  2. In 2012, it announced its support of gay marriage. The National Organization for Marriage immediately launched a boycott. Although the first quarter after the announcement sales weren’t exactly up to par, Starbucks didn’t back down. Unlike Walmart who’s adamant about their decision being a business one, Starbucks chief executive Howard Schultz said otherwise: “It is not an economic decision to me. The lens in which we are making that decision is through the lens of our people. We employ over 200,000 people in this company, and we want to embrace diversity. Of all kinds.” (Yourtango)
