And…there goes my formerly favorite pasta brand!

As Twitchy reported, model Chrissy Tiegen bid adieu to pasta maker Barilla over company chairman Guido Barilla’s stance on “traditional families.” Now actor BD Wong, best known for his roles as Dr. George Huang on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Father Ray Mukada on Oz, has joined in.
The pasta company has apologized:
At Barilla, we consider it our mission to treat our consumers and partners as our neighbors – with love and respect – and to deliver the very best products possible. We take this responsibility seriously and consider it a core part of who we are as a family-owned company. While we can’t undo recent remarks, we can apologize. To all of our friends, family, employees, and partners that we have hurt or offended, we are deeply sorry.
It will take more than that to mollify the anti-Barilla forces.
Exit question: How long will it take before some moron proposes a government ban on Barilla?
