The donation was spotted by reporter Gabe Schneider, who shared the news on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.
“In-N-Out added a new item to their secret menu,” Schneider tweeted.
A number of Twitter users immediately called for a boycott of the fast food chain, using the hashtag #boycottinnout.
“No more for me,” one user tweeted. “I refuse to spend money at any firm (when I have choices) that donates money to the Republican party or any Republican candidate.”
“So @innoutburger just gave $25,000 to the CA Republican Party,” tweeted another. “I’ve successfully boycotted fast food chains before, and I intend to do it again. #boycottinnoutburger.”
However, not everyone was willing to get in on the boycott.
“I’m not boycotting In N Out,” tweeted one account. “They’re based in a Republican part of the state (Orange County). Stands to reason they might support one.”
“Yo, In N Out could give the California GOP $30 MILLION in contributions and I’ll still keep eating there,” another person said. “Republicans will never take back the state, no matter how many Double Doubles they sell.”
