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.

"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.
