Celebs React to Ravelry Announcing Ban on Donald Trump and His Administration

The popular social networking site for fiber artists (crochet, knitting, weaving, spinning, etc.) recently announced that they will no longer provide a space for support of Trump and his administration.

In their longer statement found on their site, they specify that this includes "support in the form of forum posts, projects, patterns, profiles, and all other content."

They also specify the following:

-You can still participate if you do in fact support the administration, you just can’t talk about it there.
-Not endorsing the Democrats nor banning Republicans.
-Definitely not banning conservative politics. Hate groups and intolerance are different from other types of political positions.
-Not banning people for past support.
-Do not try to weaponize this policy by entrapping people who do support the Trump administration into voicing their support.
-Antagonizing conservative members for their unstated positions is not acceptable.
