"The answer, obviously, involves Chrissy Teigen. After the CEO of Goya Foods, Robert Unanue, praised the president, saying, “we are truly blessed ... to have a leader like President Trump,” a number of bean buyers and celebrities (and celebrity bean-buyers) began calling for a boycott (a Goycott, if you will) of the Hispanic-owned brand as a simple exercise of their rights as consumers not to give their money to a man who supports our racist president."


“FUUUUUU-K. A shame. Don’t care how good the beans taste though. Bye bye,” Teigen tweeted, as Teigen is wont to tweet. Thanks to Teigen’s and others’ support, the brand began trending on Twitter. And that’s when the president’s daughter decided to get involved. "


"It’s unclear whether Ivanka’s attempt to brainwash her followers into becoming Goya loyalists is satire in response to public backlash against Unanue, or good ol’, earnest Instagram shilling, but what is clear is that, as a government official, she shouldn’t be advertising anything at all.
