Maybe next time she will know when to shut her mouth.
CEO and president for Goya Foods, Bob Unanue, recently revealed that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was named “Employee of the Month” during July because of her tweet.
Unanue had said, “We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder.”
Ocasio-Cortez later tweeted out:
Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling “how to make your own Adobo” https://t.co/YOScAcyAnC
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 10, 2020
Her tweet ended up increasing the sales of Goya Food products by 1000% according to Unanue.
He said, “We still have to chat with AOC; I love her. She was actually our Employee of the Month; I don’t know if you know about this, but when she boycotted us, our sales actually increased 1,000%. So we gave her an honorary — we never were able to hand it to her but she got Employee of the Month for bringing attention to GOYA and our adobo. Actually our sales of adobo did very well after she said ‘Make your own Adobo.'”
Her plan backfired. Read the whole article here.
