I'm far more likely to skip a film from a company that shuts down anyone's free speech rights than the beliefs of an individual star. For example, I abhor the politics of Kelsey Grammar but I still like to Boss on Starz because he puts in an amazing performance.
Republicans (and politicians of all stripes) need to get it into their heads that the bill of rights trumps their money making opportunities every single time.
