A TV moment is raising a political firestorm.
CNN said in a statement, "The music selection was a poor choice and was not intended to be linked to any news story. We regret any perception that they were planned together."
The CNN story was about a photo Palin tweeted of herself and husband Todd at a Chick-fil-A restaurant outside Houston, Texas, along with the message, "Stopped by Chick-fil-A in the Woodlands to support a great business."
Earlier, Palin had appeared at a rally near the restaurant and said, "We drove by a Chick-fil-A. We don't have that in Alaska. Love me some Chick-fil-A."
CNN's apology to Sarah Palin is the latest twist in the controversy over Chick-fil-A. Chick-fil-A supporters are urging customers to show up Wednesday to buy from the restaurant chain, while protestors are planning a boycott on Thursday.
It all started when Chick-fil-A's President, Dan Cathy, blasted same-sex marriage during a radio interview.
"I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to try to redefine what marriage is about," he said on The Ken Coleman Show.
The comments have made Chick-fil-A Topic A in the national debate over same-sex marriage.
Even The Muppets have gotten involved in the controversy, with Jim Henson Productions saying it won't do business with Chick-fil-A.
Jon Stewart joked, "The Muppets were partnered with Chick-fil-A? Did Big Bird know about that?"
Joking aside, Chick-fil-A has over 1,600 restaurants nationwide and $4 billion in sales.
Now, some are wondering if entering the debate over same-sex marriage will be good or bad business for Chick-fil-A.
