So apparently Marvel's CEO is a Trump supporter, and im really really conflicted about this, and i dont even live in the USA, but lets say that i see some parallels to my countries past, and am really pissed off about it.
But how can i react to this and do i have to react to this? a lot of people on twitter are already calling for boycotts, which if we really think about it, propably wont do anything but hurt the people in the company that we like, awesome editors like Sana Amanat, and awesome Creators like Dan Slott, G. Willow Wilson, Jason Aaron, Marguerite Bennet ect. even if there is a noticeable drop in sales would Perlmutter be even impacted by that? i think not.
This also comes down to another issue that always irks me when there is talk about diversity and the discussion is always about how "Marvel" or "DC" if doing something wrong, can you really fault a whole company for the misdeeds of a few?
So is Marvel now the big bad or is it just Perlmutter and should his actions be reflected on Marvel as a whole, when he propably has minimal input on the product we love to read and watch?

From what I can tell, this him personally donating. Granted he's donating to an abhorrent person's presidential campaign, but his political views shouldn't be an indicator of Marvel's as a company. The two are entirely removed from each other.
