In-N-Out burger chain will probably have the best sales ever after the call for a boycott totally backfired.
The chair of the Democratic Party in California Eric Bauman announced on twitter he’d discovered a donation to the California Republican Party from the burger chain and called for a boycott. What happened next was not what he intended to happen.
Social media went crazy with supporters sharing photos and tweets supporting In-N-Out (see below). The company also released a statement supporting their donation and saying they donate to both parties:
In 2018, In-N-Out Burger has made equal contributions to both Democratic and Republican Political Action Committees in the State of California. For years, In-N-Out Burger has supported lawmakers who, regardless of political affiliation, promote policies that strengthen California and allow us to continue operating with the values of providing strong pay and great benefits for our Associates.
It is actually far more important to In-N-Out and our Foundations to support our communities by contributing millions of dollars to hundreds of organizations in California to prevent child abuse, human trafficking and substance addiction.
We have been fortunate to do business in this great state for almost 70 years. While it is unfortunate that our contributions to support both political parties in California has caused concern with some groups, we believe that bipartisan support is a fair and consistent approach that best serves the interests of our company and all of our Customers.
Arnie Wensinger, Executive Vice President
JAMES WOODS AND OTHERS TWEETED THEIR SUPPORT FOR IN-N-OUT BURGER:
James Woods always knows how to slap back at the liberals with one tweet that resonates. The cry babies on the left discovered that their favorite burger chain gave $25,000 to the California Republican party. They are outraged by this independent political thought in the liberal state of California. You can’t depart from party group-think or else you are destroyed.
The left is out in force right now enraged by burger outlet IN-N-OUT BURGER….The tweets are flooding social media but the one and only James Woods pulls the hysterical liberals back with just one tweet. The Chair of the Democratic Party of California tweeted out calling for a boycott: “Et tu In-N-Out? Tens of Thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party…it’s time to #BoycottInNOut – let Trump and his cronies support these creeps… perhaps animal style…”

If you’re on Twitter, please tweet out to support this huge burger chain. This is ridiculous. They chose to donate to a political party. That’s it!
Twitter photos of customers eating burgers and supporting the company flooded social media:

The California democratic Party might regret their call for a boycott!
