Некий инвестор сказал Говарду Шульцу, по поводу бойкота, которому Старбакс подвергся из-за поддержки gay marriage:
In the first full quarter after this boycott was announced, our sales and our earnings, shall we say politely, were a bit disappointing

Инвестор, естественно, активист.

Шульц ответил:
Not every decision is an economic decision. Despite the fact that you recite statistics that are narrow in time, we did provide a 38% shareholder return over the last year. I don’t know how many things you invest in, but I would suspect not many things, companies, products, investments have returned 38% over the last 12 months. <...>
If you feel, respectfully, that you can get a higher return than the 38% you got last year, it’s a free country. You can sell your shares in Starbucks and buy shares in another company. Thank you very much.

Хорошо послал. Дальше начинается песня, вот как это расшерили всякие политические блоги на фейсбуке:
* Starbucks CEO: if you support traditional marriage, we don't want your business

* Starbucks CEO to shareholder: If you support biblical marriage, sell your shared
* Starbucks turns against customers and shareholders who support natural marriage

Шульц в проджектах вырос, его истериками со стороны акционеров-активистов так просто не прогнуть, я думаю
Особенно учитывая 38% рост за год
