Social networks force Barilla chairman to apologize for his anti-gay remarks

ifchairscouldtalk (1031944) writes "Pasta maker Barilla is in hot water over chairman's anti-gay comments. Guido Barilla said his brand would 'never feature gays in ads' because Barilla does not agree with them adding that 'if gays don't like it, they can choose another pasta.' Vehement protest worldwide calling for a boycott of Barilla products via Twitter and Facebook forced the chairman to apologize with a video on Facebook."
