Antoine Dodson has rejected calls by gay activists and allies to dump Chick-Fil-A over its anti-gay views and support of groups opposed to gay marriage.

Dodson, the oldest of six children, became a YouTube celebrity in 2010 when an interview he gave to a local television station on an attempted rape of his sister, Kelly Dodson, was “songified” by The Gregory Brothers. Sales from the single Bed Intruder on iTunes reportedly earned Dodson enough money to move his family out of public housing in Huntsville, Alabama.

“Just let me tell you this: I have uncles and aunties as well that does not approve of gay marriages and stuff like that, but they respect me,” said Dodson, who is openly gay, in a 90-second video posted on YouTube. “I don't care about one person's opinion and that's the way they feel, and that's fine.”

“Chick-Fil-A makes good meals. … So no one is gonna stop me from eating there. … People say a lot of crazy things.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Dodson responded to criticism to his first video in a second video.

“The people at the restaurants are sweet, and they greet me kindly. And the fries may not always be hot, but they're good. If we stop coming, those hardworking people in that building no longer have jobs.”

“So I'm not really supporting the head man in charge. I'm supporting those hard workers in the kitchen,” he added.
