The woke commies over at Coca-Cola can’t catch a break.
They’re getting heat from Americans after they decided to go all “political” and butt into US elections – they’ve faced tremendous backlash for that move.
But it was a Portuguese soccer star who just cost Coke $4 billion dollars when he pushed away two bottles of the sugary soft drink and told people to drink water instead.
Hahaha….good healthy advice!
USA Today reported that Cristiano Ronaldo’s gesture for people to drink water instead of Coke at a Euro 2020 press conference may have cost the soda company $4 billion in market value.
Coca-Cola shares dropped from $56.17 to $55.22 after Ronaldo moved two Coke bottles out of view and picked up a bottle of water before Portugal’s match against Hungary on Monday.
Market value for the company dropped from $242 billion to $238 billion – a $4 billion plunge.
“Agua!” the soccer superstar exclaimed. Agua means water in Portuguese.

Coca Cola fell ~1.6% soon afterwards, good for a today $4 billion drop in market cap

Obviously, Rolando’s gesture was not political – it was likely more “health-related.”
Either way, he’s right…Shove that woke poison out of your life.
