GoDaddy: Veto The AZ Hate Bill

“GoDaddy strongly opposes Arizona Senate Bill 1062. As a company we honor and believe in the equal rights for all people, regardless of age, color, disability, national origin, race, religion, or sexual orientation. We believe this proposed legislation would have far-reaching negative consequences on the state and the companies that do business here, and would wrongly send a message that Arizona does not respect diversity.” – Blake Irving, CEO of Arizona-based domain giant GoDaddy, in an emailed response to JMG reader John.

NOTE: It doesn’t appear that GoDaddy has publicly commented on the bill and there’s nothing on their website, Twitter page, or Facebook page about SB1062.  Former GoDaddy vice president Christine Jones, who is running for Arizona governor as a “fiercely conservative Republican,” has told the local press that SB1062 is a “distraction from a focus on the economy.”
