Stupid Person Learns Valuable Lesson As He “Mourns Roe v Wade”

As I visit my usual haunts, like Bored Panda,, and others, I constantly run across posts where people bash their companies/bosses/spouses/parents, but, they so often do not post the results. The fallout. Same in straight news where idiots write open letters, sign petitions. Well, here’s a result, and he’ll probably learn nothing

Employee fired after refusing to work over Roe v. Wade ruling: ‘I’m in mourning’

A Universal Music Group employee said he was fired from his job for refusing to work after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last month, and claimed the termination showed the company did not support its workers “speaking out” about abortion rights.

Michael Lopez, a now-former production coordinator at Universal Music Enterprises, attempted to shame the company in a LinkedIn post last week, saying he is a “queer brown person” who was “fired during Pride month for speaking up in defense of abortion rights.”

Hit the link: he sure looks white as rice. Also, if he’s queer, does that mean he doesn’t sleep with women? So, not problem getting someone pregnant

“Last Friday, like countless other folks, I was devastated by the news of the supreme court’s attack on abortion rights,” Lopez wrote. “Paired with the flood of anti-queer and anti-trans legislation, it’s been hard to process how company’s [sic] expect us to be productive while our rights are being stripped away.”

Lopez said that every Friday, one of his tasks was to “process reports for upcoming releases” and he would then have to email his work to a list of 275 people. However, after the court’s ruling, he decided not to complete the task and emailed his coworkers letting them know.

“I didn’t do them today,” Lopez wrote in the email of the neglected work. “I’m in mourning due to the attack on people with uteruses in the US. Federally guaranteed access to abortion is gone.”

“Vivendi and Universal Music Group must stop donating to anti-abortion, anti-queer and anti-trans politicians,” he wrote. “Politicians like Marsha Blackburn, Ken Buck, Victoria Spartz, etc. Or expect more unproductive days.”

“Yours in fury, Michael Lopez,” he signed off.

And, yes, he was fired in a video call the next Monday, so, he jumped on LinkedIn to say how many people supported him, and

“I was being let go for (paraphrasing) ‘Not doing your job, disrupting the day of 275 people and poor judgement,’” Lopez wrote.

If you’re writing this, you aren’t understanding what’s going on. Further, it’s not going to help as you apply for other jobs and prospective employers see this. They may support you stance, but, will be concerned that anything might set you off and cause you to not do the job they’re paying you to perform. He even continued, because, if you’re going to dig a job hole, do it right

“Just got fired for this email from Friday, so they’re letting you know where they stand on employees speaking out on politicians that support marginalization for folks like me,” he wrote in the email. “A brown queer person terminated during Pride month speaking in support of abortion rights. Seems like that’s exactly what America is all about right now.”

He concluded his LinkedIn post by saying he did not speak for his company, but for himself and employees who will “suffer under these discriminatory laws.”

Well, have fun with that job search.

    In America employers can let you go for any reason, or no reason, except:
    Sex (including pregnancy)
    Sexual orientation
    National origin
    Age (40 years or older)
    Disability or genetic information

    It’s rare for someone to risk their job for a principle.
