Conservatives rally around Goya amid calls for boycott over CEO's pro-Trump remarks

I grew up eating Goya all my life and my wife, who is African American do so too. 
This is a beloved brand among many ethnicities, especially in New York.  Nobody is paying attention to AOC! 
Fox News reports a number of prominent conservatives have offered their support for Goya Foods as it faces mass calls for boycott over its CEO's decision to praise President Trump.
On Friday, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted: "Goya is a staple of Cuban food. 
My grandparents ate Goya black beans twice a day for nearly 90 years. And now the Left is trying to cancel Hispanic culture and silence free speech. #BuyGoya"
President Trump similarly tweeted "I LOVE @GoyaFoods!" amid the backlash. Figures such as former model Chrissie Teigen had advanced the boycott as a way to retaliate against CEO Robert Unanue, who appeared beside Trump at a White House event this week.
