Stop Age Discrimination - CA Laws Says IMDB Is Required to Remove Age Information

Did you know that a California law was passed requiring IMDb to remove age information from their website upon request?

U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria overturned this law and said the law violated the First Amendment rights of IMDb, a unit of Amazon.com Inc.  

While actors in Hollywood have long complained they are passed over for roles as they age, Judge Chhabria said the California law's advocates "seem to misunderstand" that the real problem might be gender discrimination.  Judge Chhabria is ignoring the fact that just as many men face age discrimination in Hollywood.  

In February, Judge Chhabria issued a preliminary injunction against enforcement of the California law.

SAG-AFTRA President, Gabrielle Carteris, wrote in 2016 that she would never have won an audition for her role as 16-year-old Andrea Zuckerman in the 1990s hit TV show "Beverly Hills, 90210" had producers known she was 29 at the time.

Tell Judge Chhabria that he needs to uphold the California law that deemed IMDb’s practice to be age discrimination which costs many actors jobs. 

Tell Judge Chhabria you want him to uphold the California law requiring IMBd to remove age information from their website and that he should not support age discrimination practices.
