Passengers traveling through San Antonio international airport will be out of luck if they're craving Chick-Fil-A's crispy chicken or waffle fries.

That's because the San Antonio city council has voted to ban the chicken-centric chain from opening up shop in the air hub due to the company's alleged "legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior."

The vote comes a day after the progressive news site "think progress" published tax documents revealing Chick-Fil-A foundation gave over $1.8 million in charitable donations to some organizations that have come under fire for anti-LGBTQ policies.

The news marks the second time in recent months that Chick-Fil-A has been banned from launching a new location in a commercial hotspot due to the company's supposed LGBTQ stance.

Last November, Rider University made headlines for turning down a student body survey that voted to bring Chick-Fil-A to campus as a new fast-food option, citing concerns over the company's attitudes toward the LGBTQ community.
