(Natural News) In retaliation against Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue’s positive comments towards President Donald Trump at a recent speaking engagement in the White House Rose Garden, Twitter has decided to censor photos of Goya products, which it claims contain “sensitive content.”
According to reports, Twitter has censored at least two different images featuring Goya products, including Adobo all-purpose seasoning and cans of black beans. Now, when Twitter users try to look at the photos, they bear a semi-translucent overlay with a “fact check.”
In response to this blatant censorship for no good reason, a Twitter account by the name of “MRC Latino” tweeted questions asking, “Why is Twitter placing warning labels on a picture of a stack of adobo Goya? To whom is SEASONING ‘sensitive content?'”
These are valid questions that still have no answers as Twitter remains tight-lipped about the decision-making process that went into ridiculous display of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS).
Trump himself, in case you missed it, has threatened to shut down platforms like Twitter for engaging in this type of ridiculous behavior.
The controversy in question started when Unanue stated during his White House Rose Garden speech that President Trump is “a builder” just like his own grandfather. Unanue then asked all Americans, regardless of political party, to pray for the president.
There was nothing controversial about it, and yet leftists everywhere shrieked a collective screech of horror that a Hispanic man – and a CEO, no less – would dare to offer kind words to our Commander-in-Chief who, last we checked, represents all Americans.
Democratic Senator Luis V. Gutierrez of Illinois, for instance, tweeted a video of himself announcing that he would “no longer be buying” Goya products. Gutierrez claims that Unanue and Goya have betrayed “their once loyal Latino customers,” and is calling on all Hispanics to “Join me in taking a stand as a consumer and boycotting Goya. #Goyaway.”
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), a Democrat from New York, also tweeted her hatred towards Unanue for daring to do something other than lambaste President Trump with sentiments of “orange man bad.”
“The fact that Unanue would associate with Trump was sufficient to anger some of America’s most prominent Hispanic leaders,” AOC tweeted, followed by a mocking statement of sarcasm that read, “Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling ‘how to make your own Adobo.'”
In 2017, Goya led the way in pulling support for a Puerto Rican parade in New York that glorified a Hispanic terrorist
Amazingly, this is not the first time that Goya has taken a prominent stand for or against something that by doing so outraged the leftist contingents of America. Back in 2017, the company withdrew its sponsorship for the New York City Puerto Rican Day Parade because its organizers decided to honor a FALN terrorist by the name of Oscar López-Rivera, calling him a “National Liberation Hero.”
Goya immediately pulled its support from the event, which prompted other large companies such as JetBlue, AT&T, Corona beer, the New York Yankees, Coca-Cola, and even Univision to all do the same.
Hilariously, AOC responded to her own tweet about the Adobo recipe with an actual Adobo recipe that she claims she got from a “friend.”
“Get yourself friends like these: this tweet wasn’t up for TWO MINUTES when my friend hit me up with the recipe. (Their note: ‘the ginger is controversial, but worth it’),” she wrote, obviously quite proud of herself.
“(For accessibility: 4 Salt, 1 paprika, 1 cumin, 1 celery powder, 2 garlic powder, .5 ginger, 1 chili powder).”
Immediately after she posted this, another Twitter user responded by asking:
“Did you donate 300,000 pounds of food to organizations, food banks, and soup kitchens in NY and other places to help with COVID-19? Goya did.”
