While one group of students at West Linn High School in Oregon walked out of class to protest the presence of Chick-Fil-A food carts at their school’s football games, another group walked out waving bags of the chicken franchise’s offerings and sporting MAGA (“Make America Great Again”) hats.

The dueling walkouts took place on Friday, local station KATU reports:

“The (school’s) Gay-Straight Alliance is upset that a Chick-Fil-A food cart is allowed at high school football games. They say Chick-Fil-A supports anti-LGBTQ+ organizations.

“Another group of students walked out of school Friday and were wearing "Make America Great Again" hats. They were waving Chick-Fil-A bags around and were mocking the group that had walked out to support LGBTQ+ students.”

West Linn school officials say the Chick-Fil-A food truck, which is just one of many chosen by the booster club, will continue to serve students for the remainder of the season - after which the school will create a policy to address the LGBTQ activist students’ concerns.

However, KATU reported Saturday that the Chick-Fil-A food truck was absent from Friday night's football game.
