Starbucks CEO's reply to angry anti-gay shareholder: "You can sell your shares"

After Starbucks announced support of marriage equality, anti-gay bigots went bonkers, including launching a failed boycott that actually resulted in an increased shareholder return for the company.

Last week at a shareholder meeting, an anti-gay activist disappointed with the company's pro-gay stance publicly threatened CEO Howard Schultz with another boycott.

Schultz's response?

"You can sell your shares of Starbucks and buy shares in another company. Thank you very much."

Gotta love that free market. Right, #tcot?
