I've been Googling... So I don't expect any marks... But since it's all gone quiet...

Fascinating story of Anita Bryant, who in fact had several claims to fame. She was a Miss Oklahoma and a runner-up Miss USA. She was the long-time voice of the Florida Orange Juice commercials. And in 1977 she organised a strident anti-homosexual campaign which resulted in Gay Rights legislation in Florida being repealed.

This led to a nationwide gay-led campaign to boycott Florida Orange Juice. Mrs B lost her job, her marriage broke up and she ended up bankrupt.

So there
