The California Democratic Party chair called Thursday for a boycott of burger chain In-N-Out because of a $25,000 donation that In-N-Out gave to the California Republican Party on Tuesday.

“Et tu In-N-Out?” state party Chair Eric Bauman wrote on Twitter Thursday. “Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party… it’s time to  – let Trump and his cronies support these creeps… perhaps animal style!”

The California-based chain now faces a host of customers tweeting with the hashtag #BoycottInNOut after a public filing detailing the donation was posted on Twitter by freelance journalist Gabe Schneider Wednesday.

In-N-Out donated a total of $60,000 to the California Republican Party in 2016 and 2017 for “general party expenses,” according to Los Angeles Magazine. But the corporation also donated $50,000 in 2018 to Californians for Jobs and a Strong Economy, a “political action committee that supports business-friendly Democratic candidates,” according to Forbes.

In-N-Out’s current President Lynsi Snyder is open about her Christian faith. Fast food chain Chick-fil-A has also faced backlash because of its chief executives’ beliefs.

Many fans of the family-owned company love In-N-Out’s special “animal style” burger slathered with extras like thousand island dressing. In-N-Out restaurants can be found in Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, Texas, Utah and California, according to Forbes.
