Posted on 09/26/2013 3:13:33 PM PDT by barmag25
The president of Barilla is apologizing for saying that he would never use a gay family in the pasta maker's ads.
Guido Barilla said in an Italian radio interview that his pasta is for the traditional family and said gay people could eat another pasta if they did not like his message.
"We accept his invitation to not eat his pasta," said Aurelio Mancuso, president of gay-rights group Equality Italia, in a statement in Italian.
Boycotting Twitter users shared the hashtag #boicottabarilla, or "boycott Barilla."
But Barilla quickly walked back his comments.

Gay Nazis strike again.
Do not bend to the gays.
Both meanings intended.
The pendulum will swing.
As far as I can see here he did not 'walk that back'.
BTW its funny to me how the MSM wastes no time correcting any unauthorized thoughts publicly expressed.
NEVER apologize for being right. Homosexuality is a perversion, an affront to God and Nature.....
Now that he has demonstrated his cowardice, I would urge heterosexuals to boycott his pasta. Sell it to the fags, chickensh_t. You’re so scared of them ...
Hardly a walk back. Seems like a ‘snide’ apology. haha
Gay Nazis? More like Gay Mafia.
I have never seen a whinier bunch than poofters. Maybe it come from taking it up the rear so often.
They need to constantly redirect their self hatred.
He didn’t walk anything back, he was being polite and held fast to his view. At least from what I see here.. The media is just trying to turn his supporters against him like they did with chickfila
Two percent of the population are ruling the world.
What is this? The new way of PR?
A perfect example where it is not enough to tolerate homosexuality, as Mr. Barilla said in the iterview, but you must ACCEPT homosexuality as well.
I have a pantry-full of Barilla products in our pantry.
Out they go!
The calculus is simple. Which is the biggest market? The perverts? Or normal traditional families most of which are disgusted with aggressively militant deviants?
Doesn’t sound like a backdown to me. Sounds like he said “Sorry if you’re too sensitive to the truth. Mothers and fathers are best.”
I just don’t understand why people are so intimidated by a bunch of sexual deviants. Why apologize or even qualify the original statement? He wouldn’t have made it if he didn’t believe it....good grief, OWN IT, and to hell with what the queers think.
you’re overreacting. he didn’t back down. read it again, publius.
