Josh Tetrick, CEO of vegan food producer Hampton Creek, is no fan of Donald Trump. On the eve of the Republican National Convention, Tetrick took out a $200,000 full-page advertisement in The New York Times lambasting the party’s presumptive presidential nominee. “Your campaign doesn’t just seem wrong. It feels un-American,” Tetrick’s letter stated. “To support it would make me less of myself, less of my grandpa’s grandson, less of my mom’s son.” His message to Trump is the latest in a series of “Dear” letters for which he purchased New York Times ad space in a one-man campaign to improve America’s food system. Tetrick has addressed other open letters to President Obama, the presidential candidates, and his mom, among others.
