The hashtags #Goyaway and #BoycottGoya have been trending on Twitter, while some Hispanics also expressed disappointment with the CEO's praise for Trump, a president who they say continuously attacks Latinos. 

US Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Julián Castro lead calls to boycott Goya Foods after CEO's praise for Donald Trump.

Twitter users are calling to boycott Goya Foods after its CEO praised President Donald Trump. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/07/09/goya-foods-ceo-donald-trump-goyaway-twitter/5411668002/

A brilliant Hispanic academic and a close friend says. I will never buy Goya again! After Puerto Rico gave them a rebirth of their brand and helped them catapult the brand worldwide, this is how Francisco Unanue‘s descendants repay the suffering people of the island.  His children went to school there. The CEO is Robert Unanue and Francisco Unanue runs the Miami office.

Latino civil rights attorney and friend writes the following. “To say “we are truly blessed” to have Trump as POTUS in my view is to condone children in cages; banning the worlds oppressed (who then are enabled to become our best and brightest) to come to the US and continue making the US what has represented for generations; it means to allow and accept hostile governments to intervene in our electoral processes; it means to allow hostile governments to put bounties on our soldiers and sit idly by and allow it; it means to approve and condone an attempted coup by Trump which the High Command at the Pentagon then had to run interference and stop him (that was on June

BTW there are serious discussions among civil and human rights lawyers to review the possibility of charging Trump with genocide and or crimes against humanity for his handling of the pandemic. Franky is our brother and will always be; but the words of Goya’s CEO are reminiscent of similar statements made by the Krupps, Ferdinand Porsche, the Von Moltke and countless other industrialists in the 1930s Germany. His words are in marked contrast to the men who signed the Declaration of Independence who became persecuted; men who valued freedom above all else.

Eli Wiesel said words to the effect that to not take a stand against such oppression is to be a part of it”

A member of the media and former peacock colleague took offense at the boycott stating... So now we're going after our own. Just because he met with the president. By the way, he also met with Obama. So it’s now if you don’t agree with the Democrats you're wrong. That my friend is truly racist!
