Thanks for all of the support thus far! Though I can genuinely say that there are some aggressive TP & Oprah fans (having received a few hate emails, & trolling type Facebook posts and tweets,) I can say that for the most part there has been much productive dialogue about this petition. I never imagined how many blogs and news sources would have an interest in this petition- even if they are hating, folks are talking! It one person takes the time to re-calibrate their thinking, I'm satisfied. But I would like OWN to reconsider this Perry foolishness.
I encourage all of you who have chosen to promote the petition to emphasize this: we are exercising our freedom & working for change! This is about asking OWN and Oprah to remain consistent with their brand. We may not like the Perry brand, but he certainly can exercise his free speech.
Next steps? What are your thoughts about it? If you are interested in a having an active role or just lurk, let me know!
