CEO of Barilla Pasta has caused a bit of controversy with remarks that indicate his disapproval of homosexuality. In response to a public outcry that started in Italy and thanks to social media has traveled around the world, the firm recently issued the following statement, “I apologize if my words generated misunderstandings or arguments, or if they offended the sensibilities of some people.”
The apology is appreciated but is clearly just a PR statement. I’m assuming that his pasta will soon be appearing on the Chick-fil-A menu and Sarah Palin will be running down for a photo op. What cozy company this dick of the week will keep. Unimpressed and want to express your frustration?
