51314369 story Social Networks Force Barilla Chairman To Apologize For His Anti-gay Remarks 456 Posted by Soulskill on Saturday September 28, 2013 @09:43AM from the don't-poke-the-internet-with-a-stick dept. ifchairscouldtalk writes "Pasta maker Barilla is in hot water over its chairman's anti-gay comments. Guido Barilla said his brand would 'never feature gays in ads' because Barilla does not agree with them. He added, '[if gay people] like our pasta and our advertising, they'll eat our pasta, if they don't like it then they will not eat it and they will eat another brand.' Vehement protest worldwide calling for a boycott of Barilla products via Twitter and Facebook forced the chairman to apologize with a video on Facebook."
