Boycotting over King’s words

Thursday, April 6, 2017

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is calling on all grocery stores to stop selling Wells Blue Bunny products because of the Wells family’s ongoing support of Iowa Congressman Steve King. Wells Enterprises, Inc. President and CEO Michael Wells and family members have contributed nearly $11,000.00 in 2016 to Congressman King and over $34,500.00 to his campaign coffers over the past six years.

LULAC condemns Congressman King’s recent racists remarks saying, “civilizations can’t be restored with somebody else’s babies” and predictions of a “looming race war between blacks and Hispanics.”

LULAC is calling for all grocery stores to remove Wells Blue Bunny products from their shelves. LULAC is urging all Wells family members to stop making campaign contributions to Congressman Steve King.

We are going to boycott Wells Blue Bunny until the President Michael Wells and his family decide not to support Congressman Steve King and his hateful rhetoric.
