true, but the shareholders can eventually sue. They'll learn the hard way.

Currently corporate law doesn't support the claim that the executive at a corporation can prioritize social justice above profits.

They can, but proving breach of fiduciary duty is really hard to do unless there's a leak from within the company or some other evidence that they know they will lose money (in both the short and long term). Simply fucking up is not a breach of fiduciary duty, and that's an excuse they can fall back on.

I would say telling people to not buy your game in official announcements probably constitutes evidence of trying to lose money.
