Celebs & Politicians Call for Goya Boycott After CEO Praises Trump

People on Twitter, including celebrities and politicians, are calling for a boycott of Goya Foods after the company’s CEO Robert Unanue praised President Trump during a visit to the White House.

Unanue gave a speech in the Rose Garden on Thursday (July 9) and he said the country is “blessed” to have Trump running the country right now.

“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder,” he said. “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.”

Unanue‘s comments are facing a lot of criticsm as Goya has many Hispanic customers and Trump has not had a strong relationship with the Hispanic community throughout his presidency. He has described immigrants from Mexico as “rapists” and “criminals.”

Celebrities like Chrissy Teigen, Pitch Perfect‘s Chrissie Fit and Hamilton‘s Javier Munoz, as well as politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Julian Castro, have spoken out against Goya.
