Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) threw his support behind Chick-fil-A this week after reports emerged that some students at the University of Notre Dame voiced opposition to the school considering making the chain a part of its on-campus dining.
Students wrote a letter to the school’s student-run newspaper published earlier this month, titled “Keep Chick-fil-A away,” that pushed back against the idea of the chain being offered on campus, citing “serious ethical concerns.”
The fast-food chain has come under fire in recent years for donations made by its charitable foundation to anti-LGBT groups.
The students wrote that they believe “a variety of other restaurants would better fit Notre Dame’s mission and our student body’s needs,” while also calling for “student and faculty leaders to stop catering Chick-fil-A at campus events.”
