1.5 million signature update
May 23, 2019 —
The petition has officially reached over 1.5 million signatures! Absolutely incredible.
If you have not read the “About the petition” update, please do so. It clarifies the petition in a way that has not been reported enough. I have still not been contacted by HBO or any affiliate. They probably want to protect subscription numbers to the best of their ability. As many of you are probably aware, various high-profile individuals have been casting down this petition as offensive and other choice words. I feel that they did not read my update or the news has been twisted so much that the wrong message was sent to some. I have received numerous hate-mail messages and other unpleasant comments regarding this whole thing, and while it has all weighed on me a bit I will NOT take the petition down and still await any response from HBO.
Secondly, donations are a topic that has come up often in messages to me and in the comments on the site. I have so far made exactly zero dollars from this ordeal, even from the few interviews I have done. All of the donations made here have gone toward Change.org so they can spread the message to the relevant circles on the internet. I’d say they have done a pretty decent job of that, given the petition’s popularity.
If you’d like a worthy cause to donate to, I’d recommend Queen Daenerys’ SameYou charity, or one of the casts’ other charities that can be found here (thank you to u/elle_ellaria of r/freefolk for setting up this fundraiser):

Thank you to everyone that signed and spread the word that we do not kneel. I refuse to take the petition down, despite the backlash and personal attacks. This has been a wild experience and I know our message has reverberated throughout Hollywood. Hope to update again soon with news from HBO.
