Free speech gives Goya's CEO the right to love Trump.

 

Free speech gives AOC the right to call for a boycott.

What's the problem? This how a free society functions. Ask Rosa Parks about the buses in Montgomery.

Just think of it as one more poll on the president's performance.

This is a much better response...  I love it!  "Buycott"...  LOL!!

 

 

Many took to social media to express their displeasure with Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue after he praised President Trump at a White House event on Thursday, but others are flipping the narrative and calling for a Goya Foods "buy-cott."

 

GOYA FOODS SLAMMED BY AOC, CELEBRITIES AFTER CEO PRAISES TRUMP

 

"My brother came up with a terrific idea and I am encouraging all to join me in purchasing $10 worth of Goya Foods products and donating them to your local food bank," self-described "conservatarian" radio host Mike Opelka wrote on Twitter. "Let's push a BUY-cott, not a boycott. Let's show the #Goyaway people what compassion can do.

 

Opelka's post received 27,000 likes.

 

"Go out today and buy your Goya foods," Fox News host Mark Levin wrote on Twitter.

Goya Foods CEO praises Trump, and thousands online say #BoycottGoya “We all truly blessed...to have a leader like President Trump,” he said, and many called for a boycott of Goya’s products, citing Trump’s history of derogatory comments toward Hispanics

NEW YORK (AP) — Goya Foods is facing a swift backlash after its CEO praised President Donald Trump at White House event.

 

Goya was founded in Manhattan in 1936 by Prudencio Unanue and his wife Carolina, immigrants from Spain. The company calls itself the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States.

Goya CEO Robert Unanue, a grandson of the founders, spoke at a Rose Garden event announcing a “Hispanic Prosperity Initiative” on Thursday.

 

“We all truly blessed, at the same time, to have a leader like President Trump who is a builder,” Unanue said standing at a podium beside Trump.

 

Almost immediately, #BoycottGoya, #GoyaFoods and #Goyaway began trending on social-media platforms like Twitter TWTR, -4.46%, with scorn coming seemingly from all directions, including from some notable political names.

 

Many were angered by the support, citing Trump’s history of derogatory comments and harsh policies toward Hispanics, most notably, the administration’s policy of separating immigrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border.

 

Former presidential candidate Julián Castro was among those to take to Twitter, saying Unanue praised someone who villainizes Goya’s customer base.

 

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York said she would learn to make from scratch some of the Latin cuisine that Goya makes.

 

Goya did not immediately comment.

 

According to the Pew Research Center, 13.3% of eligible voters in the U.S. this year are Latino, a record high.

 

Trump has been working recently to court Latino voters, who could swing the vote in states such as Arizona. On Wednesday, he welcomed President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to the White House with lofty language, calling Mexico a cherished partner. Trump’s tone was in stark contrast from when he kicked off his 2016 presidential campaign by referring to some Mexican migrants as “rapists” and railed against those entering the United States illegally.

 

Goya recently donated thousands of pounds of food to families in the Bronx and Harlem who have been affected by COVID-19. The company also made a donation to a public school in Queens.

The "Cancel culture" needs to be cancelled...  You people have become a nuisance and most people have stopped paying you much attention...  Get over yourselves.
