Political donation prompts call for In-N-Out boycott

In-N-Out reportedly donated $25,000 to the California Republican Party earlier this week, and the revelation has caused many who identify as Democrats - or just not Republican - to demand a boycott of the chain, according to FOX News.

Mr. Bauman's reaction came shortly after writer Gabe Schneider of Rewire News shared records of In-N-Out Burger's $25,000 to the California Republican Party.

Soon after, the hashtag #BoycottInNOut began trending on Twitter with the same fire and fury as seen during the Chick-fil-A controversy when CEO Dan Cathy revealed his support for traditional marriage.

During lunchtime on Thursday, the In-N-Out Burger in Daly City was busy with a line of cars waiting to get their double doubles. In 2017 and 2016, the company donated $30,000 per year to the California GOP for general party expenses. And don't you dare give money to the other side or we will punish you and take to social media like Eric Bauman did today. "There's no reason to boycott them, I don't think", said In-N-Out customer John Chadwick. "Maybe if Antifa comes out here, but I doubt that".

In-N-Out Burger is famous for being a local cult-like favorite of Californians and visitors to the Southwest, regularly being voted as either the best or second-best burger chain in the United States.

In-N-Out's reputation for fantastic burgers is bolstered by its policy of paying more than minimum wage and offering competitive benefits for fast food workers.

"Even though I'm more of a liberal than a Republican".

Others said they had every intention of continuing to go to the restaurant.
