Props: Miley Cyrus calls out Urban Outfitters for funding bigot Republican candidate for President Rick Santorum.

First she does yoga. Now Miley Cyrus comes out publicly for equal rights. Guess I’m gonna hafta listen to a song by her for the first time, ever. I’ll pick her very-most-popular one on youtube:

  1. Okay, so maybe I won't give my nieces crap for being Hannah Montana fans…

    222 MILLION VIEWS ON THAT SONG!!!! WOW… That could make a person feel very small!!

    AMAZING. That alone is inspiring, regardless of content.

  3. […] guess this means that Chip Wilson of Lululemon, like John Mackey of Whole Foods, or wassisname of Urban Outfitters, likely votes as conservative as he can. What’s it with all these conservative-owned, […]

    Even though the "Citizens United" decision gave far more power to those with bigger purses, the people have always had the power of the market to express their disapproval. We can choose to buy or not buy at UO, WF, or Lululemon and tell the corporations why.

    You mean the money I spent on my hamburger-shaped telephone goes toward preventing basic human rights?

  6. Libby says:

    This is a good wake up call to do a little research on corporations that we may be thinking of supporting with our hard-earned money.

  7. Will says:

    It may be hard to believe, but in 29 states it’s still LEGAL to fire someone solely because they’re lesbian, gay, or bisexual; in 34 states it is legal to fire someone solely for being transgender. And there are 29 states that lack comprehensive protections for LGBT folds and 35 states that lack those protections based on gender identity – transgender. So yes, a small portion of the money you spent on a hamburger-shaped phone could end up supporting ballot measure's or candidates that believe this it's okay to deny basic human rights to LGBT people. And that's why I'm happy this story was shared.
