Barilla Pasta Chairman Comes Out As Anti-Gay
Barilla Pasta is fully committed to keeping the gays off of carbs!
The company's chairman Guido Barilla publicly come out as anti-gay on Wednesday.
According to The Independent:
Guido Barilla, whose firm has almost half the Italian pasta market and a quarter of that in the US, told Italy’s La Zanzara radio show last night: “I would never do an advert with a homosexual family…if the gays don’t like it they can go and eat another brand.
“For us the concept of the sacred family remains one of the fundamental values of the company.”
He added: “Everyone has the right to do what they want without disturbing those around them”. But then the pasta magnate upped the ante by attacking gay adoption. “I have no respect for adoption by gay families because this concerns a person who is not able to choose," he said.
Apparently the company's already feeling the backlash, hence their swift apology today.
Guido Barilla says:
“I’m sorry if my comments on La Zanzara have created misunderstanding or polemic, or if I’ve offended anyone. In the interview I only wanted to underline the central role of the woman in the family."
Nah. We're good.
We'll eat literally any other pasta brand now. Thanks.
Gays, you know what to do.
