We're all aware how Barilla pasta decided to throw a good portion of their customers away by saying that they'll NEVER use gay couples in their ads because they're all about the 'traditional family' and the 'woman's importance to their ads' (we're not sure why they can't show two gay women…)…
And, they also added that gays "shouldn't be allowed to adopt" and other things that make no sense, especially if you're a world-wide company who loves profits.
At the very LEAST, if you love profits, you should love everyone! Yet Barilla says that if you have a problem with it, you can just go buy a different brand.
Well, we've been seeing the fallout and it's MASSIVE, and we've heard their disingenuous apologies. Now we're hearing from other pasta companies — and the alternative options to Barilla are looking bright and delicious!
Read the inspiring and equal-loving message Ronzoni Pasta posted on their Facebook:
Not so fast, Justin! Selena has new Adidas NEO ads, too!
Hot on her ex-boyfriend's heels, Selena Gomez gets sensual in the latest crop of images, showcasing cute, athletic outfits in some type of loft setting.
A slashed, off-the-shoulder sweatshirt gives off Flashdance vibes, while a tight black mini paired with wedge sneakers is very sporty chic. Perfect outfits for lounging around or having a casual day out with friends!
And there's no brooding or sulking for this girl! She's more than happy to get her pose on!
Ch-ch-check out all the pics in the gallery (below)!

We wonder if they know how incredibly silly they look right now.
Yesterday, we told you about the chairman of Barilla pasta, Guido Barilla, making some homophobic comments on a radio station. He issued an apology for hurting people’s feelings, but not for what he said.
So, thankfully, the internet spread the word to boycott the insensitive pasta brand, and, now, Barilla is tweeting an apology with their tails, er, pasta shells, between their legs.
The chairman of Equality Italia, Aurelio Mancuso, made a statement, saying:
Poor lonely baby!
Adam Brody might've went solo to lunch at Carney's in El Lay, but he did have the company of his smart phone! LOLz!
The babelicious OC hunk stayed glued to his phone while he downed a scrumptious hot dog at the popular diner.
We wonder who he was texting…
From the grin on Adam's face, we're betting GF Leighton Meester was requesting HIS dog to go! HA!
He did swallow his grub suspiciously quick! HA!
Thank goodness for modern technology!!!

Oooh, nothing like being dissed on your own talk show!
While we're not too sure that's the point of having a talk show, Martha Stewart didn't seem to care as she sat down with Bethenny Frankel and unleashed on her!
It's been years since Bethenny just barely lost the winning spot on Martha's Apprentice show, but someone certainly isn't over it. And Bethenny took this chance to grill the home decor queen about only being second best.
And the answer is HIGHlarious. Martha gets totes awkwardly honest with Bethenny who clearly didn't see this coming! Even though Martha laughs through it, you can just see Bethenny cringing like she's never cringed before!
We just can't ruin this interview for you, so ch-ch-check it out…AFTER THE JUMP!!
We can't stop listening to them!!!!
