I never drink Rockstar energy drinks because of the “alleged” affiliate ship with the ass hole Michael Savage. The rightwing homophobic bigot. Not to mention it taste like shit. Well in April, Bilerico reported on the connections between Savage and the drink company, of which Savage’s own son is head. Apparently however someone way up in the Rockstar empire, is ashamed of Daddy Savage. They have started firing off lawsuits in all directions across the web, towards Facebook users and bloggers alike,
like a holocaust of free thought.
Possibly the most prominent lawsuit threat was towards the LGBT blog, The Bilerico Project. Rockstar may have gone to far and someone is standing up to the big bully. Rockstar is threatening to sue Bilerico because of the claim that the company is affiliated with Michael Savage. Here are the two sentence Rockstar is threatening the lawsuit over:
“It [Rockstar Energy Drink] was co-founded by conservative radio host Michael Savage.”
“Michael Savage is reaping profits from the selling of Rockstar Energy Drink.”
Rockstar claims that Savage only advised his son in the beginning and that Savage does not receive profits from the company.
My response is, even if and I doubt it, Michael Savage is not affiliated with Rockstar, his son, Russell Weiner, is still a homophobic prick. We should still boycott the damn company and I will never drink it’s products. At a concert, Weiner, called his father the leader and said:
"Who's heterosexual and proud? [...] If you're not, hopefully you will be soon!"
Weiner believes in most of his father beliefs and is a member in most of the same groups.
