Good question. In case you hadn’t heard, Barilla Group chairman Guido Barilla said in an Italian radio interview Wednesday that the world’s largest pasta company had no plans to feature same-sex families in its advertising — “not for lack of respect toward homosexuals, who have the right to do whatever they want without disturbing others,” he explained, “but because I don’t agree with them and I think we want to talk to traditional families.”

Barilla’s comments about the “the sacral family” were reminiscent of Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s plea of “guilty as charged” to believing in the “biblical definition of the family unit.” That remark led to a boycott that eventually led to a massive “buycott.” As Teigen says, though, pasta is a lot easier to replace than a delicious Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich.

A boycott was sadly inevitable; the only question is who can come up with the most clever way of calling for one.

Homophobia sauce?

Lame. Maybe we’d better leave the boycott tweets to the professional (model).

What? No hate!

        I keep wondering why anyone is being forced to take a “STANCE?” Are we not allowed to have a different opinion? I don’t see the same people attacking Muslims who take it a whole other level! Don’t take this to mean I am against gays or gay marriage. I don’t care either way. It’s just that some people, for religious reasons, have a different belief. Why are they not allowed that? This Navy Officer would not make a statement in support of Gay Marriage. He didn’t want to take a stand either way, so he was punished. Why? He said nothing negative. He just wanted to keep his beliefs to himself.

        • Orpheus75

          nice that the one tweet said, “..NO Tolerance for Intolerance”. Yet they themselves have NO Tolerance for those opposing THEIR views.

          • tobsters777

            So… let me get this straight… no tolerance for intolerance… hmmm… doesn’t the very DEFINITION of intolerance mean no tolerance for?

            This my friends needs to go into the dictionary right next to the word hypocrisy… un-flippin-believable… SMH!

          • Frank Drebin

            And the last tweet, reminding what’s really important here…

            “let us not love too much and remember to hate…”

          • jetch

            yup, absolutely right. they *think* they’re in the right so therefore it’s okay to be intolerant of the other side.
            never mind that every bigot thinks they’re right. any racist will tell you why he is right in thinking the way he does.

        • WhoMeToo

          …because “tolerance” or something.

        • Rightturn

          In your belief, just how do a ‘STANCE’ and an ‘opinion’ differ from each other?

          • thetreyman

            maybe, “stance” is active and “opinion” is passive.

        • RobertMorgan1964

          “I don’t care either way” about something as outrageous, as absurd, as inarguably wrong on every conceivable level as gay “marriage”? This is the kind of attitude- and I understand that fear of reprisal has a lot to do with it- that gives this tiny percent of the population its immense power.

      • Baby Jesus

        What’s really silly is that this whole discourse is totally unnecessary. Guido Barilla felt a need to go on the record saying his comoany would never feature a gay couple in any of its advertising. So what? Fine. I doubt anyone asked him to. He didn’t need to say anything, but by putting it out there he decided to take a public stand. He now has to live with whatever consequences (which I doubt will be significant) come of it. And you think that liberals are the only sad little snowflakes, you might want to look into the myriad boycotts called for by One Million Moms (of which there are actually less than 50,000), American Family Association, and the insane conservative boycott of Ebony magazine over its August cover…I mean, conservatives have pretty much been boycotting Ebony for decades, amirite?

        • QuadGMoto

          He was asked during an interview and gave a honest answer. It’s not like he was out trying to shove his ideology down others’ throats, like, say, the homosexual lobby does.

          • Baby Jesus

            You make it sound like Christians haven’t been voicing their intolerance for centuries or something. LGBT “intolerance” is simply a response to centuries of persecution. Want the LGBT to shut up? Stop condemning them. You started it.

          • QuadGMoto

            first off christians do not hate anyone that lie comes from intollerant idiots do we believe homosexuality is a sin yes but the person is to be treated as we wish to be treated with love as Christ said love one another , so no we didn’t start it you liberals did

        • Ryan Johnson

          Something not appealing to people doesn’t count as a boycott. Ebony does not appeal to me as it is mostly for liberal black women, and I am not a conservative, neither am I liberal or a woman. I don’t read Seventeen and Cosmo, that doesn’t mean I boycotted them.

