Every time I write one of these stories, I am astounded by how stupid these firms and organizations are for continuing to go “woke” and piss off the vast majority of their customers.
It’s as if they’re all bumbling idiots who can’t see that this never works for the hundreds of businesses that try it.

Just ask Coca-Cola how things are going since they became “woke” and intervened in the US election.
They’re still wringing their hands over that blunder.
There’s also the NBA, NFL, MLB, and Hollywood…
The list of foolish firms that take a political stance and then back down a few days later after all the response is overwhelming goes on and on.
This happens all the time, so you’d think they’d figure it out by now, right?
Because I’m here to tell you about another another foolish firm that has gone woke, and this one is a doozy, guys…
CMT, or “Country Music Television,” is now campaigning against nearly all of their fans by advocating for “gun control” of all things.
What the hell is going on here?
As you may imagine, this did not sit well with their fan base, and CMT is now facing what I like to refer to as “instant karma.”
There’s a lot of it.
CMT viewers are blasting the firm and threatening to boycott its forthcoming awards presentation, according to the Daily Wire, after it urged viewers to “dress orange” in support of a gun control campaign.
“Today is National Gun Violence Awareness Day, and we’re (virtually) wearing orange to draw attention to the more than 100 lives lost every day to gun violence. #WearOrange and visit wearorange.org for more information.

A poll of the first 100 direct responses on the channel’s page revealed that the vast majority of people were upset with the message. Only four people out of a hundred were encouraging (i.e., “Good for you!”). They only had one-shot guns when they wrote the second amendment. I don’t believe they ever dreamed that military weaponry could be bought! Background checks and a waiting period are all things that are urgently needed when it comes to guns. Those who oppose gun regulation are idiots!”), one who is undecided (“Data?”), and 95 who disagree.
That’s 95 out of 100 people who don’t like CMT’s “Wear Orange” campaign.
Fans attacked CMT for promoting the Wear Orange campaign, accusing it of omitting critical context on gun violence and threatening to boycott the CMT Music Awards, which will air on Wednesday and will be hosted this year by Kane Brown and Kelsea Ballerini.
