Top bean at Jelly Belly mars company’s image with anti-trans donation

Herman Rowland SrTHE 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.

  1. Not content with painting themselves into a corner politically, it looks like the GOP are not playing with matches in the house they’ve already dosed in gasoline.
    Astonishing, sick, but ultimately financial suicide. I hope he chokes on his damned beans

  2. had to pass the candy counter without getting my jelly belly fix. horrible since it is one of the few candies (other than chocolate) that i like!
    this boycott, chic-fil-a and buitoni…pretty soon i’ll be weaned from everything but my own garden’s fare~

  3. Looks like we have another Chick-Fill-A here. Good to know who the enemy is but those of us on the side of Justice & fairness for all kids are ready & confident we can stand against the opposition!

  4. NOT Biutoni; boycott Barilla!
