In-N-Out Donated to Republican Campaigns ― Now Some Californians Are Planning to Boycott

In-N-Out is the latest company to get slapped with a political boycott after reports show they donated to California Republicans. 

Reporter, Gabe Schneider, discovered the financial disclosers showing that the popular burger franchise had donated $25,000 to the California Republican Party. 

After the donation surfaced, many were outraged, calling the information “painful.” California Democrat Party Chair, Eric Bauman, even demanded a boycott.

Some conservative took to Twitter to mock the boycott. 

Although many were shocked to find that In-N-Out had donated to Republicans, others were quick to point out that the burger franchise donates to each party, with more money going to Democrats.

A report from Time Magazine found that, in 2014, 52 percent of In-N-Out’s donations went to Democrats and 48 percent went to Republicans. Fortune also noted that $50,000 went to Californians for Jobs and a Strong Economy, a Democrat PAC that supports pro-business candidates. 

Of course, In-N-Out isn’t the first restaurant chain to be targeted for political statements. Boycotts of the Christian company, Chick-fil-A, are as dependable as the company’s friendly service

Boston Beer Company, the makers of beverages like Sam Adams, Angry Orchard ciders, and Twisted Tea ice teas, also faced a boycott for thanking President Donald Trump for the tax cuts. 

Luckily for In-N-Out, many previous outrage protests ended in failure. When Parkland survivor, David Hogg, urged viewers and advertisers to boycott Laura Ingraham on Fox News, her weekly viewership went up.
