It would seem that Bob Newhart has changed his schedule and will not be headlining the summit of the anti-LGBTQ Legatus Group.
I'd love to see some confirmation elsewhere than his Twitter feed, but if it's true, I'm very excited!!
@BobNewhart: Upcoming Bob Newhart Tour Date Change -- Bob will not be performing at the Legatus Summit in Orlando FL on February 6th, 2014
Beyond being just a a degree or two of Hollywood separation from him, I have no idea whether this petition reached him or not, but I hope he was able to see how much his LGBTQ (and allies) fans care about him. I will keep this feed up to date as more news emerges.
