  1. He says he’s blessed to have a fortune…speaks volumes.

  2. It shows that whenever you start to have money you forget your roots and that power corrupts.

  3. When you choose money over your people. Oh boya

  4. This journalist asks, ” Why step into it?” I can answer that easily.
    This guy and his family are part of an elite class that believes they are superior to the common man. To say he’s tone deaf is an understatement. He’s completely clueless.
    So, I wholeheartedly support this boycott! It’s past time for “The People” to speak up!

    • He was there to ask Trump for some of those PPP millions.

      3 days ago he was fine?? The real elites are the Latino “leadership” that tells Latinos how to vote. How long before the Uncle Tomas label starts getting pinned on folks that think for themselves?

    No more Goya products for me until this CEO QUITS behind this!

      Nathaniel Lollis Goya gives money to scads of right wing causes. The CEO’s words are just the tip of the iceberg.

    • He can quit. Still no Goya

    • @Jose Martinez I have some coconut milk and coconut water in my pantry now. I’m not buying more. There are other products.

    I’m not a Latina and would be described as a white middle class middle aged woman. I will NEVER buy another Goya product. Ever. Hasta luego, Goya

    • Agree. I won’t buy again too. I will buy other brands. He may make a lot of money from PPP. SHAME ON HIM.

      Wow and goya is gonna go broke wow you stupid

      Sadly, the company gets the blame for what its CEO said. The company should find a way to permanently oust their brainless maga moron CEO and be allowed to continue on as before. The company and its employees deserve to be seen as being apart and judged on its own brand merits. It would be a shame to see this brand disappear.

    • ​@Alexander Burawa, the only thing to save the company asks him to resign. It may go back to normal. Many CEO did that before.

    We will repay him with our dollars, I’m telling all my friends to stop buying their products, we will see what happens next

  8. Let’s really make America great by getting rid of the grifter abomination occupying 1600 Penn.

  9. We need to just not buy the products, we are blessed to have other options too, go expand in Alabama

  10. He’s living in a bubble, shielded by their millions!!

  11. He said he won’t but I can’t wait for that “phoney” apology and yes it’s coming it always does!

  12. Who could’ve guessed that a rich CEO would be out-of-touch with the current zeitgeist?

    Two men: Both born with a golden spoon! No clue of the daily struggles in life!

  14. remember: history does not go away just because you don’t know what it is.

    “If you ain’t boycotting Goya you ain’t Hispanic”… Joe Biden

    I remember the Atlanta bus boycott when the bus company didn’t realize that 70% of their customers were black made them do an about-face quick😨

  17. I stand with the Latinos no more got a in my pantry ever again

  18. He said “He’ll no” let’s show him what a boycott looks like.

  19. *Where you spend your dollars in a capitalist society is almost the equivalent of voting in a way. Why would we make people rich that stand against our core value*

    He’s free to support whomever he pleases. And people are free to spend their dollars elsewhere.
