Chrissy Teigen and More Celebs Join Goya Boycott After CEO Praises Donald Trump

Chrissy Teigen is the newest to hitch the Goya boycott after its CEO praised President Trump.

On July 9, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue gave a speech on the White House to announce plans to donate one million pounds of food to meals banks throughout the U.S. in honor of Trump signing the Hispanic Prosperity Initiative govt order. However, he confronted swift backlash for saying “we’re all truly blessed to have a leader like President Trump.”

Video of the speech shortly made the rounds on social media, with many customers upset that “America’s largest Hispanic-owned food company” would assist a president who has known as Mexicans rapists, places immigrant children in cages, and continues to try to dismantle DACA

“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump who is a builder,” Unanue said. “And so we have an incredible builder. And we pray. We pray for our leadership, our president, and we pray for our country, that we will continue to prosper and to grow.”

The newest to hitch the #BoycottGaya motion? Cravings creator Chrissy Teigen and extra celebrities. “FUUUUUUUCK,” Teigen tweeted on July 10. “A shame. Don’t care how good the beans taste though. Bye bye.”

“The next step republicans will do (mark my words, they did this with my equinox tweets as well) is say you aren’t supporting the workers if you boycott,” Teigen continued. “You ARE. They should never feel they have to work for someone who agrees Mexicans are ‘vile’ ‘rapists’ – FUCK this guy. Support the workers by empowering them to be stronger than this absolute bastard. I will personally do what I can to financially ensure these farms can carry on without them.”

In one other reply, Teigen added, “You think they’re going under? I see a new Karen every day spouting off in a Trader Joe’s who will gleefully buy the beans. Don’t worry about fucking GOYA.”

“We learned to bake bread in this pandemic, we can learn to make our own adobo con pimienta,” Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator and star of Hamilton chimed in. “Bye.”

Here are just some extra:

The Goya CEO has not backed down from his place, a minimum of going by a July 10 interview on Fox & Friends. “So, you’re allowed to talk good or to praise one president, but you’re not allowed to aid in economic and educational prosperity? And you make a positive comment and all of a sudden, it is not acceptable,” Unanue mentioned, describing the pushback as “suppression of speech.”
