    So the Ringling Bros. Circus is in Cleveland, OH for a little under a week starting today. So of course there are protests planned for each day they are here.

    https://www.facebook.com/NEOCircusBoycott
    https://www.facebook.com/events/401230270003146/

    I’m not sure if I will be able to make it myself to the protests but I have been sharing the event page like crazy on my own facebook page as well as local news stations, newspapers, etc.

    Last night around 11pm I posted the link to the protest event on Ringling Bros. actual facebook page and also made a comment on their recent “Are elephants lucky?” status that said “Elephants in the wild are lucky.” I went back to their page today to re-post not only to find both my post and my comment deleted (which I was expecting as much) but they have completely banned me from liking, commenting, or posting anything on their fb page.

    In a way I find this really amusing and almost like an accomplishment on my part. Though at the same time it just reinforces how shady Ringling actually is.

    Maybe you should start a “Banned by Ringling” Fb page. ;)

    You criticize them on their public page and they cut you off? How is that remotely shady?

      @Dars Well see, they are a public profile. Not a private profile. If it was a private individual, they could make a case to justify blocking her. But they ARE public. Thus, trying to silence someone pointing out a problem that they have is called card stacking. Card Stacking is a Negative Propaganda Technique. That’s BAD. What they’re doing isn’t removing criticism. It’s trying to cover up that they’re doing something wrong. That’s hiding the truth from the public. How could you NOT think that’s shady? Think. THINK!

      @Dars It’s probably the fact that by doing that it shows they know there is something wrong with what they are doing but are preventing attention being brought upon it. The fact that they are trying to hide it is shady.. Just a guess though :p

        Just cutting someone off who barges int to criticize you doesn’t seem shady to be me, in an of itself at least. Seems pretty fair and reasonable.

          @Dars not sure if you’ve seen any videos of how Ringling Bros. treat elephants! You can take a look here or do some of your own research: http://features.peta2.com/neverforget/default.asp

          This is an old business practice of “not airing your dirty laundry.” Companies, businesses, government, etc. do this all the time to save face and deny any form of wrongdoing or what they know the public will not take to lightly. If they’re choosing to do something publicly, why aren’t people allowed to publicly to state their opinions regarding these actions? There is no freedom of speech?
