Activists in Italy have called for a boycott of leading pasta brand Barilla after its chairman said he would not use gay people in adverts.
Guido Barilla, chairman of the company of the same name, told a radio interviewer the concept of the "classic" family was fundamental.
If gay people disliked the concept, he said, they could "eat another brand".
It's kind of boggling that in this day and age that someone would say that. I'm not surprised that he felt that or planned not to hire gay actors, but to outright say it and tell customers they could go elsewhere? Someone needs to be sent for PR training.
