The chairman of the California Democratic Party called for a boycott of regional burger chain In-N-Out Thursday after it was reported the company has donated to the Republican Party.

Los Angeles Magazine reported Wednesday that "Your Favorite Burger Chain Just Donated a Bunch of Money to the Republican Party," calling attention to a $25,000 donation the Irvine-based corporation made to the California Republican Party.

"It’s certainly not the first In-N-Out Republican contribution… In 2017 and 2016, the company donated $30,000 per year to the California GOP for general party expenses," the report noted. In-N-Out also donated to a pro-business Super PAC run by a centrist Democrat political operative.

The next day, California Democratic Party chairman Eric Bauman called for a boycott. "Et tu In-N-Out?" he tweeted. "Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party… it’s time to #BoycottInNOut – let Trump and his cronies support these creeps… perhaps animal style!"

In-N-Out Burger is famous for being a local cult-like favorite of Californians and visitors to the Southwest, regularly being voted as either the best or second-best burger chain in the United States. The chain's ownership makes no secret of their Evangelical background, printing Bible verses on wrappers and other products.
