Ivanka Trump posed with a tin of Goya beans and the takedowns were brutal
For reasons which will slowly become clear, Ivanka Trump has been on Twitter, posing with a picture of Goya beans with the brand’s slogan, ‘If it’s Goya, it has to be good’ in English and Spanish.
If it’s Goya, it has to be good.

She was presumably trying to help out after Goya’s chief executive made the mistake of praising Donald Trump, prompting a boycott Goya campaign.
But we’re not sure she’s helped. In fact, given the response on Twitter and elsewhere today, she might have been and gone and made it worse. A lot, lot worse

I'm so fucking sick of these people and their tireless, shameless dedication to every cheesy grievance. I hate that they're running the country, and embarrassed at how appropriate it is that they are at this moment in time. Sorry I forgot to do a joke! https://t.co/nmveZykus0

But the best, the very best, was surely this.
