This week, the CEO of Goya Foods was asked about the months of social media scorn and how it affected his company. He answered that he is very thankful to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, that after the suggested boycott, his company’s sales surged and that he was naming AOC, “Employee of the month”. Talk about a backfire.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “No, I just googled how to make my own adobo. But of course Fox would rather indulge their made up fantasies than acknowledge that in the Trump admin’s catastrophic response to COVID, millions of people rushed to buy canned goods which then had to be rationed at grocery stores”
This is how she wriggles out of this – she did not ”actually” call for a boycott, so she technically did not ”lead” everyone in doing so.
We mean, C’mon now. You did not ”just” Google a recipe; you announced you were doing so on your social media account, and did so by responding directly to the comments made that day by the CEO, which you had included in your tweet.
The American people immediately reacted to this.
“Will you forgo your pay check in unity with your constituents that are out of work? Or nah?” one person tweeted.
Another person tweeted, “Congratulations on being named Goya employee of the month!”
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s plan about Goya really backfired on her. I am curious how she will come back from this though.
What are your thoughts on this?
