In this episode, a super-woke production coordinator in the music industry claims he was fired for “speaking up” about abortion rights after admitting he refused to work because he was in “mourning” over Roe. Hopefully, it was a “Don’t let the door hit you…” swift kick.
Ah, but something tells me it was about more than Roe. Read on.
Michael Lopez, a production coordinator at Universal Music Enterprises, posted a lengthy note on LinkedIn last week in which he blasted the company as “anti-gay” for terminating a “queer brown person” during Pride Month for “speaking up in defense of abortion rights,” as reported by the New York Post. Last Friday, like countless other folks, I was devastated by the news of the supreme court’s [sic] attack on abortion rights. Paired with the flood of anti-queer and anti-trans legislation, it’s been hard to process how company’s [sic] expect us to be productive while our rights are being stripped away. Lopez explained that every Friday, “One of my tasks was to process reports for upcoming releases,” and then to email the reports to 275 people. But instead of doing the usual process reports, noted the Post, he wrote an email that read: “I didn’t do them today.” I’m in mourning due to the attack on people with uteruses in the US. Federally guaranteed access to abortion is gone. Instead, it’s Lopez who is gone.
If you’re so inclined, here’s his post. If not, skip it and read on, below — we’ll hit the “high” points.

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
