    Ashley Judd hammers Chik-fil-A for UK basketball promotion

    Ashley Judd Hammers Chick-fil-A for Promtion that Encourages UK Fans to Make Noise | Nation of Blue

    Kentucky “super fan” Ashley Judd isn’t happy with Chick-fil-A’s promotion that encourages UK fans to make noise during opponents’ free throws.
    The way the promotion works, if an opposing player misses two free throws during a trip to the line, UK students get free Chick-fil-A.
    Judd posted this on Twitter:

    Your promotion for fans to cheer against kids attempting free throws is tacky. Please find another in game promotion. @ChickfilA

    .@AshleyJudd Maybe you don't understand, we WANT the opponent to miss. Always. Every single time. Free chicken biscuit or not.

    @AshleyJudd @ChickfilA Respectfully disagree. Cheering against opponent is part of the fun. Your not wishing them harm.

    Hammering Chik-Fil-A is not acceptable. Thank God she isn't a Duke fan.

    You're as bad as Ashely LOL

    Is there something wrong with the promotion?

    How is it any different than Larossa's giving free pizza when the Reds get 11 strikeouts?

    I thought that was a clever promotion and good way to get the fans into the game. I mentioned it at the time to my wife.

    I love Ashley but I can't agree with her on this. Rupp already has a tendency of just watching the game, rather than being a true difficult environment for opponents. If this helps create more noise and more misses, then that is a good thing.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with the promotion. Hell, I'm not a UK fan but I'd cheer my butt off for some free Chik-Fil-A. Word up, 2C!

    It's wrong to make noise at a basketball game! And don't you ever, ever cheer for those innocent kids to miss a shot!

    Im freaking appalled at UK fans for cheering against an opponent. How dare they root against the other team.

    There's nothing wrong with Ashley having an opinion, but one such as this should be mentioned only to her sister, mom, or friends. Most UK fans spend too much time sitting as if they're at a wake to begin with, so anything to help the fans get involved is a good thing.

    Is this really "hammering" Chik Fil A ?

    If it wasn't Ashley, nobody would care or RT anyway.

    For the record, as long as Ms. Judd continues to put out covers and posters, I don't care who or what she tweets at....just sayin'
