Joe who was running this campaign has decided to take down this petition. He said the following:
“When I started my campaign I was trying to raise a serious issue about what I saw as a reporter not being balanced and fair in the way that the news was covered. My petition has since been hijacked by a group of people who absolutely do not share my views.
I would like to reassure everyone that I am a passionate advocate for equality in all areas, not just gender equality. This petition has precisely zero to do with gender.
As a result of the sexist trolls who have attempted to derail my petition, I have decided to take it down. “
