Amy Schumer is one of the left wing celebrities who disappointed millions of Americans by not leaving the country after Trump won, as she had promised to do.
Now she is using her star power to target Wendy’s and the reason is so ridiculous.
Amy Schumer Is Asking Fans To Boycott Wendy’s—And Their Spicy Chicken Nuggets
This weekend, Chance The Rapper accidentally brought back Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Nuggets with a single tweet (and 2 million subsequent likes). Shortly thereafter, Amy Schumer announced the gender of her baby-a boy! who’s finally here!-in a post asking fans to #BoycottWendys: “Instead of spicy nuggets, we want food that is harvested with dignity NOT violence,” she wrote.
Alyssa Milano has since voiced her support of the campaign as well, which dates back to as early as 2005. The issue centers on The Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ Fair Food Program, which describes itself as “a partnership among farmers, farmworkers, and retail food companies that ensures humane wages and working conditions for the workers who pick fruits and vegetables on participating farms.”
In March 2019, the New York Times reported the program currently benefits around 35,000 laborers, most of whom live in Florida. In the last decade, it has helped improve working conditions in the tomato industry, reducing incidences of violence and wage theft.
Wendy’s is said to be the last major fast food company to not join the program; Subway and Burger King joined in 2008, McDonald’s in 2007, and Yum Brands, which owns Taco Bell, KFC, and Pizza Hut, in 2005. Other partners include Whole Foods, Chipotle, Walmart, and Trader Joe’s.
Here’s Schumer’s Instagram post:

Hey! We love @chancetherapper and hate to be the ones to tell him that Wendys is the only fast food chain refusing to protect farmworker women from sexual assault and rape in the fields. This is true. Please read that sentence again. Message for the people in charge: Instead of spicy nuggets, we want food that is harvested with dignity NOT violence. Please join the @fairfoodprogram and #BoycottWendys link in my bio of how you can help. Also we are having a boy. 🥳

Leftists in Hollywood have decided in recent years that being an entertainer isn’t enough.
They all want to be activists as well.
