Universal Music Group Fires "Brown and Gay" Employee Who Refused to Work-- Because He Was "In Mourning" Over Roe v. Wade

And his playing of the "brown and gay" card didn't save him, surprisingly.

Are people just finally fed up with this?

A woke Universal Music Group worker claims he was fired for "speaking up" about abortion rights -- after he admitted he refused to work because he was in "mourning" over the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Michael Lopez, a production coordinator at Universal Music Enterprises, blasted the company as "anti-gay" for terminating a "queer brown person" during Pride Month for "speaking up in defense of abortion rights," according to a lengthy note on LinkedIn that went viral last week.

"Last Friday, like countless other folks, I was devastated by the news of the supreme court's [sic] attack on abortion rights," Lopez wrote.

"Paired with the flood of anti-queer and anti-trans legislation, it's been hard to process how company's [sic] expect us to be productive while our rights are being stripped away."

Lopez then went on to explain that each Friday "one of my tasks was to process reports for upcoming releases" and then to email his work to 275 people.

But instead of doing the usual process reports, he wrote an email that read: "I didn't do them today."

"I'm in mourning due to the attack on people with uteruses in the US. Federally guaranteed access to abortion is gone," the email continued.


"Vivendi and Universal Music Group must stop donating to anti-abortion, anti-queer and anti-trans politicians. Politicians like Marsha Blackburn, Ken Buck, Victoria Spartz, etc. Or expect more unproductive days," he wrote, signing off with "Yours in fury, Michael Lopez."

Amazon employees banded together to demand time off to "grieve" the Dobbs decision.



Amazon employees upset over the recent decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade asked the company for "space and time" to "grieve" and "protest against this assault on our rights," according to a leaked letter.

The petition was reportedly signed by hundreds of employees at the Seattle-based retail giant, according to Insider. A copy of the petition was posted online by the Twitter account "Libs of TikTok."

The letter also demands that Amazon "cease operations in states that enact laws that threaten the lives and liberty of abortion seekers, either by denying healthcare in life threatening circumstances or by criminalizing abortion seekers and providers."

Amazon's human resources chief Beth Galetti on Friday implored workers to "be respectful of everyone's perspectives" after arguments over abortion broke out on the company's Slack platform. The fights reportedly erupted in the #christians channel, according to Insider.

I never saw an update to this story. I don't think Amazon granted the time off, but I'm not sure.

Dungeons & Dragons fans, it might be time to abandon the official game and just go OSR (rules based on the original ruleset): the woke idiots that make D&D, and who have been injecting trans characters all over the place and offering characters' pronouns in a game set in a quasi-medieval era, are demanding that their parent company, Hasbro, do more to protest the Dobbs ruling.

Note that Hasbro is mostly a company that makes family-friendly games like Hungry Hungry Hippos.

But D&D game designers feel they need an official policy in favor of abortion.

Employees at Wizards of the Coast, famed for publishing tabletop games like Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering, have staged a walkout in response to its parent company's "lackluster" answer to the dismantling of Roe v Wade.

In a statement published to a brand new Twitter account, Wizards for Justice, employees lambasted its parent company, Hasbro, for a poor response to the ramifications of the Supreme Court ruling. Apparently, the company sent out an email to staff which prompted the response. "We, as employees of Wizards of the Coast, are frustrated, disappointed, and completely dissatisfied with Hasbro's out of touch, tone-deaf, and lackluster response to Friday's Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade," it said. "This decision, that healthcare for marginalized individuals is a privilege based on location and means, violates basic human rights."

As a result of what employees feel is a mishandling of the situation, Wizards for Justice announced its encouragement for employees to walk out in protest and take a day to "reflect" on the situation. "On Wednesday, June 29th all employees are encouraged to take a day to reflect, nurture mental health, and show solidarity that Hasbro will not," it said. "Decisions like this cause suffering and it's this that we ask, on the same day, Hasbro leadership to reflect on. Particularly, how messaging like this violates and stands in the face of a diverse and inclusive workforce and creates yet another burden for already marginalized people."

Disgusting.

Not another dime.
