Yeah, this show is no doubt going to be awful and has an awful premise, but since when were voat people on board with boycotting or putting censorship pressure on people's art and using the exact same rationale. If it's the news being misleading, sure. Boycott the heck out of it. But trying to shut down someone's art is some SJW-level horseshit.

Nothing at all wrong with boycotting.

This is capitalism, support what you deem to be important with your wallet.

If you don't like some thing; don't provide it financial support and it will die.

It's the same stuff SJW's try to do when they say a movie or game is sexualizing women and they try to exert social pressure to force companies into compliance. I'm all for not spending money on things you don't want. Totally fine. But trying to shame people into complying with your tastes by attempting to organize some sort of "movement" around it or whatever is horeshit. Obviously people are free to do whatever they want, but a lot of people here complain when it's the other way around and if you want to be consistent with your position on freedrom of expression, then it must include views you don't agree with. I'm not saying you're required to support it or anything like that. I'm speaking to the social shaming and activism that attempts to shut down free expression.

Since always. We are boycotting what we feel is pandering. We aren't rioting in the streets. We're cancelling accounts to a company that is promoting racist bullshit too degrade white people. Written by a man who says he hates whites. Created by a man who says blacks can't be racist. Why do you think we have to tolerate propaganda because "mahhh art."

I don't think you have to tolerate anything. But we, (at least people around here but maybe not you I dunno) have long decried companies who submit to social pressure on things like having a sexy lady in a comic book, and there would be groups attempting to boycott that stuff and "we" would rightfully say that they have a right to make whatever comics they want, and it's just art and it's not "for" them so why do they even care? Just don't buy them and buy something else. But the idea that no one should be making this kind of thing and no one should be looking at this kind of thing and campaigns centered around that are dumb. We're all grownups and can pick out our own entertainment.
