Satirical news outlet The Babylon Bee reported that its internal email service was recently canceled without explanation. Babylon Bee’s CEO said he believes that its comedic political messages rubbed its service provider the wrong way. The Babylon Bee is a victim of woke corporate cancel culture. The Babylon Bee does not shy away from making fun of President Joe Biden, his administration, and the Left.
Here’s what happened according to Seth Dillon, CEO of the Babylon Bee, in a September 25, 2022 email:
“A few weeks ago, we received an unexpected email from Front, the company that manages all inbound and outbound email for the team here at the Babylon Bee, informing us that they had terminated our account, effective immediately.
Sure enough, moments later, we were unable to send or receive email.
For weeks afterwards, our team scrambled. We’re a company spread across multiple cities, so email is essential to our operation…
But why would they do such a thing?
By now, I’m sure you have a good guess.
It probably comes as no surprise that Front is run by a group of woke, left-wing tech elitists. Just like Twitter, Facebook, The New York Times, Snopes, and the many other companies that have attacked us, they simply can’t abide by satire that dares to mock their left-wing orthodoxy.
So they orchestrated their attack to do the most damage they possibly could.”
The Babylon Bee may be joking about President Biden and his people, but it’s not a joke that corporate providers, which are paid for their services, would work so hard to undermine anyone who presents viewpoints they disagree with.
