We kid, but The Office funny man is serious about boycotting Chick-fil-A for being anti-gay.
“Chick-fil-A doesn’t like gay people?” Helmstweeted earlier today. “So lame. Hate to think what they do to the gay chickens! Lost a loyal fan.”
Helms’ outrage stems from comments that the company’s chief operating officer Dan Cathy recently made to the Baptist Pressabout not supporting same-sex marriage.
“Guilty as charged,” Cathy said when asked about the company’s support of what the Press describes as “the traditional family.”
“We are very much supportive of the family—the biblical definition of the family unit,” Cathy explained. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”

Ed Helms is getting ready to continue a Griswold family vacation tradition as the actor is in negotiations to star in New Line’s “Vacation.”
Helms would play Rusty Griswold, the son of Clark Griswold played by Chevy Chase in the “National Lampoon’s Vacation” franchise.
Helms was rumored to be involved in the project earlier in the year, but New Line was still closing in on a director before offers were made to thesps.
“Horrible Bosses” scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are directing from a script they penned.
The new version of the vacation adventures of the quirky dad and his family will follow Rusty, who now has his own family misadventures on the road.
David Dobkin will produce through his David Dobkin Productions banner.
If Helms’ deal closes, production would aim for a spring start after Helms finishes production on “The Hangover 3″ and his stint on “The Office.” In that time, New Line will aim to cut the script down a little in order to bring in to the budget they like.
Harold Ramis directed the 1983 original that was a big hit for Warners. Two more installments followed, “European Vacation” and “Christmas Vacation,” the highest grossing of the series, bringing in more than $70 million on a budget of about $25 million. Warner tried to rejuvenate the series with “Vegas Vacation” in 1997, but that pic underperformed compared to previous installments.
The CAA and Principato-Young repped Helms is also set to film a small role for “We’re the Millers” and “They Came Together.”
