Pasta maker Barilla fending off calls for boycott
There are new calls for a boycott of Barilla pasta after what some are calling a non-apology over anti-gay statements from the company's chairman.
On Wednesday, Guido Barilla said his company would never feature ads depicting gay families. He also said if gay customers don't like it they can, "eat someone else's pasta."
Thursday, Barilla said he supports gay marriage, but continued to insist that traditional families identify with the Barilla brand.
