Customers threaten to boycott In-N-Out Burger after it donated money to Republicans


After it was learned that In-N-Out Burger donated $25,000 to the California Republican Party, people have begun to threaten a boycott of the popular hamburger chain.

The donation was first spotted by journalist Gabe Schneider, who shared it on Twitter Wednesday afternoon:

As Los Angeles Magazine notes, this is not the first time In-N-Out has donated to the Republican party, as the company donated $30,000 in both 2016 and 2017 for general party expenses.

But, it was news of the $25,000 donation that led to many Twitter users to call to #BoycottInNOut – including California Democratic Party chairman Eric Bauman:

Others also expressed outrage:

In-N-Out Burger has also donated $80,000 in the past two years to to Californians for Jobs and a Strong Economy, which Fortune describes as “a political action committee that supports business-friendly Democratic candidates”.
