Entertainment companies previously threatened to pull business from Georgia in 2016 to defeat a religious freedom law that opponents said sanctioned discrimination against LGBT residents in Georgia.
VH1, owned by Viacom Inc., said at the time it would relocate shooting on the show “Satan’s Sisters.”
Yeah, take your Satan’s sisters and get out.

The Motion Picture Association of America has noted that similar legislation has been challenged in other states. That’s why it’s maintained a wait-and-see approach.
“The outcome in Georgia will also be determined through the legal process,” the organization said. “We will continue to monitor developments.”
What has the Motion Picture Association of America to do with abortion? Isn’t its business making motion pictures? Why are they taking sides in this bitter, miserable, interminable battle?
Let Hollywood, New York, and Washington be strictly separated. Entertain the public, MPAA, and leave finance and politics to the other elites.
