A day after admitting that its sponsorship of the Utah Scout-A-Rama violated its corporate non-discrimination policies, Chipotle told ThinkProgress Tuesday that it has cancelled its support.
In an email, company spokesman Chris Arnold wrote:
By way of follow up, we have terminated our sponsorship of this event.
As I mentioned yesterday, community support decisions like this are
made in a decentralized way and this one was inconsistent with our own
policy. We believed that terminating the sponsorship and
remaining consistent with our policy was the right thing to do, and we
have reinforced our policy with the team that makes these decisions to
try to prevent similar issues in the future.
