The president and CEO of Goya Foods, Bob Unanue, supported President Donald Trump by saying we are lucky to have him. That sparked an instant backlash on social media with celebrity Chrissy Teigen being one of the big names to speak out against Goya.
She pushed the concept of her boycotting them and that spiraled out of control, all because a guy prefers Donald Trump instead of Joe Biden.
Unanue said, "We're all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder." Unanue is of Spanish descent, if anyone is wondering.
He also spoke with Fox & Friends, saying “We were part of a commission called the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative and they called on us to be there to see how we could help opportunities within the economic and educational realm for prosperity among Hispanics and among the United States.” (Fox News)
The Goya Foods CEO has also stated that he will not apologize to anyone for his support of his preferred candidate for president of the United States.
Chrissy Teigen went off and freaked out on Twitter over it.
We are now at the point in the next election where people cannot like the candidate of their own preference without getting harassed and scolded online.
Instead of people having the freedom to like who they want without being criticized left and right, people who pick their candidate and let others know, now face boycotts, criticism, harassment, and any other nonsense that comes with liking Trump or Biden.
In a normal non-2020 year, we might see people having decent discussions about candidates.
But if any business owner says they like Trump, the leftwing instantly attack them.
It shouldn't be like that.
It should be like this - "oh, you like that guy? OK, well I like this guy. Cool. End of story." And no one does hateful or hurtful things to each other over politics.
I will never boycott something I enjoy over politics.
I will never make fun of someone or boycott them for liking Trump or Biden. I will make fun of the candidates, but my fellow Americans can support whoever they want and I don't care one bit.
This sh*t is out of control.
