    Guido Barilla Puts His Apology on Video This Time

    I must be losing my mind, again. I could've swore I saw a thread about Barilla.
    Anyway he said he would not use gays in an ad and it pissed us all off all over the world. He said the gays can go eat someone else's pasta. He keeps apologizing but no one believes him. This time the apology is on video. He probably is sincere however he is probably just saving his ass too. Barilla pasta is my favorite and I gotta go eat someone else?

    Guido Barilla Puts His Apology on Video This Time
    The chairman of pasta-maker Barilla has released a video apology after gay people decided to take him up on a suggestion to "go eat another brand."
    BY Lucas Grindley
    September 27 2013 8:25 PM ET

    The apologies keep coming from Barilla and its CEO who triggered worldwide outrage when he suggested gay people buy someone else's pasta. But it's unclear whether any apology will be enough to stop the growing boycott.

    This is my sentiment whenever a corporate entity out there "sees the light" only after previous statements hurts their bottom line.

    Poor Guido.



    He doesn't like the negative publicity his pasta is getting.

    I sincerely don't understand, especially when there's so many examples of companies who did it beforehand, why they feel like they should say anything whatsoever.

    There are plenty of CHristian-based or Christian-owned companies out there who may hold similar views but have the acumen not to say it while in an interview or in front of a camera. What do they think they're going to reap when they do this?

    The firat corporate apology was the "I'm sorry if anyone's feelings are hurt" variety - this one is an abasement worth watching - their websites and Facebook pages have been flaming and the completion is having lots of fun at Barilla's expense.

    It's dumbfounding how anyone in his position got to where he is without taking a basic marketing course. He doesn't have to like gay people. But he should keep those opinions to his personal life. Don't publicly make dumb statements on behalf of your company saying that a particular demographic should buy a different brand.

    Agree with Spiff--and you have to be a total self-centered egomaniac asshole to make such a statement or be really stupid. In this guys case it's probably both.

    The weird thing about this particular episode of corporate homophobia is that Guido Barilla seems to have learned about the existence of gay people only yesterday.

    I get the impression that he is truly baffled by this.

    One would guess he will be looking for a new job sometime in the near term. Only the board could make a guy change his course so quickly.

    Still it doesnt matter to me. Domestic pasta is shite unless it is fresh pasta. I typically eat Luigi Vitelli anyways....

    Re: Guido Barilla Puts His Apology on Video This Time

    It is so tiresome to hear yet another bigoted corporate whore spewing right wing social issue garbage, then crying about how misunderstood they were after the fact. First off, anyone selling the slop in a jar that he does, that is a "buy one get one free" item in almost every grocery store, has no room to alienate even a fraction of his customers. I wouldn't buy his or any other sauce in a jar. I make my own that is infinitely healthier and better tasting than the sodium-laden shit he sells. Let him go the way of Chik-Fil-A and the rest of the right wing suck ups.

    Agreed. It's baffling.

    So you're hoping he increases his profits and opens more franchises (or whatever the equivalent, maybe more lines of product)

    Definitely. I don't think I've ever heard a corporate executive publicly say "I have a lot to learn" before.

    My take is that gay people were a sort of theoretical thing to him before, but we just became real.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    I was hear super mixed things, it sounds a little like they have some bipolar about sexuality there. Some people say it's way way open, other people say there's still the whole "Catholic, tradition" thing. But given their positions about rape I definitely default to assuming backwards rather than forwards on sexual issues for Italy.

    Sorry bigot,it's not going to change a thing.
    You won't go bankrupt but I know for a fact there are many people that will never touch your pasta because of your homophobic and sexist comments as well.

    He is welcome to eat his own pasta boiled up in douchewater...but I hope that he has trouble swallowing what he's bit off at this point.

    Wow.

    You guys remind me of a Foursquare Gospel church convention dinner discussion of homosexuals.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Before anything was said, who was thinking about the product regularly?

    This is attention whoring!

    You're right. Before this I've heard about this brand of pasta but have never bought it and never thought about it. All someone has to do is to slam gays, attention about the product grows, the gays boycott and the homophobes buy more. May not hurt the bottom line, just the image.

    Chick-fil-A was just another fast food place I wasn't familiar with until all the hoopla.

    Maybe any kind of attention, good or bad, is good for business nowadays.

    Only the rednecks don't even know this is happening - evidently he apologized so fast Fox didn't have time to canonize him.

    Oh yeah, and the rednecks don't eat a whole bunch of pasta that's not in their Beefaroni.
