Days of Our Lives' Melissa Reeves has decided to shut down her Twitter account. The actress caused a heated debate, among soap fans, fellow actors and the soap and mainstream press, when she tweeted support of Chick-fil-A Appriciation Day earlier this month. On deciding to close her account, Reeves tweeted:
Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day was orchestrated following the company's COO Dan Cathy coming under fire for quotes in a Christian magazine supporting "traditional marriage". It is a matter of public record that Cathy and Chick-fil-A have also donated funds to anti-gay rights organizations, such as Exodus International.
