El Guardian: Apologize and Fire Journalist Publishing Rape Threat
Apr 1, 2011 — Hi everyone,
Thanks so much for supporting our petition to get Juan Terranova fired from El Guardian after he threatened rape to prove a point. We've found out that Terranova will be participating in a one-day online reality show tomorrow (April 2) with six other Hispanic literary figures.
His broadcast will be on this page:
Users will be able to make comments during the live broadcast (Terranova will be on from 2:45 - 4:30 PM or 1:45-3:30 EST) through the website as well as Facebook and Twitter. We want to send a message to Terranova that says that we will not tolerate rape threats!
Will you join us tomorrow between 2:45 - 4:30 PM (1:45-3:30EST) in tweeting at Terranova so our message gets across loud and clear? You can tweet him at @juanterranova or comment directly on the website by signing into Facebook. If you don't speak Spanish, you can use this message, "Las insinuaciones de violencia y violación no son graciosas, astutas ni invitan a la reflexión. Disculpas a la representante de Hollaback." which translates to: "Threats of violence and rape are not funny, clever or thought-provoking. Apologize to the representative of Hollaback."
Thanks for keeping this campaign running strong!
