Chrissy Teigen is being criticized on social media for posting a cooking tutorial featuring Goya beans, weeks after encouraging her followers to boycott the brand.
Goya CEO Robert Unanue spoke at a Rose Garden event last month to announce the “Hispanic Property Initiative.” During his speech, which has since gone viral, he said Americans are "truly blessed" to have a "leader like President Trump."
Shortly after the speech, many celebrities including Teigen, 34, announced that they would no longer support the brand due to its CEO's support of the president.
