Sponsors pull support from St. Patrick’s Parade



(WTNH) – More than a million people are expected to pack the streets of New York City today for the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. But it’s who won’t be there that’s drawing attention. Beer-maker Guinness announced it was dropping its sponsorship of the parade. Heineken said it’s pulling its support. Mayor Bill De Blasio will also be boycotting today’s parade.  GMCT’s Ali Reed and Teresa Dufour explain why.
