PepsiCo is facing a boycott of its products by supporters of Donald Trump, after rightwing political websites misinterpreted comments by its CEO, Indra Nooyi. A number of sites, including Truthfeed and The Conservative Treehouse, directly quoted Indra Nooyi as telling Mr Trump’s supporters to “take their business elsewhere” — a remark she did not make. In a past interview with NY Times Dealbook, Indra nooyi said that “all” her staff were “mourning” and “crying” following Mr Trump’s election victory, and she had felt it necessary to reassure some who were concerned about their safety.
