Excerpt:
"aco Bell is the latest company to embrace woke activism by rolling out "Taco Bell Drag Brunch" at select Taco Bell Cantinas across the US.

"Each show will be hosted by the fabulous drag performer and taco extraordinaire, Kay Sedia, and feature performances from local queens and kings that will transform any morning from Mild to Fire!" according to a recent press release from the largest fast-food Tex-Mex restaurant chain.

"As a brand that brings people together, the Taco Bell Drag Brunch experience is rooted in celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community and creating safe and welcoming spaces for all," the press release continued. "

===============================

I won't be going to any Taco Bell, but I never have.

    I think its stupid for these companies to try to appear woke just to get the approval of the left. Maybe they will get more customers, who knows.

    Personally I could care less who their customers are. I go to taco bell occasionally and it has always seemed that no matter who you were, you got the same tacos and treatment. In fact taco bell was the chain that handled the pandemic BEST in terms of service. They appear to be fixing a non existent problem.

      My speculation...
      Someone at the home office has firmly placed a woke thumb on the decision scale and using a
      deliberately left-biased poll of potential customers has made a decision that will reduce the
      number of conscious conservatives to zero.
      In a high inflation market, the customer base will already be reduced, and this action will
      result in half of the (greasy spoon) TacoHells to close in the next few years.

        I call it "toxic hell". Its cheaper than most of the fast food places and does have some unique items. Food is better at del taco actually, service is terrible at cafe rio and burger king, and food is unremarkable at mac donalds.

          Is there something about Objectivism which has so many dwelling on the beliefs of others rather than whether the product provided is good or and not that the person mirrors ones own beliefs?
          I would have had to commit suicide seventy years ago because Ihardly agree with anyone. One need not control the market, just get government out of it and deal with whether you want the product and forget about the self or lack of self of the producer.

            Objectivism in ALL things. One can make the argument that supporting this kind of nonsense is bad for society as a whole. And as long as we dwell in “society” we suffer the consequences of things that are bad for it. It was Galt’s objection to what he believed was bad for society that caused him to form a different society. In fact he began to actively pursue the destruction of the old society. You can be Objective and still have “moral” (not in the religious sense) opinions. And act on them. Otherwise Galt would have just been a Stoic. And done nothing but put up with it. Or, just suicide himself.
            Transgenderism could be a denial of reality itself. Which would put it in direct opposition to objectivism.
            Boycotting Taco Bell is just a micro example of attempting to take down a society that you disagree with. Like Galt did.

    Bell be goin' to hell.
    Three weeks ago me dino pulled up to the Taco Bell intercom.
    Intercom lady~~oh, excuse me, that's a birthing person now~~told me I would have to come inside.
    One word popped out of my mouth and that word was "Meh." Me dino did not go inside. Why? To say "meh" to a birthing person is not to comply.
    Me dino is of the people who say, "Meh."
    Three days ago me dino awaited my order by the drive-by window at Captain D. Across the street was Taco Bell and three weeks later NO ONE STILL COULD NOT make an order at the outside intercom.
    When me dino got home the Captain D fish tasted peculiar and I dumped it.
    Meh! To eat Captain D is to eat fish that tastes like pee.
    Meh! Wonder if Captain D wears the Yoke Of Woke also. Meh! Meh! Meh! Patooie!

    yeah, unfortunately Taco Bell lost me when I went low-carb... LOL Every year or two, I would let myself have a beef burrito...

    But they are officially off-limits until further notice.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Never did like taco bell. I would rather go to a legit Mexican restaurant owned and operated by the same. Not so much a fast food fan anymore.

    Such a shame that so many people are too egocentric to realize when they are being pandered to for profit. Especially the people who are against profit to begin with.

    I don't care if they celebrate LGBTXYZ, or that any of the acronyms exist. Just don't force me to do anything with it.

    Taco Bell food sucks. I'm not sure if I have eaten at one more than twice. That is why I won't go again.

          For us it was the incredibly cheap, and large proportion of the bean and cheese burritos - with no red sauce. Now they are more expensive (relative and raw numbers-wise) and smaller.

          Back then, when you'd order w/"no red" you could actually taste the roasted-ness of the beans. Now, what little beans you get don't have that nice flavor to them. And they've doubled in price while being 1/4 or less of the size. A bygone era.

            My best friend in the 90's was a great chef (Culinary Institute grad being paid very low wages) and he ate at Taco Bell frequently because it was the best economy fast food at the time.

    Actually I USED to like TB but got turned off when I saw someone sweep the floor and immediately begin food prep without hand washing. It has been a couple of years since I have been there. However there is no reason to expect corporate common sense either.

      The owner of the franchise would not tolerate this. They would welcome this observation so they can speak with the manager on duty and the shift employees. The franchisee is the one with big money in the game. They need to know if someone is damaging their reputation.

    No more Toco Bell for me. Being honest I don't think I've been to one in over 45 years. But it' got me to thinking, I just got a hunger for a Big Mac an Fries.

    There is a Gulcher who has a weakness for Taco Bell. You wouldn’t be surprised that this would be no problemo to the guy I am referring to.

      I eat Mexican food every chance I get. It's a great anti-inflammatory and relieves pain! The Marguerita I order with it helps. We have at least 7 Mexican food restaurants in our little town. I couldn't get through Christmas without my tamales! I go straight to the Barrio to buy them!

        I also love Mexican food . Taco Bell is the last place I would order Mexican food. When they first opened up it was a decient product , not anymore. IMO it is like much of the fast food industry. Inferior product at a high price , but you do get it Quickly.

    First, what does drag have to do with a Mexican restaurant? I know of some who like to go in drag, but none are Mexican. One is a white history teacher, another is our top military advisor, one used to reside in the WH. Seems Starbucks or some dance club would be more like it. Strange!

    Taco Bell used to be a good value for lunch once a week. I could eat well on a couple of burritos or chalupas for $6. Then the scamdemic hit, and their service in the drive-thru has gotten slow, their menu has changed to smaller items that are more expensive, and some items that are on the menu are often unavailable. I can't get a meal there for less than $10 after a 15 minute wait. I quit them and go to local Mexican restaurants that have better food for less.

    They've lost their minds if they think people want to eat while a drag queen cavorts in front of them. They're alienating 97% of their paying customers to please 3% woke people who probably don't go to Taco Bell anyway.

    Taco Smell -- Run for the Bathroom.

    If I remember correctly, there was a court case a few years back where TB got sued for not having enough meat in their 'meat' to legally call it meat.
    I think they settled out of court, of course without disclosing the results. I won't be back.

    I gave up Taco Bell years ago, but I would stop in just to support and celebrate LGTQ+ rights, if I were riding by an event.

    I really belong at a Freedom Inc Madison fund raiser for "the olds", not at Taco Bell.
