Buy San Giorgio! Or Ronzoni! Or Prince, or Smart Taste, or Healthy Harvest, or Creamette, or Skinner, or American Beauty, or Catelli (in Canada) - all made by the same company and much better than Barilla any day.
Yes! WAY too much of this going on these days. Everything has become so ridiculously PC these days, it is like walking on egg shells that you might say something that will blown all out of proportion.
I don't agree with all of Obama's ideas......... "GASP! OMG racist, racist!"
Oh, come on. This guy doesn't support adoption for gay couples. Denying someone rights based on who they sleep with and love is wrong. He also clearly has other hang ups about gay and lesbian couples.
Denying someone rights based on something like skin color or sexual orientation or gender=prejudice.
Not liking the president's policies= not liking his policies
There are idiots who say anyone who opposes Obama is racist. There are also idiots like my uncle who states regularly that he "doesn't like Obama because who can trust a black man" and then whines when people call him racist. I'm sorry if you were called racist when you're not an idiot like my uncle.
Eat it, don't eat it, up to you. If I let CEO personal opinions worry me, I would have had to give up Ben and Jerry's long ago. And that was NOT going to happen.....
To a point you are right.
On another, you are off. But that's ok. I am guessing if it bothers one enough, one makes changes to a habit.
I think it sucks when a CEO rather downsizes than provide the people who make the money for him with essential benefits.
But I don't like Papa John's much anyhow. We have a couple of locally owned places that beat his stuff by miles.
I think Hobby Lobby is off the deep end with their ideas.
But by in large, they don't bother me, but amuse me.
but I think somebody needs to point out to the owner that with him peddling his merchandize from China, he is financing one of the things he is strictly against: Abortion.
But in general, I don't give money to people, individuals or groups, who do not respect me. I value myself more than to be a cash cow only.
And no, I am also rather cheap, Barilla has hardly ever crossed my thresh hold.
But it is funny that with one statement their CEO dumped on two groups.
One small, the other rather large.
(and I think Lesbians also were offended, although he seems to think gay=male and only male...then again, he might enjoy some chick on chick action...)

Absolutely within his rights...and I'll keep buying Barilla pasta and sauces. Political correctness doesn't enter into my buying choices no matter who's ox is being gored.
I'll never buy anything with Paul Newman's face on the label, same with any movie with Jane Fonda in it.
Just had to laugh at this complete contradiction again. We sure wouldn't want to buy ANYTHING with Paul Newman's face on it would we? Don't profits from his company go to help other people?
And I am pretty sure his company employs people as well...
Oh wait, he might have been a liberal. Say no more.
Perhaps msj you didn't read Trakehner's whole statement?
