THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — All of a sudden, the sweet taste of Jelly Belly jelly beans has turned offensive. Herman Rowland Sr, the head bean of the Jelly Belly company, has thrown money towards the repealing of California’s transgender student protection law.
This is a bit of stunning news when one considers that the candy business is highly competitive and profits are razor-thin. Indeed, the term ‘cut throat’ is most apt here.
Rowland may be regretting his decision already. Four transgender/LGBT organizations quickly joined forces to urge Rowland to reverse his decision.
A letter to Rowland, co-written by the National Center for Transgender Equality, Transgender Law Center, National Center for Lesbian Rights and Equality California, urged him to consider facts and not to be mislead by fear tactics used by anti-trans groups.
I’d suggest we call up the Jelly Belly company and urge Chairman of the Board Herman Rowland Sr., to do the right thing and publicly rescind his decision.
