Howard Schultz to shareholder: Sell your shares if you don't agree with our marriage equality stance
Good for Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz for setting a shareholder straight about the so-called "boycott" of Starbucks over its pro-gay marriage stance.
The shareholder claimed that Starbucks' first-quarter performance was disappointing -- in part because "traditional marriage" proponents stopped buying their coffee at the SBUX.
"We want to embrace diversity,” Schultz said, advising the shareholder that "you can sell your shares" if he didn't like Starbucks' 38% return for investors. (Sure, that "boycott" is really hurting the company!)
