A conservative group, the National Legal and Policy Center, is calling for the resignation of PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi after her "inane and inflammatory statement" after Donald Trump was elected Nov. 8.

"Just as the American people are saying no to the political status quo, it is time to say no to the status quo of left-wing corporatism," Peter Flaherty's wrote on NLPC.org's website

The NLPC's call came in response to Nooyi saying at a conference

"I had to answer a lot of questions from my daughters, from our employees. They were all in mourning. Our employees were all crying. The question that they are asking, especially those who are not white: 'Are we safe?' Women are asking 'Are we safe?' LGBT people are asking 'Are we safe?'"

The NLPC called her comments "inappropriate for the CEO of a major corporation."

Nooyi, 61, grew up in India and became a U.S. citizen after Yale School of Management and the PepsiCo CEO in 2006.

"You would think that her personal story would result in unbounded affection for this country," the Peter Flaherty's wrote Wednesday. "The fact that a woman from south Asia could hit the shores of America as a young adult, and by her 51st birthday be heading a company known for one America’s most iconic brands, would seem to undercut her present notion of America as a dark, threatening place. Apparently not.

"It is tempting to call her as an ungrateful immigrant, which she clearly is, but the problem is a deeper one. The Fortune 500 companies are headed by executives, many of whom attended elite liberal universities and came of age during the late 60s and 70s. Many of them are not particularly sympathetic to free enterprise or traditional American values."

Flaherty added "she’s lived in the bubble of wealth occupied by corporate executives, far removed culturally from the rest of America."

"She knows that political correctness is an acceptable substitute for real leadership, and that as long as she says the right things and kowtows to the right interest groups, it is unlikely she will ever lose her job."
