Pressure applied unevenly = Pressure applied in the most convenient locations.The reality is that a smaller company that associates with unpopular people is going to be more effected by that decision than a large company that makes a similar decision.
Social pressure rarely gets applied evenly. That doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be done. When people where putting pressure on platform holders to de-platform Alex Jones, the pressure was not applied evenly, but it still started a snowball effect that eventually rolled up more companies.
LRG made a choice here and they don’t get shielded from the consequences just because the outcome isn’t 100% just.
You can justify your position all you want but what I see is a position that lets you do -something- without doing something that inconveniences you.
