Looks like DC felt the pressure and took the first excuse they could find to put that homophobic shithole on the shelf.

I agree with what Frank Miller had to say on this story. His views shoudnt have anything to do with his ablitiy to write. hes good at his job keep him.

what about the rights of the business to hire and fire who they see fit and reject content as they wish?

are you saying we need affirmative action for bigots?

Businesses should keep that right. My point was more about DC backtracking from their original statement about how their writer’s personal views are personal and they hire writers based strictly on their writing ability.

i'm sure that's why he got hired. they can fire him for whatever reason they wish imo.

    • If nothing else that would mean more kicker jobs as guys like Lloyd would be in demand as a kick off specialist.
    • im generally ok with individual consumers boycotting but tbh im a little annoyed with companies boycotting. these businesses aren't benevolent and boycotting doesn't make their product more pure or their mode of production more ethical. i mean hey big deal ncaa, you moved your games. you're not taking much of a hit there but you get your positive press for your incredibly shitty business. like ok cool you hate the dumb law, i do too. maybe pay your employees before trying to stake out the moral high ground though??? meanwhile the nba moves it's all star game to louisiana where the largely black prison population still picks cotton on "former" slave plantations. hb2 is so mind numbingly stupid that it's easy to oppose without fear of having to sacrifice meaningful profits. im saving praise for companies that oppose oppressive institutions that aren't easy or profitable to oppose.
