During a tense town hall, staff cried and expressed dismay with the publishing giant's decision to publish 'Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life.'
“He is an icon of hate speech and transphobia and the fact that he’s an icon of white supremacy, regardless of the content of his book, I’m not proud to work for a company that publishes him,” a junior employee who is a member of the LGBTQ community and who attended the town hall told VICE World News.
Another employee said “people were crying in the meeting about how Jordan Peterson has affected their lives.” They said one co-worker discussed how Peterson had radicalized their father and another talked about how publishing the book will negatively affect their non-binary friend.

Ya know what? Thank you. Had no idea who this is or why is should/shouldn’t be crying in the first. Turns out I read the actual article from Vice. While he may be controversial his advice apparently includes classic hate-speech such as:
“Stand up straight”
“Get your own house in order before you criticize the world...”
Still trynna figure out which I’m supposed to cry over.....

I suggest you start buying the books you're going to miss.

You have to feel for the children who work there though.
Take it from someone who works in editorial -- you have to actually read the work you edit and proof. For a woke leftist, that means being exposed to thought that is simply beyond that pale when you're talking about a publishing house that still dares to not tow the line.
