The words "Tastes Like Hate" were painted on a Torrance Chick-fil-A in the same design as one of the chain's ad campaigns.
A Torrance Chick-fil-A has been vandalized with spray paint on an outside wall reading "Tastes Like Hate," KFI reports. It was done in a design similar to a Chick-fil-A ad campaign, complete with a drawing of a cow with a paintbrush.
This follows the fast food restaurant being embroiled in controversy over its opposition to gay marriage.
Torrance was one of the locations where supporters of Chick-fil-A's stance on gay marriage came out to show their support, the Daily Breeze reports.
This happens just ahead of a "kiss-in" at by gay rights activists and other gay marriage supporters at Chick-fil-A restaurants to protest the chain's politics.
On Wednesday, hundreds of thousands of customers showed their support for the restaurant during an "Appreciation Day." Chick-fil-A says it set a one-day sales record on Wednesday.
The flap began last month when Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told a religious publication that the company backed "the biblical definition of a family."
