Rapper Kanye West has been criticized for his new song praising the infamously anti-LGBTQ fast food chain Chick-fil-A, reported the New York Daily News.
The song, called “Closed on Sundays,” is set to be released in West’s upcoming gospel albumJesus is King: A Kanye West Experience. The lyrics, which were posted online after West promoted the album at a listening party, references Chick-fil-A.
The chorus of the song:
“Closed on Sunday, you my Chick-Fil-A
Closed on Sunday, you my Chick-Fil-A
Hold the selfies, put the ’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…
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”
“Kanye’s lyrics here are an anti-LGBTQ stance with strategic timing,” White said in a statement. “We’re clear on where Chick-fil-A stands and where they put their money when it comes to the human and civil rights of LGBTQ folks. We’re clear that the Trump administration is currently targeting LGBTQ folks.”
