Goya CEO’s Trump Gaffe Might Be Costing The Brand More Than He Bargained For

Update August 12, 2020

It seems that Robert Unanue, the CEO of Goya, caused some real damage to the food brand. Unanue celebrating President Trump brought a lot of attention to the brand and most of it has been negative, according to a study.

Goya is still dealing with the CEO’s gaffe celebrating Trump.

According to a study, the tone-deaf statement from the CEO has cost the company millions in negative press. Apex Marketing Group told NBC News that the CEO’s comments praising the president led to $10 million in positive press and $47 million in negative press.

The Spanish-American CEO has refused to back down from celebrating President Trump who has attacked the Latino community. The administration is notorious for locking migrant children in cages and trying to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Unanue’s praise of President Trump did not go unnoticed and a boycott ensued. Seems like the boycott has been serious because Unanue’s sisters had to save his job.

Original: Robert Unanue, the CEO of beloved Latino brand Goya Foods, is receiving relentless backlash after praising President Trump. #BoycottGoya is trending after Unanue’s comments praising President Trump for being the leader we are blessed to have.

Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue wants you to know that you’re “blessed’ to have President Donald Trump as our leader.

“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump who is a builder,” Unanue, a Spanish-American, said at the event. “That’s what my grandfather did. He came to this country to grow and prosper. And so we have an incredible builder and we pray. We pray for our leadership, our president, and we pray for our country. That we will continue to prosper and to grow.”

People are way more than shook by the baffling comments and his refusal to apologize.

Goya Foods is one of the most beloved brands by Latino households. President Trump has put migrant children from Latin America in caged in detention centers. President Trump started his campaign in 2015 calling Mexican immigrants rapists and murderers.

“So, you’re allowed to talk good or to praise one president, but you’re not allowed to aid in economic and educational prosperity? And you make a positive comment and all of a sudden, it is not acceptable,” Unanue told Fox News.

Social media was flooded by people who just don’t understand what the CEO of Goya was even thinking.

Julián Castro, a former candidate for president, was not shy to call out the CEO. President Trump has not been a friend to the Latino community when it comes to legislation and rhetoric.

People are offering recipes and alternatives to avoid having to use Goya products.

#GoyaAlternatives is filled with recipe after recipe and business after business to help you get over Goya. The boycott is getting a lot of attention on social media and people are getting excited to make their own adobo and sofrito.

Now, don’t go and just throw away your Goya products.

There are a lot of ways to make goo duse of the Goya you have at home. If you truly wish to never see the brand again, you can donate the food to food banks or anyone else who will take them. You can also simply choose to use the product until it is done and not buy anymore.

A Mexican Artist Is Making Pancake Art That’s Too Beautiful To Eat

Social media is where people can show off just about anything they create. This includes art in any and all media, like pancake art. Claudia, the creator behind Nappan Pancake art, is the latest artist watching their art reach the masses.

Claudia, the artist behind Nappan Pancake art, got her start because of the pandemic.

The artist first started to play around with pancake art last spring break when the pandemic forced businesses and schools to close. Claudia wanted to get more creative with her kids’ breakfasts since they were now always at home.

“I started experimenting with making Pancake art,” Claudia recalls to mitú. “At first I only used the color of the natural dough and a little cocoa. At first, I just used the ketchup dispensers and little by little I learned.”

Claudia uses her pancake art to honor some truly iconic people.

Cepillín recently died and the loss was felt throughout the community. He made our lives joyous and fun with his music, especially his birthday song. Some of the creations are done for fans who request to see their faves turned into delicious pancake art.

The artist loves creating the edible works of art.

The journey of becoming a pancake artist has been a fun adventure for Claudia and her children. The more she has practiced, the more she has been able to do.

“Sometimes I scream with excitement and I go to all the members of my house to see it,” Claudia says about her successes. “Other times it’s just a feeling like “disappointment could be better” other times it just breaks or burns and then I just cry but it usually feels very satisfying.”

You can check out all of her creations on TikTok.

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Texas’s current power crisis from a devastating storm has disrupted power generation and frozen natural gas pipelines. The is historic storm has driven electric demand higher than the state has ever seen, but it’s not just electric energy being overextended as a result. It’s physical and mental human energy as well.

Recently, an image of two exhausted Domino’s Pizza workers went viral for showing the extreme exhaustion workers are experiencing.

In a post shared to News4sanantonio.com’s Chime In page a user by the name of July DeLuna explained “This Dominos in San Antonio. Working during this crisis. They had a weekend worth of food and it was gone within 4 hours. This team helped those that needed help. These are the essential workers that need recognition. They were the only pizza place open. Every pizza place was closed but dominos stayed open to help those in need.”

Little else is known about the exhausted workers in the viral image but it did rack up over 8K comments within hours of being posted.

“Dominoes better pay them for the shifts they’ll miss while they don’t have any ingredients. With this practical free advertising it’s the least they could do. Otherwise these kind people worked themselves out of already bad hourly pay,” one user commented.

“,As someone who works in the food service industry, the thought of selling out of all product in only four hours and how much work goes in to preparing that much food is unfathomable levels of nightmare fuel,” another noted.

In another response to the image, a Reddit user wrote “I cannot express to you how upsetting it is to be the only food source open during hard times, to still be open and show up to do your job with higher than normal levels of orders, and still get yelled at by management for not having orders out within a window of time.”

Images of overworked and stressed is nothing new of course.

Fast-food workers are often burdened by their field’s daily challenges. In 2020, food industry workers are being forced to endure customer abuse at even higher rates. Last year a TikTok video of a Subway restaurant falling asleep while in the middle of making a sandwich went viral.

“This is actually really sad. I can’t imagine how underslept she is. Not to mention the wage people get paid at Subway… She deserves better,” one TikTok user by the name of Monique Emilia commented at the time. The skincare influencer Hyram also commented writing “Poor thing… Can’t imagine how underslept she is, we’re too hard on service workers.”
