Some Prop 8 Backlash


I received this (see below) today via Facebook.I heard about some of the backlash supporters of prop 8 have been receiving in the theatre world, but it looks like this is spreading to those in the film world as well.

Don’t let Cinemark profit from Harvey Milk’s legacy!

This group is specific to the promotion of Gus Van Sant’s incredible film “Milk” and raising visibility around Cinemark CEO Alan Stock’s $9,999 donation to Yes on 8. If 1,000 of us commit to see “Milk” at a competitor’s theater instead of Cinemark, at an average cost of $10 per ticket, that’s $10,000 of lost revenue.

Help us reach 1,000 members so we can send a message to Mr. Stock:
You will not profit from hate!

UPDATE: WE DID IT! 1000 Members in three days and still going strong. Thank you all! We’re stepping it up and aiming for 10,000 members (a $100,000 impact). This is aggressive but I think it’s possible. Keep it going. – Justin
