The sports blog Deadspin, which is owned by G/O Media, is falling to pieces after an internal memo from management told writers to “stick to sports” due to a massive fan backlash against political content.
The entitled social justice warrior staffers have staged a revolt, with many quitting their positions rather than performing the jobs they were hired to do.
The Gizmodo Media Group union, which is apart of the Writers Guild of America East that unionized Deadspin writers last year, issued a message of solidarity to all of the writers taking a stand against doing their jobs.
“’Stick to sports’ is and always has been a euphemism for don’t speak truth to power,” they wrote, calling out G/O Media CEO Jim Spanfeller in particular for the policy.
“In addition to being bad business, Spanfeller’s actions are morally reprehensible,” the union claimed.
