When one starts insulting others for their views, expect a response.

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy bites into gay-marriage debate - Post Leadership - The Washington Post

"So why have Cathy’s comments caused such a stir? On the one hand, you could argue leaders of businesses, particularly private, family-owned ones, should be able to speak their minds. But when a business leader elects to take a public and vocal position on a hot-button political issue in an election year, he or she also risks losing the support of many of its customers. It is one thing to be an organization that “operate[s] on biblical principles”—staying closed on Sundays, making donations to groups it supports, remaining debt-free. But it is quite another to imply that people who support same-sex marriage—many of whom are surely customers—have a “prideful, arrogant attitude.”"
