While criticizing the boycott, “The View” co-host Meghan McCain warned that it might result in job loss during the difficult economic problems begot by the coronavirus pandemic.
“It seems weird & callous to boycott a company who supplies food to the masses and employs 4,000 people during a pandemic,” she said in a post retweeted by conservative author Ben Shapiro. “No matter what your politics, who wants more people out of work? Almost every CEO, boss, & person I interact with and consume products from disagrees with me.”
Conservative commentator Charlie Kirk also ripped the boycott, suggesting it would harm minorities.
“Imagine boycotting one of America’s largest minority-owned businesses and thinking that you’re doing something to end racism,” he tweeted on Friday. “That’s the current mindset of the leaders of the Democrat party.”
