Jimmy Kimmel Boycott Reaches Nearly 30,000 Signers

The online petition has nearly 30,000 signatures.

Published

An online pledge to boycott the Jimmy Kimmel show in response to his attacks on First Lady Melania Trump has reached nearly 30,000 petition signers. The petition can be found by clicking this link.

The segment that led towards the boycott shows Kimmel insulting Melania Trump, attempting to claim that she had nothing  to do with the “Easter Egg Roll” that she organized in front of the White House. While First Ladies have historically organized the event since the 1800’s, he felt that Melania was too busy building an “escape tunnel.”

Kimmel also mocked Melania’s accent, laughing hysterically as she was reading a children’s book. He did this while neglecting to mention that while English is not her first language, she is fluent in five different languages.

eBay BANS Six Dr. Seuss Books That Will No Longer Be Published Due to “Racist Images”

This is getting completely out of hand.

Published

The hysteria continues: eBay has banned the reselling of six Dr. Seuss books that will no longer be published due to “racist imagery,” saying that these listings now violate their policies.

eBay had emailed people who put the books up for sale early Thursday morning. With a subject line titled “Your listing was removed: Offensive material policy,” eBay’s email reads as follows:

We had to remove your listing because it didn’t follow our Offensive material policy. Listings that promote or glorify hatred, violence, or discrimination aren’t allowed.

Dr. Seuss Enterprises has stopped publication of this book due to its negative portrayal of some ethnicities. As a courtesy, we have ended your item and refunded your selling fees, and as long as you do not relist the item, there will be no negative impact to your account. Please review our Offensive Materials Policy prohibits this item for more information [sic].

The six books that Dr. Seuss Enterprises said they would no longer publish include And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, If I Ran the Zoo, McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer.

Big League Politics reported Tuesday that a school district in northern Virginia stopped celebrating Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day because of the “racial undertones” of such books. Although the district said they would not ban Dr. Seuss books from their libraries and classrooms, there’s no doubt they’ll consider removing the six books now considered irredeemably racist.

eBay is probably the first domino to fall. Expect Amazon and others to follow suit.