        • TocksNedlog

          Try actually reading the Twitchy article next time, eh?

        • jetch

          so what are you saying?? you’re kinda all over the place with no clear point. it’s like you hit reply and starting typing a bunch of words.
          the boycott of ebony magazine was debunked (on this website for pete’s sake!). what’s really insane is your lack of facts and your desire to show it. as you said yourself, you “didn’t need to say anything”, but you just had to go and prove yourself a fool.

          • Baby Jesus

            Nah, just pointing out what pathetic fools all you Tealiban tards are.

    • jaun456

      She is a waste, I think I will go out and buy some Barilla pasta.

      • Baby Jesus

        Which is precisely what we expect conservatives to do, in a further display of their intolerance of LGBTs and support of companies that publicly (and proudly) voice the same.

        • MartiniShark

          You understand of course this entire post is based on a model displaying intolerance towards another man’s opinion? No, you simply want to vent towards somebody who did not genuflect towards a group with an approved amount deference in his opinion.

          That opinion, by the way, clearly stated he WAS tolerant of others, he just expressed his own feelings on a subject. But please, spout some more of your intolerance towards a differing opinion while lecturing with a NOH8 mantra.

        • mike_in_kosovo

          Maybe it’s in protest of the LGBT’s intolerance to any view besides their own?

        • digitalPimple

          Hey Irregardless, don’t be such a sad Panda.. :(

        • dwsmokin

          Actually, it’s more display of tolerance of ALL viewpoints. For the same reason we will continue to shop at a company whose ownership may have a different social opinion than ours, we don’t assume they “hate” anybody-they have a different opinion. It doesn’t make them war-mongers, or evil, we just disagree with them. The only hate I see seems to come from the boycotters themselves.

        • Spinmamma

          See Jefferson Tea Party’s post above re meaning of tolerance.

        • Ryan Johnson

          GOH with your perpetual victimhood. Being against homosexuality is NOT being against homosexuals. You don’t hear smokers complaining about Truth PSAs. Take a lesson from them. Companies are allowed to outright endorse homosexuality (and that I choose to ignore, I still eat Oreos and I still get clothes from JC Penny) but let a company say they support the traditional family, then its a problem. Well, no more. You can no longer dictate what people can and cannot say.

          • Mr_Wrestling_XIII

            Exactly, the only ones espousing intolerance here are so-called “tolerant” people, not the Barlilla Co. God, I hate these phony boycotts!

            Now, being gay is cool… I vividly remember being mocked during my childhood and adolescence for being “gay”. I was called that, because I wasn’t good at sports, for the kind of clothes I wear, and the type of music I listened to (I had a obsession with Mariah Carey’s music at the time, lol). It wasn’t that long ago. Now, it’s a complete 180, I’m being mocked just for simply having a different opinion on gay marriage! I just can get a break! People are weird… lol

        • jkpalmdale

          You sound like the intolerant one.

        • Michael Rice

          So, you are saying the gays can have their boycot, but conservatives can’t buy, for the same reasons? Because that is how it reads to me…hypocrite.

          • Baby Jesus

            Not at all. In fact I said it’s predictable that y’all would buy from a company that expresses judgment against LGBT’s. Go right ahead; like I said, it’s totally predictable. If you publicly and proudly want to support hate, go right on ahead. I ain’t stoppin’ ya.

        • TocksNedlog

          Perhaps you should compile a list of companies that have never depicted same-sex couples in their advertising; then you and your friends can start a letter-writing campaign in order to tell them what to do.

        • jetch

          you’re an idiot with no idea what intolerance means. you’re all consuming desire to “fix” everyone who doesn’t think like you do, is really disturbing. maybe spend more time on yourself and less on policing others, and you’d finally find some happiness.

          • Baby Jesus

            I think you win today’s “non sequitur” award. Congratulations!

        • jaun456

          Really you would expect that ? That most people are tired of this BS PC being forced on everyone and when a company doesn’t share your views you boycott them and scream like a little Bit. Tough sh. Now I am going to go out and buy some more and give some to my son and donate the rest to a food pantry charity. You know how uncharitable us conservatives are.

