Dear Purple Communications,
First of all, I want to thank you for listening to concerns of our Deaf community by removing your sponsorship and advertisement banner from Deaf Read and Deaf Video TV. As a viewer/reader, I was deeply disheartened by the rampant display of cyberbullying in many forms , especially audism with no regulation from the owner, Tayler Mayer for 2 years and still ongoing at this moment. We need to have a healthy online venue to develop and maintain our Deaf community. Allowing those unfortunate and unacceptable actions to go on only compromise our Deaf community as well as your company integrity. Lastly but not least, the children visit those sites as few are actually members of Deaf Video TV, they would see those actions and we are supposed to be role models for them. So in order to protect the integrity of your company’s image, it would be wise to refrain from re-sponsoring those sites till it all cleaned up and the integrity has been restored.
