- In-N-Out Burger donated $25,000 to California's GOP on Monday in public filing
- The donation sparked anger and a boycott among restaurant fans
- Donation filed in Irvine, a Republican California city, ahead of midterm elections
- The burger chain also donated to California's Republican party in 2016 and 2017
California's favorite burger joint has come under fire after the restaurant donated $25,000 to the California Republican Party.
The donation was filed on Monday according to the California Secretary of State's website, and has spurred turmoil among the restaurant's fans.
The contribution was made ahead of midterm elections in Irvine, California, which is a part of Orange County - a Republican stronghold in the west coast.
The news broke on Twitter with a post saying: 'In-N-Out added a new item to their secret menu' with a picture of the filing.
Now Twitter users are calling for a boycott of the popular fast-food chain, many refusing to support In-N-Out if they sponsor the GOP and the Trump administration as the state rolls towards midterm elections.
However, this isn't the first time the burger joint has supported the Republican party.
In 2017 and 2016, In-N-Out gave $30,000 per year to the California GOP for general expenses, according to Los Angeles Magazine.
'This information will be painful to many of you, and you may act on it, or not, as your conscience demands,' one user wrote.
'I guess I won’t be having any more #InNOut Burgers,' another user wrote.
'Et tu In-N-Out? 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!' Eric Bauman, Chair of the California Democratic Party tweeted.
'In N Out donated $25k to the Republican party, aka no more Animal Style Double Doubles for me,' another fan echoed.
'Phooey! I've enjoyed the convenience of the drive-thru 3 miles from my house, but no way do they get my money now. #BoycottInNOut,' one Twitter fan wrote.
'@innoutburger looks like my family and I will be boycotting your restaurants from now on. You donate to the @GOP, that means you stand with Trump and all his bigotry. #ShameOnYou! #BoycottInNOut' one protester warned.
'Yo, In N Out could give the California GOP $30 MILLION in contributions and I'll still keep eating there. Republicans will never take back the state, no matter how many Double Doubles they sell,' another Twitter user echoed.