          • Baby Jesus

            Not only did I expect it, commenters here have been proving it for over 24 hours now. After regressives flocked to Chik-Fil-A after their public statements against homosexuality, I totally expected the same reaction to Barrilla. And y’all didn’t disappoint. So predictable!

      The tempest Teigen fancies herself as a high-brow, intellectual supermodel but she’s essentially nothing more than a blathering bandeau-wearing “look at my boobs” narcissist throwing yet another one of her toddler-esque thumb-tapping Twitter tantrums. In this case, opening up the vault between her ears to muse about the eating habits of a man comfortably in his 60’s, which is hysterically ironic, considering the eyes of this judgmental jackass appear to be mounted directly at the equator of her own face.

      What more intellectual nuggets shall linguine liberal or fettuccine fembot thrust upon us…..that Friday, not Wednesday, be mandated as Prince spaghetti day?

    • pajamakat

      No, it’s not just you. I think they will do anything to get their 15 mins of fame. Anyway, who is Christine Teigen? I never heard of her. What rock did she crawl out from under ?

    • Andy from Beaverton

      Yea, just like the religion of peace is ironic.

      • Katie

        Yes, this sounds about right. It’s ‘tolerance’ only if I wholeheartedly agree with what you’re saying. If I dare disagree, I am somehow ‘intolerant’.

    • Richo

      What exactly is “ironic” about it? As if you even know what the word means. Choosing not to give your money to a particular corporation when one of their higher-ups makes a statement you disagree with is perfectly tolerant, and something conservatives do all the time (google boycotts of Home Depot, JC Penney, Starbucks, General Mills, ad nauseum)

  • Jefferson Tea Party

    Ok, at what point did the meaning of the word “tolerance” change to “enthusiastic supporter of”?

    Gay fascists hate freedom. So will they have another Floyd Corkins?

    • Baby Jesus

      If they hate freedom, then why are they fighting for it?

      • thetreyman

        the definition of freedom is not acceptance. it is to do as you like free from impedance. this goes both ways.

        • Baby Jesus

          That’s actually what they’re fighting for. LGBTs are impeded by not having access to the same rights and benefits of the majority of society due to unconstitutional laws and religious subjugation and persecution. This country and world will NEVER come to a place where everyone accepts everyone else (sadly), but if we can’t all accept each other, perhaps we could all at least be equal. To be against equality is to be against freedom. Ask a gay soldier or veteran (I know the thought of them sickens you) if they hate freedom. Go on, I dare ya.

      • thetreyman

        and not for nothing but instead of throwing that pasta away, how about taking it to a homeless shelter or something. if you don’t want to buy anymore then fine but there is no sense in wasting something already purchased. or is there too much hate to feed the poor.

        • Baby Jesus

          What that has to do with my comment is beyond me. But a lack of reading comprehension or the ability to think for one’s self and not just spew the talking points fed to your by your masters is to be expected here.

          • thetreyman

            um, that was an aside point. as in don’t let your hate take precedence over rational thought like Ms Teigen did. taking a picture of unused food just to make a statement when there are plenty of food pantries and shelters that could use it is just sick. i can only hope that those boxes were already opened and she didn’t open them just to toss them in the trash for better effect.

      • roccolore

        Really? Is that why gay fascists are the ones who want to criminalize Christianity? Is that why gay fascists are the ones demanding “hate crime laws”?

      • trangbang68

        freedom to be a mindless politically correct clone. Listen to a conversation in a bar or coffee shop in a left coast city and close your eyes. You’ll think you’re in North Korea for the lack of and differing opinions. It’s a bunch of bright eyed too clever by half moral midgets screaming “look at me, I trumpet the party line better than you do”

        • Baby Jesus

          “look at me, I trumpet the party line better than you do”

          That’s actually a better way to describe the comments on this site. It’s always hilarious when regressives accuse liberals of the very things they themselves are most guilty of.

    • Richo

      Wow, so now your definition of fascism, and that of the 13 dimwits who liked your comment, extends to not buying a particular pasta product and using social media to encourage others to do the same? Good heavens what a bunch of whiny prissy historically illiterate brats you Twitchy-ites are.

