Chick-fil-A continues to find itself in a PR nightmare.

It all started when Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy admitted to being anti-gay. He later backtracked, but the firestorm of controversy had already begun for the Atlanta-based fast food chain.

The Jim Henson Company, which is best known for creating the Muppets, immediately pulled Jim Henson's Creature Shop toys from Chick-fil-A Kid's Meals.

Only Chick-fil-A claimed - one day after Henson's announcement - that the toys were "voluntarily" pulled because of a "possible safety issue."

Signs posted inside Chick-fil-A stores made the claim. That resulted in hundreds of Facebook posts calling the company out for lying.

"Isn't lying a sin?" read one Facebook post with a picture of the sign attached.

Perhaps the timing was all a coincidence, but now comes "Abby Farle." She joined Facebook on Tuesday night to defend Chick-fil-A on the social network. noted the photo of "Abby" is a stock image used by a "chicken PR flack."

Whether or not Chick-fil-A will fess-up, it seems the chicken chain has played fast and loose with the truth.
