As if the Calgary Comics Expo did not have enough to deal with following their ejection of the Honey Badger Brigade, this happened:
That is real. That is what Calgary Expo tweeted several hours ago. This the same group that kicked out the Honey Badgers because they participated in a civil discussion with feminists and had the Gamergate logo on their banner. This is what the group that wanted to create an environment of equality tweeted on their own accord.
I understand they are Canadian and may not have the same level of race issues as we have in the United States. However, I am sure that one could take this picture to the middle of India and they would find it racist.
Of course, the tweet has since been deleted. I do not know who tweets for the group. One would think they would have the business and social savvy to know that was not the best picture to tweet or inappropriately caption. One would think the negative press they have received would have kept them on their best behavior. One would be wrong because the tweet sat around for hours before anyone realized how terrible it made them look.
For all those who support the Calgary Expo, that is what you are supporting. And you wonder why people have such a terrible opinion of so-called “social justice warriors.”
