Leave Martin Austermuhle Alone!

Some not so useful idiots have taken to the interwebs to lambast DCist’s Editor-in-Chief because he tweeted and blogged about a news story that was of interest to, I don’t know, people who live and work in the greater metropolitan Washington, DC area.

On Monday, Martin Austermuhle sent out a tweet alerting chicken lovers to “rejoice” in news that a Chick-Fil-A food truck would be coming to DC on April 9th.

It wasn’t long before the snarkfest began.  People started responding as if Martin had personally attacked them, going as far as openly inquiring “Is Martin Austermuhle an anti-gay bigot?”  Queerty gets into the mix by extolling, “He should have known better.

To be sure, yes, Chick-Fil-A contributes to organizations that are anti-gay.  And yes, people have a right to boycott an establishment for what ever the reason they choose.  This is a free society.

But Martin Austermuhle is a good blogger, a good journalist, and a good guy.  I don’t know him personally, but I would call him a Twitter-friend.  And I’m standing up for my friend, Twitter or otherwise.  Leave Martin Austermuhle alone!
