Here’s Why Chrissy Teigen Is Boycotting Goya Foods, Along With Several Others

Published

on

Chrissy Teigen announced on Twitter that she’ll be steering clear of Goya products from now on. Her boycott of the popular food company came after its CEO, Robert Unanue, publicly praised President Donald Trump while visiting the White House on Thursday. Here’s why Chrissy Teigen is boycotting Goya Foods and inspiring others to do the same. Elite Daily reached out to Goya Foods for comment on Unanue’s statements and the ensuing boycott, but did not hear back at the time of publication.

Teigen joined many people across the country in boycotting Goya Foods after Unanue made an appearance at the White House on Thursday, July 9. The visit came after President Trump signed the Hispanic Prosperity Initiative, which, according to the White House press release, is an executive order to “improve Hispanic Americans’ access to educational and economic opportunities.”

During his address in the Rose Garden, Unanue praised Trump while speaking about his grandfather who founded Goya Foods. According to its website, Goya Foods is now the “largest, Hispanic-owned food company in the United States.”

“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump who is a builder, and that’s what my grandfather did,” Unanue said. “He came to this country to build, to grow, to prosper. And so we have an incredible builder, and we pray for our leadership, our president, and we pray for our country that we will continue to prosper and to grow.”

Unanue’s comments about being “blessed” to have a leader like Trump got plenty of criticism online, given the President’s policies on immigration. Many users declared on social media that they would no longer use Goya’s products, with the hashtags #Goyaway and #BoycottGoya trending on Twitter. Teigen shared her support of the boycott on Friday, July 10, tweeting, “F——-CK. A shame. Don’t care how good the beans taste though. Bye bye.”

After users commented about Goya potentially going out of business due to the boycott, Teigen followed up with more tweets, writing, “You think they’re going under? I see a new Karen every day spouting off in a Trader Joe’s who will gleefully buy the beans. Don’t worry about f-cking GOYA.” She also explained that she will do what she can to financially ensure the farms can carry on without Goya’s business.

Teigen wasn’t the only high-profile individual to take a stance against Goya Foods. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also shared her support for the boycott, tweeting, “Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling ‘how to make your own Adobo.'” Lin-Manuel Miranda echoed Ocasio-Cortez’s statement on Twitter, writing, “We learned to bake bread in this pandemic, we can learn to make our own adobo con pimienta. Bye.”

With these high-profile celebrities on board, it looks like the boycott is gaining plenty of traction around the world.

‘A.P. Bio’ Season 3 Trailer Gets Wilder, Weirder, and Wronger Over at Peacock

Published

on

A.P. Bio started out at NBC, but the third season of the hilarious high school comedy series is coming to Peacock next month. Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) stars in the series as disgraced Harvard philosophy professor-turned-high school A.P. biology teacher Jack Griffin. Throughout the series so far, he has been coming up with schemes on how to further his career and using his students to help him, all while avoiding any lessons about biology. But as this new trailer reveals, this year will be much harder.

A.P. Bio Season 3 Trailer

This season, Jack has to deal with the fact that the high school secretary Helen (Paula Pell) has chosen to go back to school to get her diploma, including enrolling in A.P. Bio. But that was covered in the teaser trailer for the new season, and this latest trailer instead focuses on the wild, weird and just plain wrong antics of Jack and his class without tapping into the continuing narrative arc that has unfolded so far in the first two seasons. That’s probably for the best since Peacock wants new viewers to seek out the show, potentially without having seen the first two seasons (though they’re available on Peacock to easily catch up).

The best part of this trailer is what seems like the loosening of restrictions on the show’s profanity. It appears one of the episodes might lean into their newfound freedom with the class asking if they can swear now. But when one of the students lets out a stream of obscenities, they’re still censored with beeps, so it may just be the editing of the trailer to make it seem like the show could get a little edgier with its language.

Patton Oswalt, Mary Sohn, Lyric Lewis, Jean Villepique, Paula Pell, Tom Bennett, and David Neher also star in A.P. Bio. But those are just the adult characters, and it’s the A.P. Bio students who are the secret MVPs of this series, including Aparna Brielle, Allisyn Ashley Arm, Jacob McCarthy, Miguel Chavez, Spence Moore, Jacob Houston, Eddie Leavey and Sari Arambulo.

The third season of A.P. Bio, executive produced by Mike O’Brien and Seth Meyers, arrives on Peacock this fall starting on September 3, 2020. Here’s the official series synopsis:

When disgraced Harvard philosophy scholar Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton) loses out on his dream job, he is forced to return to Toledo, Ohio, and work as a high school Advanced Placement biology teacher. As he comes crashing in to Whitlock High School, Jack makes it absolutely clear he will not be teaching any biology. Realizing he has a room full of honor roll students at his disposal, Jack decides instead to use the kids for his own benefit. Eager to prove that he is still king of the castle, Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt) struggles to control the force of nature that is Jack Griffin.

