PROOF FedEx, AT&T, Comcast, and 11 Other Companies KNEW They Were Backing Anti-LGBT Legislation In TN

Nissan, FedEx, AT&T, Comcast, DuPont, Pfizer, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Caterpillar, KPMG, Whirlpool, Embraer, Alcoa, and United HealthCare who keep bragging about their diversity and their HRC Corporate Equality Scores and who have also said that they were unaware of the fact that the “The Equal Access to Intrastate Commerce Act” which they all  backed  that Gov. Bill Haslam signed into law last night  would repeal gay/trans rights protections in Nashville and would ban municipalities in the state from passing any future civil rights laws are LYING.

Each of the companies were given official notice by the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce of their role in this hate legislation nearly one month ago.

So despite the recent whishy washy press releases that Nissan, FedEx, AT&T, Comcast, DuPont, Pfizer, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Caterpillar, KPMG, Whirlpool, Embraer, Alcoa, and United HealthCare have released only after being pushed and only after it was too late they knew damn well the hateful ramifications that this Bill would cause the LGBT citizens of the state of Tennessee.

The real question now is are we going to let them and the State of Tennessee get away with it?
