chikin: Inspire More People. The anti-LGBTQ restaurant has not made a comment about being mentioned in the song.
It’s not exactly clear when West’s album will drop… it was originally expected to drop on September 29, but was not released. A film of the same name has a release date of October 25. Needless to say… if “Closed on Sunday” remains included it won’t be on our must-buy list.
