For sure. I get it. But like I said, I tend to think companies overreact to these situations.

You do represent a company you work for, but people are also smart enough to differentiate between a person and a company.

But nowadays, companies are expect to be far more socially and politically active than they have in the past, and this is the type of thing that gives them a way to show what they, as a company, deem acceptable or not.

Disney is making that stand, and good for them for proving to their stakeholders what their values are. But they knew who Gunn was when they hired him, and these tweets were public back then too. So I find it a little disingenuous.
