We may soon have another Chick-fil-A situation on our hands.
In an interview on an Italian radio show today, Barilla Group Chairman Guido Barilla said his company would never run an ad with a "homosexual couple." He then explained why:
"Not for lack of respect but because we don’t agree with them. Ours is a classic family where the woman plays a fundamental role."
According to a Reuters translation, Barilla said of any firestorm that may come his way as a result of this stance: "If [gays] don’t like it, they will not eat it and they will eat another brand."
