UPDATE: Goya CEO Not Speaking Tonight After All

Update to the post below:

Michael Estevez of Burson Cohn & Wolfe, a public relations firm representing Goya, subsequently told The Hill that Unanue would not be speaking at the RNC. The campaign did not respond to further questions about Unanue’s potential appearance during the program. Unanue was not named among the group of speakers issued by the campaign earlier Wednesday.

The Hill reports:

Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue will deliver remarks during the third evening of the Republican National Convention on Wednesday.

Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told reporters Wednesday that Unanue would be among those making an appearance during Wednesday’s program, which is themed “Land of Heroes.”

Unanue made headlines in July when complimentary remarks he made about President Trump at the White House prompted a boycott of Goya products.

The remarks inspired criticism from Hispanic leaders and calls for a boycott of Goya Foods on social media. Goya brands itself as the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States.
