Nothing stops a boycott quite like giving it more attention in the press, using the old "I am rubber, you are glue" gambit to accuse the boycotters of not tolerating intolerance, and reminding everyone of what a bigoted douchenozzle you are.
He sounds quite desperate. I've always felt that respect is something someone earns, and while I'm sure he's had respect in the past, he's said some stupid shit and gotten his bridges burnt.
