UofL president refusing to eat Chick-fil-A

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Chick-fil-A could be on its way out of the student activities center at the University of Louisville.

The fast food chain has come under fire in recent weeks after the company's president spoke out against gay marriage.

Now, top university officials including UofL President James Ramsey are refusing to eat at the restaurant and are reviewing the chain's contract with the university.

The University released a statement that said,"This university has been consistently supportive of our LGBT community, and like them, we find the statement made by Chick-fil-A's president to be offensive and unnecessary." The statement continued, "We will inform you of decisions once we have weighed all of the facts and our potential courses of action."

Chick-fil-A has not commented.
