Smart move. In an increasingly divisive and uber sensitive society, from a marketing and branding POV, changing your name is a smart business decision. This allows you to avoid PR problems, potential losses in ad revenue, etc.... Sure, fans will be pissed however but give it time and the fans will adjust. I don't believe a life-long Cleveland fan will suddenly start rooting for the White Sox, Tigers or Royals. :twocents:

Wow I didn't even know exactly what "cancel culture" is until I looked up the definition yesterday and got this:
Cancel culture (or call-out culture) is a modern form of ostracism in which someone is thrust out of social or professional circles - either online on social media, in the real world, or both. Those who are subject to this ostracism are said to be "canceled."
I like it. That's what I've been saying needs to be done to anyone found to be a Trump supporter. They need to be ostracized. Social outcasts. Lose their jobs and professions. That sort of thing.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

But according to you, drunk driving is okay, sex with minors is cool, and private businesses deciding not to serve people based on their race is fine. But you draw the line at people who support Trump. I'm not sure you're the poster child for the SJW crowd. :coffee:

The phenomenon by which people support Trump is the same as that which led to Hitler and Mussolini gaining power during the 20th Century. It's very bad. We just had a guy try to subvert our system of representative government. And it's been obvious for years now that he is the type that would do something like that.

People who support Trump are way more dangerous to you and me than people who drive with a 0.08 BAC are. They are way more dangerous than a 21 year old guy who has sex with a 16 year old girl. They are way more dangerous than someone who refuses to associate with someone else based on race but otherwise minds their own business.

47% won’t be fired but ostracism is already occurring from families, friends, business relationships, jobs...It will take years to unravel.

Along with the ensuing restored faith in institutions and government, it’s a hallmark of crisis periods.
