FREE SPEECH: SORRY HARRY'S, I CANCELED YOU!

As a freedom-loving constitutional conservative, I have the right to vote with my feet, money, and the right to flip the on-off switch like any other individual. Therefore, I have the right to push back against those idiots who believe it is necessary to do reputational damage to a commercial enterprise to virtue-signal your wokeness. If the company felt so strongly about the content on Michael Knowles’ show, they could have and should have just stopped advertising.

What Harry’s managed to do with their response to a Twitter user is alienate some portion of the conservative audience with their actions and bring even greater attention to Michael Knowles, his show, and his Daily Wire Platform. The boomerang effect in action.

In what world does it pay to publicly respond to a single tweet from someone with 15 followers and alienate a large number of loyal customers and prospects by withdrawing sponsorship of a popular show?

Normally, I would have let the matter slide because opinions are like assholes; everyone has one. And, a company is free to do what they will with their advertising dollars. But I received another pitch from Harry’s in the snail mail and considered the reputational damage their oh-so-woke virtue-signaling may have caused. Especially from someone who is perpetually outraged and who may be telling the world that even discussing a controversial subject is somehow vile because they say it is.

From Michael Knowles…

If the video is missing, it can be found here.

 

Bottom line…

Go woke, alienate a portion of your audience, go broke.
