Disney Corporation Censors State of Georgia Over Religious Freedom Bill

Because as we all know, the free market is censorship if it's used to promote inclusivity.

Following up on past acts of censorship such as DC Comics declining to publish a Batgirl cover and Frank Cho being arrested by armed government agents after posting 8 million "outrage" sketches on his blog, Marvel and the Walt Disney Corporation have expressed intentions to censor the State of Georgia if its governor signs a "religious freedom" bill. Religious freedom bills are laws that legalize discrimination against gay people under the guise of religious liberty, so, you know, totally legit. Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville, Ga is the home of Marvel Studios, but the company could pull out if the law goes into effect. Parent company Disney released the following statement:

Disney and Marvel are inclusive companies, and although we have had great experiences filming in Georgia, we will plan to take our business elsewhere should any legislation allowing discriminatory practices be signed into state law.


While this might seem like a simple example of free market capitalism in practice, in reality, we all know that, any time a person or company uses words such as "inclusive" or "problematic" while engaging in otherwise completely ordinary business operations, they are engaging in rampant censorship that will plunge the world into an Orwellian dystopia where straight white cis-men undergo forced castration before being forced Clockwork Orange style to watch films starring actors of a different race than the character they portray was originally represented as in its source material - the ultimate punishment. In fact, just by using the word "cis-men" in this article, we've moved the hands on the doomsday clock ahead by at least three minutes, for which we deeply apologize. By apologizing, we've moved the clock ahead by another minute. Truly, the situation is dire. AAIIIEEEE!

Georgia's legislature passed the bill on March 16th. The Human Rights Fund, a veritable terrorist organization, is asking other Hollywood companies to boycott shooting in Georgia if the bill passes.
