In a series of tweets Monday, Sen. Marco Rubio stood up for Chick-fil-A after the CEO of Twitter was made to apologize for patronizing the fast food chain during gay Pride Month.

The Florida Republican questioned the prudence of boycotting a company for holding a mainstream Christian view on marriage.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey apologized Saturday after gay-rights activists and journalists shamed him for posting a receipt showing that he had eaten on Chick-fil-A.


Former CNN journalist Soledad O’Brien questioned whether Mr. Dorsey was sending the right message by eating at the Christian-owned restaurant during the month of June.


Mr. Dorsey apologized in a tweet to Ms. O’Brien, saying he had forgotten about Chick-fil-A’s stance on marriage.
