Chick-fil-A Protesters Hijack Zamboni … At Pro Hockey Game
Call this the Trojan Horse On Ice … a bunch of protesters snuck “Chick-fil-A Is Anti-Gay” signs onto the fast food restaurant’s Zamboni at a pro hockey game Saturday — and the video is hilarious!!!
It all went down at this weekend’s Cincinnati Cyclones game … where fans usually pay a small fee to ride in the Zamboni during intermission with fun signs.
The problem for the Cyclones? They say fans concealed anti-Chick-fil-A messages inside of “Happy Birthday” signs … and then broke out the protesting ones once they were on the ice.

The clip is pretty funny … the Zamboni is decked out in Chick-fil-A swag and the cow mascot is obliviously waving to the crowd — all while the anti-fast food signs are on full display!!!
Of course, the Cyclones were pretty pissed over the incident … they booted the protesters from the game and apologized afterward.
“During the first intermission a group of protesters riding the Chick-fil-A Fan Zam displayed unacceptable messaging that was hidden inside of a birthday sign,” the team said in a statement.
“The Cincinnati Cyclones & U.S. Bank Arena do not condone this type of behavior or the messaging expressed.”
The team added, “These actions do not align with the family-friendly atmosphere that we aim to provide. Chick-fil-A has been a wonderful partner and we are thankful for their on-going support.”
As for the game, seems the drama affected the players on the ice … the Cyclones lost to the Kalamazoo Wings, 2-0.
