Greg Mantell started this petition to U.S. Senate and

I'm proposing a 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution supporting extending free speech in America--to social media platforms and employees outside of work. This would prevent social media companies from censoring viewpoints they don't like and prevent companies from firing workers for expressing opinions outside of work that they don't agree with. It would extend current First Amendment protections to these news areas. It would help cancel "cancel culture." Below is a rough draft starting point for such an amendment. Undoubtedly it would require revision.

Whereas Freedom of Speech is fundamental to a democracy,

Notwithstanding any other provision of this constitution, 

1. No business operating a forum that seeks comment or participation from an individual or the public other than its own employees, shall in any way restrict, moderate, censor, delete, or ban any comment or content of any kind or person from such forum, unless such speech or content could be regulated by the federal government under the First Amendment. This section applies to any forum operated by a business using current technology or anything to be devised in the future.

2. No business shall in any way suspend, fire, reprimand, demote, or in any way retaliate against an employee for any comment made publicly or privately by an employee outside of work that does not directly pertain to the employee’s immediate job functions, even if the employer disagrees with or disapproves of such statement.
