In the middle of writing my NeoGAF story, I’ve just been told that BMW has withdrawn advertising from Gawker Media. The email specifically states that they do not tolerate bullying of any sort, and comes fresh on the heels of the Mercedes decision last week, when they also pulled out of Gawker.
Everything is paying off, so keep on going. Don’t let up on Gawker, or any of our other foes. Keep those emails pouring ins. Even in the face of the most negative media onslaught I’ve ever witnessed in my life, we are still fucking winning. Keep it up, GamerGate.
Here’s the email below:
UPDATE: Oh, and THANK YOU BMW!!
It's time to say: Thank you for standing up to bullies, BMW! #GamerGate @Gawker @gawkermedia @bmw pic.twitter.com/aiI69p9MBe

UPDATE 2: Here’s another email confirming the news.
UPDATE 3: I don’t think Gawker editor-in-chief Max Read gets it, yet. Here he is making sexist comments to Christina Hoff Sommers earlier today. Perhaps the advertisers would like to hear about this as well?
