Opponents of Arizona's new anti-immigrant law are calling for a boycott of the state's products - including the popular Arizona Iced Tea.
The problem: Arizona Iced Tea is actually brewed in New York.
Online, misguided tea fans vowed to switch to Lipton or Snapple.
"Dear Arizona: If you don't change your immigration policy, I will have to stop drinking your enjoyable brand of iced tea," Twittered Jody Beth in Los Angeles.
"It is the drink of fascists," wrote Travis Nichols in Chicago.
The company did not return messages asking if they planned to set the public straight.
Founded in Brooklyn in 1992, the firm was based in Queens before moving into a new $35 million headquarters in Nassau County last year.

Typical little red diaper doper baby neo-Marxist...dumb as a post.
On the other hand, what products are actually MADE in Arizona? We should start a list. We can’t use their boycott list as a basis...
Because apparently the moron left can’t even get THAT right.
Let’s punish a private company for state business.
“It is the drink of fascists,” wrote Travis Nichols (mental giant)
During the Cold War, I REFUSED to have Russian dressing on my salads! Ahem, man’s gotta’ take a stand somewhere.
Liberals continue to demonstrate their stupidity for all to see!
It amazes me how the people who are screeching and shrieking the loudest are people who are not anywhere near Arizona, New Mexico or Texas.
Ruger, Robar and McMillan all manufacture in AZ.
Ice tea? Yeah, that’s it. Let’s see them avoid anything containing copper, too.
Typical dim voter, dumb as a stump.
And I refused to take one drink of vodka! Sure, I don't drink vodka but I would have refused to take a drink of the stuff if anyone had offered it to me! :-)
"Jody Beth", that is just so precious!!
These are the future of our country ?
I think it's long past due for us conservatives to have a counter boycott list. This has long been one of the (effective)tactics of the left and us conservatives are late to the game. We can't rely only on winning elections.
I am going to stop eating Rice-A-Rony because of those idiots in San Fran call for a boycott!
Idiots indeed! Next they’ll suggest that nobody take a Hawaii cruise on the USS Arizona.
