Petitioning PR Hdq. Office Yun Brand Restaurants and 4 others



Yum Brands Restaurants is the LARGEST RESTAURANT CORP in the WORLD. Taco Bell is one of their brands. Jason Ray smith worked for Taco Bell, Stockwell Rd. Bossier City, Louisiana. He was threatened, harassed, & bullied by a fellow employee in front of Mgt. He was told he needed to be taken out to the corn field and have the gay beaten out of him. When he reported it; he was harassed and intimidated by Taco Bell Mgt, District Manager at that. Connecting Rainbows called for a World Wide Boycott of Yum Brand Restaurants. They responded & fired Jason Ray Smith and told him he had to take down his Facebook and Connecting Rainbows pages before he could return to work. Lambda Legal is investigating the incident, but our efforts augment their investigation. We are asking that Yum Brand Restaurants apologize to Jason and the LGBT community and all of them stop discriminating against LGBT employees & provide diversity training on sexual orientation and gender identity for all Yum Brand Restaurant employess WORLD WIDE. That's what this petition is for. Connecting Rainbows Across America has called a WORLD WIDE BOYCOTT of all YUM BRAND RESTAURANTS: Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, A&W and others.
