Obama Fried Chicken Protests Planned

Well, you knew somebody was going to take offense at NYC’s Obama Fried Chicken restaurants, right?

Two New York City fried chicken restaurants in predominantly black neighborhoods are under fire for putting President Barack Obama’s name on their signs. City Councilman Charles Barron said Friday that he will organize a demonstration next week outside the Obama Fried Chicken in his Brooklyn district if the sign doesn’t change. Opponents also say they may target Obama Fried Chicken & Pizza in Harlem. Barron said he has been getting calls from outraged residents in his district.

Apparently it is totally legal to use the president’s name in this fashion. Whether it’s appropriate is another question.
