Posted to Barilla USA's Facebook page:

Apology from Chairman Guido Barilla:

"Yesterday I apologized for offending many people around the world. Today I am repeating that apology.

"Through my entire life I have always respected every person I've met, including gays and their families, without any distinction. I've never discriminated against anyone.

"I've heard the countless reactions around the world to my words, which have depressed and saddened me. It is clear that I have a lot to learn about the lively debate concerning the evolution of the family.

"In the coming weeks, I pledge to meet representatives of the groups that best represent the evolution of the family, including those whose who have been offended by my words."