      • roccolore

        You liberals are the dimwits. You are the same fascists who attacked Chick-Fil-A because their founder and CEO is a Christian. It was that liberal fascism and their anti-Christian hatred that led to Floyd Corkins shooting an employee of a Christian advocacy group. Do you liberal fascists want another Floyd Corkins?

        And you liberal fascists are the whiny brats who want to criminalize all signs of Christianity and eliminate Judaism, yet you are silent on Islam. I never see you gay fascists protest against the mosques, Islamic centers, or offices of terror-linked CAIR when they sponsor clerics who advocate the killing of gays.

        • Drew2U

          Apparently you need a history lesson–Chick Fil A was boycotted because they gave millions of dollars to “christian” organizations like Exodus International–the main sponsors of Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill.

          • roccolore

            You need the history lesson. You support Floyd Corkins. You want another Floyd Corkins.

          • Drew2U

            …I don’t support anyone who uses violence as a means to an end. Do you?

          • Guest

            No, but the “tolerant” and “nonviolent” left was praising Floyd Corkins for killing Leo Johnson, an employee of a Christian advocacy group.

          • Drew2U

            …Buy yourself a clue–every single LGBT group in this country expressed outrage at the shooting. The LGBT community has been on the receiving end of too much violence already, and people like Corker do NOTHING to support equality. You also need to get your story straight–Johnson was injured and not killed, and tha “christian advocacy group” is the Family Research Council.

      • roccolore

        And you liberals ARE fascist. You are anti-Jewish, anti-Christian, pro-abortion, pro-jihad, pro-Sharia, and you hate our troops.

    We eat a lot of Barilla pasta in my extended family, and that won’t change here. I don’t know or care who this Christine person is, as she obviously isn’t relevant to me at all, but she seems pretty babyish. What happened to free speech and the right to have your own opinion? I think homosexuality is a lifestyle choice not a genetic predisposition, and that it is sin. Bible seems pretty clear to me. But if they want to engage in that particular perversion I don’t care. Just don’t try to force the lifestyle on my kids or grandkids, and don’t even try to take away my right to say that it is sinful based on the tradition Judeo-Christian beliefs.

    So, a CEO deciding not to feature same-sex couples in ads is bad, yet gays getting stoned to in the Middle East doesn’t warrant constant condemnation… or any at all?

  • Ryan Johnson

    People, it’s time to STAND UP and say enough is ENOUGH. They have eroded our culture for too damn long, they have shut us up, we need to speak out and stop shutting up. We are NOT going to take this anymore. We will make our dissent heard. These people must be stopped.

    • nc ✓s & balances

      The sad thing is, the Barilla chairman spoke with such respect, and still got blasted because he said the “wrong” thing. You’re right, Damien, it shouldn’t take so much courage to voice your opinion, particularly when it reflects traditional values. There must be push-back.

      • Ryan Johnson

        Honestly I think we should’ve said something back when Brokeback Mountain came out. Because we didn’t, the culture added the likes of Glee and Modern Family, brainwashed all of America, and created a climate where Christians are not able to state that they love and accept homosexuals without approving of homosexuality. It’s just that we all have to, myself included, look past worrying about what other people think about us. Although it gets difficult when these things can cost one their job these days-then again, the Bible said this was going to happen.

        • nc ✓s & balances

          This is the way libbies have operated for years. They count on our good natured acceptance of things that generally aren’t any of our business. We live our lives and don’t like to make a fuss. Years ago we were called “The Silent Majority.”

          But like a cancer, while we weren’t paying enough attention, they were changing the culture, through the schools, the entertainment and now through the political system. When we started to push back, many of us were intimidated for awhile by their charges of racism, homophobia, etc., but no more. We don’t let them define us.

          Unfortunately, they still have that media and academia control, and this is a huge problem.

          • Ryan Johnson

            Cancer is the perfect word to describe.

        • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          Brokeback Mountain… uncle is gay and I do support gay marriage, if for no other reason than gays should be able to be as miserable and stuck as the rest of us. All joking aside, after I saw the movie, he asked me, “wasn’t it a wonderful love story?” I said, “no, they’re both jerks! WTH, cheating on your wives, one of them with kids. They’re just lying, cheating jerks.” For some reason, apparently, cheating men is a wonderful love story if they’re cheating with eachother.

          • Ryan Johnson

            Ah, double standards… gotta love them. Personally, my issue is not with gay “marriage.” It’s that they’re trying to call a same sex union a “marriage,” when they already have civil unions. They should get the same benefits as married couples underneath civil unions. My other problem with it is it’s all show-they want to get “married” because being known as a “marriage” validates them. It might on Earth in their and their sympathizers minds, but not in people who know better.

      • Ryan Johnson

        I’m also going to mention more media hypocrisy. It’s funny how these folks act so self-righteous as if they are morally above the Chairman of Barilla for approving homosexuality. Antoine Dodson, viral youtube star, was homosexual. Earlier this year he announced he was renouncing homosexuality and he said he desires to find a woman and have kids. Instead of being “supported” and “tolerated,” he was ridiculed for trying to “pray the gay away.” he is not the only one as their are several videos on youtube of people giving their testimonies of how they are no longer homosexual. These things will never make it on tv because it destroys their narrative of “you’re born that way” and of “you cannot change.”

  • Jack Deth

    Let me get this straight.

    A WASPy living mannequin with a standardized liberal IQ is going to argue family values with a multi-national and very rich Catholic Italian family and expect to win?

  • Mr_Wrestling_XIII

    Guido Barilla respectfully answered the question without disparaging homosexuals. Now, he’s being a labeled a “homophobe”, a “bigot”, etc. The Gay Left isn’t helping themselves by continuing doing sh*t like this… They need to take a page from Ellen Degeneres, instead. She did more to stop homophobia, than the hardcore activist types like Dan Savage, by being welcoming, apolitical, classy, and respectful to those that disagree with her.

  • agentm0m

    Everyone send a tweet of support to Barilla. Their boycott of Chick-Fil-A failed and so will this one. And Buy Barilla pasta!

  • Ramone Love

    Yawn. Mock outrage is so tiresome.

  • conservative2012

    I don’t care if people from the left or the right boycott. I personally don’t believe in them. You have to look at the big picture, who really is hurt by boycotts. Oh and good for Barilla for sticking up for their beliefs.

    I’ll be buying Barilla from now on.

  • Hiraghm

    It’s just too bad that some people refuse to pretend that their mental/emotional illness constitutes a 3rd sex and/or is perfectly healthy and normal. Unfortunately, you can’t refuse to do business with someone just because they have the mental/emotional illness of homosexuality. But you can if they recognize it as a mental/emotional illness. Twisted world.

  • Wag_a_Muffin (D)

    I have never boycotted companies who advertise using same sex couples (IKEA comes to mind.) But I am against gay-nazi tactics used by those who try to coerce Barilla to advertise in a certain way. Barilla is now my default pasta!

  • Captain America’s Wife

    ”not for lack of respect toward homosexuals, who have the right to do whatever they want without disturbing others,”

    This is interesting, because this statement is a statement of tolerance, which is what liberals & the homosexual community continually claim that they want. But their reaction betrays what it is that they ACTUALLY desire…and that is they want you to LIKE what they do. See, their definition of tolerance is different from normal humans. Tolerance to them is that you not only accept it, but that you LIKE it.

  • HealthyAmerican

    The stupid is strong with this one.

  • right_on

    I am buying Barilla from now on……………..I never bought it before. Screw the gay mafia!! We conservatives are working and running our businesses so we never have time to organize boycotts. However, I am boycotting Starbucks and now I will be buying Barilla.

