Trump backers vow to boycott pepsi over remarks ceo never made

← Homepage



DONALD Trump supporters are calling for a boycott of PepsiCo over fabricated comments circulating on the internet from the CEO.

Angry supporters have flooded Twitter alleging PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi told them, We dont want your business remarks that she never made.

But Ms Nooyi did make clear that her employees were upset about Mr Trumps win while at an appearance on Thursday at the New York Times DealBook conference.

I had to answer a lot of questions from my daughters, from our employees, Ms Nooyi said. They were all in mourning. All of our employees were all crying.

Acknowledging she was a Hillary Clinton supporter, Ms Nooyi said she needed a box of tissues the day after the election, but congratulated Mr Trump on his win.

We should mourn for those of us who supported the other side, but we have to come together, she said.

Supporters of the President-elect attacked her remarks on YouTube videos of the event.

Indra Nooyi just made a multi-million dollar mistake! I for one will be boycotting Pepsi products until she resigns, wrote one user in the videos comments section.

PepsiCo is one of a handful of companies under fire from Trump fans. Last week, GrubHubs CEO angered supporters after he sent an email to suggesting employees resign if they support the president-elects rhetoric.

Sorry everybody. We cant buy @Pepsi products anymore either, right-wing commentator Stefan Molyneux tweeted.

PepsiCo had no comment.
