Well becoming “woke” indeed made them “broke.”And maybe this time WOKE Corporate America might finally be getting the message.
We never failed to warn these corporate elites and sports teams before, however; they neglected those warnings and what happened now is big karma!
Consumers and fans have been calling them out for years now. But still, these narcissistic companies and selfish “activist athletes” just keep pushing their progressive agenda down everyone’s gullets.
They really thought that if they keep on fighting for we’ll give in and support them too. But unfortunately, this is not the case now.
Most of the athletes who made it into the Olympics this year were those “anti-American/pro-BLM.” This made Americans to tuned out and choose not to watch Olympics.
But how bad was it?
Well, bad enough that NBC had to start airing advertisers’ commercials for FREE.
According to the Western Journal report:
If you go woke, you will indeed go broke.
In this case, NBC was the middleman in an Olympics where many of the athletes were less than thrilled to be representing the United States.
On July 26, for example, only 14.7 million people were watching primetime coverage — a 49 percent drop from the 2016 Olympics and a 53 percent decline from the 2012 Olympics, Fox News reported.
These ratings are so poor that the network began re-airing commercials for advertisers at no additional charge.
The Monmouth University Polling Institute released a poll showing that 43 percent of Americans did not have much interest in watching the games whatsoever.
Patrick Murray of the polling institute told Fox News that the reason might have been the politicization of the games by some athletes.
“The Olympic spirit is a bit dampened this year,” he said.
Gee, ya think?
But it’s not just the Olympics. These same types of spoiled, entitled, clueless progressive “activist athletes” have ruined all sports.
Just look at the ratings for the NBA and NFL.
American no longer wants to get involved with politics and sick of social justice, and these athletes no longer listen to us, well they don’t deserve our views and supports.
