I watch stuff on the free Tubi site (https://gdpr.tubi.tv), but it's only available in Canada and the USA, so I specify my location as Toronto in my VPN.

I have no use for Disney. If this gal found out via social media that she had been fired, that's just another mark against that squalid company. What they do on a lot of fronts is reprehensible. I've not watched the Mandolorian for more than the time it takes to cross the room when the wife is watching it. Not a criticism, just my take on most of what is broadcast (or on cable) these days.

That said, Rush makes some beautiful music. Their drummer gets a lot of cred, but I'm not all that enthused. Everyone's MMV.

I won't subscribe to Disney+ in the first place.

:secrets1: I wouldn't either, and I didn't...I'm just leeching off of my sister's subscription. :grin:

(She leeches off of my Netflix so it's all good  :P)

She had to find out via social media that they fired her. That is rally bad. Disney didn't have the guts to inform her directly. Some of her social media comments were indeed cringeworthy, but not malicious. I think you should not be fired for having conservative opinions, even if these are not loved by liberals (or in general). Anyway, Disney is now receiving a big backlash, because lots of people are cancelling their Disney+ subscriptions.

Hmm...I wasn't aware that they it was so indirect like that. That sucks.

I have two. One is a junkie, the other is not. I'm the normal one. :grin:

"Cancel culture?" I think you mean "capitalism." If you don't like people using their buying power to effect changes in what they are buying, then you don't like capitalism. This is one of the side effects of capitalism, smaller people's blood greases the wheels of the profit machine. I honestly can't see how any free market advocate can dislike this or similar results, it's what they're always advocating for, "vote with your dollars" and whatnot... except hypocritically of course.
Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I cancelled my subscription with Disney+ because of what happened to Gina Carano, Robin Williams, child entertainers that signed contracts with Disney, and other people. Another reason I cancelled my Disney+ subscription was because of Disney financially supporting sweatshops, global warming, and child trafficking. Considering Disney is headquartered in a country with child marriage legalized, I don't trust it regarding the protection of minors from old sickos that know how to groom minors. Especially in a country founded on slavery, genocide, and racism. I have native American ancestry. Natives from America had their lands raped, pillaged, diseased, and stolen by white settlers' army. The U.S. military is associated with that dark history of America as a result. Disney will never expose America's traumatizing military-industrial complex that bullies countries and causes sweatshops from bullied countries. The American military-industrial complex does not care about human rights, environmentalism, compassion, and justice. Anyone who says I'm lying are sellouts to ultra-wealthy and cut-throat elites. Disney caters to the majority opinion for profit only. Not for human rights, environmentalism, compassion, and justice. Which is why when I have children of my own, I will protect them from greedy sickos who own Disney. Because these greedy sickos who own Disney would not care about my children's well-being if they existed. So, I will do my best to stop financially supporting Disney to make that evil corporation go bankrupt. Here are online sources to prove my points:
