While I appreciate any pop culture moment that incorporates a reference to "Hold On" by Wilson Phillips — otherwise known as the most inspirational song of all time — I don't know if I'd go boycotting Chik-Fil-A quite yet if you're going on former RuPaul's Drag Race contestant Willam Belli's reasoning for doing the song:
How did that come about?
Well, I wasn’t a big Chick-fil-A fan, I guess, I never really knew about them because I’m from Philly and they don’t have them there. I was eating there with my girlfriends and they were telling me how [they support anti-gay organizations]. I was like, “Oh that sucks about the gay thing.” And then, I got diarrhea from it, so I was like, “F— this, I’m gonna write a song.” The fact that they come after gay people, let me come for you. The worst endorsement for a Christian chicken eatery is three drag queens. So it’s like, “Alright, alright, boo.” In reality, I just wanted to wear a bobbed wig.
