As you’ve been hearing, the fallout over Arizona’s new stringent immigration law has sparked fiery debates around the country. Some groups have proposed a boycott of the state, but certain products are trying to make sure they don’t get caught up in the crossfire. Arizona Iced Tea for example, put out a statement on Wednesday reminding their customer that their tea is brewed in Brooklyn, not the Grand Canyon state. Comedian George Lopez briefly made the drink a trending topic on Twitter by joking that he "went to buy a AriZona Iced Tea - they asked me for my documentation. So I bought HORCHATA instead!" Actual Arizona firms that face a boycott: Cold Stone Creamery, Dial soap, PF Chang's, Fender guitars, U-Haul, Go Daddy, Sky Mall, US Airways and Best Western.
Meanwhile, pop star Shakira had joined a number of other Latin artists fighting against the recently signed immigration bill. She's traveling to Phoenix today to meet with Mayor Phil Gordon. Other artists involved in trying to block the law include former Rage Against the Machine front man, Zach de la Rocha, Eva Longoria Parker, George Lopez, and Ricky Martin.
