    Regardless, currently it is ...

    $489,324 of $200k
    Raised by 16,513 people in 1 day

    and increasing by the second.
    No they actually wouldn't. The business could have seen an opportunity to do something bold for their business in seeing the reporter. With the recent trend we have seen with people making donations to people they see as victims, of either side, they could have figured on it getting them donations in some way, just nor necessarily knowing exactly how. Maybe they did think it would initially be like a CFA thing, or like the bakers or other businesses like them. Then they saw the opportunity expand with the Yelp! thing and other social media outrage. A couple of angry, irrational (empty) threats lister and they have a full blown sympathy grabbing, money making opportunity. Heck, they could have simply made the comment innocently figuring such a thing wasn't likely to happen to them anyway, and then saw the opportunity for profitable sympathy after the reaction.

    This is you ignoring the sequence of events.
    They had nothing to do with the reporter.

    I didn't say they did. They could have seen an opportunity to help themselves financially when the reporter came looking for comments. This sort of thing doesn't take planning, just opportunity.

    To me this thread should have 200 pages as well. Shoots the gay narrative in the throat Just like Chic Fil A... You watch what happens in the coming month to corps like Apple, who scream discrimination about Indiana, but have absolutely no problem setting up shop in China, and the CEO is a raving gay to boot.. LOL You can't write hypocrisy better than that. Not to mention Wal Mart and every other do gooder.. They're so phony it makes your stomach curdle.
