 7. Drag Queens Protest Chick-Fil-A For Funding Right-Wing Organizations Via Viral Music Video

What does it take to get noticed these days?  If you ask Willam Belli, Detox, and Vicky Vox, it takes three drag queens and a catchy song slamming Chick-Fil-A for funding right-wing anti-gay organizations.  It is no secret that Chick-Fil-A is a Christian-owned food chain and follow the Christian beliefs very strictly, even to the point of closing their doors on Sunday.