    I am buying Barilla just because some witch can come along and trash someone for how they believe. I am really sick of the bullies trying to ruin people.

    so a boycott of barilla now.can’t wait for christine and the others to boycott the african american businesses and their churches in we watched on live tv when prop 8 passed. and as they picking out white churches to protest in front of in la, as we fine out about week later the percentage breakdown on the african american community in la voted in favour of prop 8 70% 2 30%..the african american vote is one the biggest reasons why it passed in’s easy to boycott people or companies like chick fil-a when it is politically correct. for christine and everyone eise it;s not to late to start the boycotts but you won’t because it’s not pc.don’t take my word for it just look up percentage breakdown 4 prop 8.can’t wait fot you and other to start protesting and boycotting for what you believe in.after all you like inclusiveness and holding people responsible for what they say or do if you don’t like it.time for you and the others to show your true colors..i’ll be waiting..but not holding my breath. .let the boycotts begin !!!! again not holding my breath

    I can’t believe how spoiled they are. Look at all the pasta they threw away? Do you really how many people that could feed?

    If I were gay, I’d probably avoid doing business with someone whom I knew disapproved of the things that I do.

    But to characterize this as “intolerance” is nonsense. Barilla is tolerant. He’s not advocating that anything be done to harm homosexuals. The whole point of “tolerance” is putting up with something you don’t like. It’s not “intolerance” not to celebrate something.

    What’s even worse is that people are taking a false quote that the NewYork Post put as the article title and running with it! It says ‘Gays Can Go Eat Someone Else’s Pasta’ – when the actual statement was: “For us the concept of the sacred family remains one of the basic values of the company,” he told Italian radio on Wednesday evening. “I would not do it but not out of a lack of respect for homosexuals who have the right to do what they want without bothering others … [but] I don’t see things like they do and I think the family that we speak to is a classic family. Well, if they like our pasta and our message they will eat it; if they don’t like it and they don’t like what we say they will … eat another.”

    So sick of media fallacies and twisting of words. I don’t even eat Barilla, but now I’ll go buy some just cause.

    As the mom of a gay daughter, who I love dearly and accept 100%, this agenda to force others into lockstep with the beliefs of the gay gestapo is getting out of hand. My strong libertarian streak has never fancied others telling me what to do! I, frankly, could care less what consenting adults do behind closed doors and, as a Christian, believe that God will sort us all out in the end. This man was asked a question that he answered honestly…the end. It’s his company and his business who he chooses to feature in his own advertisements!!!

    • Duane_of_Dibbley

      She’s famous for her brains. Really big brains.

  • Chimfish

    But the chairman said that he respects homosexuals and thinks that they “have the right to do whatever they want without disturbing others.” Isn’t this exactly what people on the left have been advocating for? Or is their plan to keep fighting anybody who does not COMPLETELY share their personal opinions about family?

    • Duane_of_Dibbley

      I think it’s the “disturbing others” qualifier that really has these people’s knickers in a swivet. If you find sodomy disturbing, then you’re a bigot. Thoughts like that are disturbing and must be eradicated.


    Another example of the “one way street” of tolerance. Think like me or else. Only pasta for me now. I love a good counter-boycot.

    So… Good-with-Three-Holes Chrissy Teigen is entitled to an opinion but Guido Barilla isn’t…???!!!

    She is a shining example of how far a woman’s vaj can take her.

    Vote down on the lower-left of this post. But you know it’s the truth and always will be!

    A quick Google Images search of “Chrissy Teigen” made me rethink of rather searching “Chrissy Teigan minus face”

    Oh yeah, its so ‘hateful’ for a company to choose to use only traditional families in its ads. Ciao, Chrissy!

    Who is Christine Tiegen that I would care what she thinks?

  • Lafango

    Accepting/promoting unnatural sexual orientations,
    accepting drug culture,…

    That’s progressive ideology?

    Manufacturing climate models/data – on a planet that exists for 4.5 Billion years – for purely political purpose

    is called Science?

    Chinese, Indians, Asian Tigers are churning out Doctors, Engineers, Scientists by the millions and the Nation that sent a man to the moon is heading towards caveman life styles!

    What liberals call a progress is actually a regression.

    My Google must not be working. It will not give results when asked who Christine Tiegan is. or @chrissyteigen .

  • Nermal146

    honestly, these people are really stupid. I’m replenishing my supply of Barilla pasta. I think I’ll give a donation so some of the people boycotting Barilla can buy a dictionary

    The Left really are the biggest internet bullies alive.
