Head of Barilla pasta says ‘We won’t include gays in our ads’
“I would never make a spot with a homosexual family. Not out of a lack of respect but because I don’t see it like they do. (My idea of) family is a classic family where the woman has a fundamental role,” said Guido Barilla, president of Barilla Pasta.
Not only does he manage to insult gay families, but he gets a pretty good potshot in there at women too.
“We have a different concept with regard to the gay family. For us, the concept of the sacred family remains a fundamental value of the company”.
Don’t gay people eat pasta?
“That’s fine if they like our pasta and our communication, they can eat them. Otherwise they can eat another pasta. You can’t always please everyone”.
Time to buy a different brand of pasta.
“As a father of multiple children, I believe it’s very hard to raise kids in a same-sex couple”.
I hope they don’t get their family values from dad.
Welp, never buying Barilla again.