CS Soapbox: Will We Ever See A Live-Action Darth Maul Again?

CS Soapbox: Will We Ever See A Live-Action Darth Maul Again?

Ever since the Sith Lord played two-on-one with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn, Star Wars fans have wanted more Darth Maul. While he didn’t say much in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, his acrobatic style, unique appearance, and iconic double-bladed lightsaber have made him one of the franchise’s most memorable characters. George Lucas had likely no intention of bringing Maul back after fell in pieces down Naboo’s planet core; however, thanks to his popularity, Maul has endured well beyond his initial demise. 

 

Star Wars: The Clone Wars revealed (to the delight of fans) that Maul had survived his injuries from his duel with Obi-Wan. Focusing on his hatred for Obi-Wan, the former Sith Lord (voiced by Sam Witwer) was able to over his mental and physical limitations, ultimately regains his full strength. Lucasfilm’s animated series not only fleshed out Maul’s backstory, giving him much to say and do, but made him a pivotal character as he attempted to dominate the galaxy with the Shadow Collective while simultaneously seeking revenge against the man who dismantled him and the master who abandoned him.

Don’t get us wrong. Star Wars and Maul’s animated exploits have been great, but nothing compares to the franchise’s bread and butter: live-action. Aside from his live-action appearance in Episode I, Ray Park has only played Maul one other time, in Solo: A Star Wars Story. That film takes place roughly 8-10 years after the Clone Wars and follows a young Han Solo before Star Wars: A New Hope. Solo’s love interest in the film, Qi’ra is a lieutenant in Crimson Dawn—an emerging crime syndicate. At the end of the film, Park makes a brief cameo as Maul, who is revealed to be a figurehead of Crimson Dawn. 

Solo: A Star Wars Story set Park’s Maul up for future live-action appearances, having ordered Qi’ra to meet him on his home planet,of Dathomir so that they may work “more closely.” Unfortunately, the film’s lackluster performance has single-handedly reshaped Star Wars’ cinematic future. Instead of risking franchise fatigue, with multiple films retreading events with/around the Skywalker saga, the success of The Mandalorian has Disney/Lucasfilm focusing on the small screen, leaving the big-screen future uncertain (the High Republic?). Any planned sequel to Solo: Star Wars Story has since been scrapped.

The interesting thing about all this is that Solo: Star Wars Story, despite all its behind-the-scenes drama, still did well enough with critics and has since become an underground hit. We don’t hate it. At all. Fans want more. Rumors have recently been floating around that there might be a Disney+ spin-off series starring Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian. While these rumors have since been debunked, the hype surrounding them will affect Disney’s game plan moving forward. Their streaming service has many TV shows in the works (some announced, others yet-to-be). 

The events of the animation, Star Wars Rebels, elaborates on Maul’s time between Solo: A Star Wars Story and Episode IV. The character’s story ends following one last confrontation with his arch-enemy—Maul dies in the arms of Obi-Wan (aw). This doesn’t mean we won’t see him again. If the animations have proven anything, it’s that the intermingling of Obi-Wan and Maul’s stories is both an effective and reverenced aspect of the mythology. That said, Maul will almost certainly show up in upcoming Star Wars: The Bad Batch animation (Star Wars: The Clone Wars spin-off) but, more importantly, Disney+’s live-action Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

The Star Wars spin-off will see Ewan McGregor reprise his role of Obi-Wan 8 years after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. The series will presumably take place on Tatooine (the death place of Maul)—where “Ben Kenobi” watching over Luke Skywalker and his family. However, the production is reportedly looking to cast a young Leia Organa who resides on Alderaan with her father, Senator Bail Organa. Obi-Wan and Leia’s father were allies in the Clone Wars; therefore, the new casting reports imply that Obi-Wan will be spending time in places other than Tatooine throughout the show. Given Maul’s activity in the galaxy at this time (causing mayhem), it’s not a stretch to assume Obi-Wan will once again cross paths with Maul (especially if the former chooses to aid the rebellion). 

The possibilities for seeing a live-action Darth Maul again are endless. Disney can pretty much place him anywhere between the events of Episode III and IV (while adhering to canon). In addition to the Obi-Wan Kenobi series (and all the unconfirmed ones), a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story prequel series following Diego Luna’s Cassin Andor is also in the works. 

The studio loves playing around with the aforementioned period. A time frame where Maul is very much alive and relevant. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker concluded the Skywalker saga on the big screen, but that timeline is thriving on the small screen. Odds are we will see a live-action Darth Maul again on Disney+. Whether Ray Park will reprise his role—given recent controversies—or Sam Witwer takes over his live-action duties, remains to be seen.
