Take a Stand Against Bullying and Censorship! Show Support for Rick Harper and #RoomFullofSpoons


Ladies and gentlemen, censorship via bullying is a very real problem these days. If somebody doesn't like what somebody else is saying or trying to say, all they have to do use bully tactics that are extremely difficult to combat and it's almost impossible to regain any momentum you had, and you are even afraid to speak out against the person who did it out of fear they will do it again.  My recent experience with Birdemic director James Nguyen proved to me that losing your rightful freedom of expression and, in turn, your emotional and financial well being, is something you absolutely do not want happening to you.



Rick Harper has created an amazing documentary called Room Full of Spoons about the making of the cult movie The Room, and the long guarded background of it's creator, Tommy Wiseau. Since the project's inception, it has been plagued with bully and legal tactics to keep him from making and releasing his movie, which he has absolutely every right to make. The latest chapter in all of this is a court injunction in Ontario which essentially cripples Harper's project from progressing. The movie is finished, but they cannot move on it until all this is settled. My purpose today is to express how very angry I am that things like this are allowed to happen.

This is a time when we need to stand up and say THIS IS CENSORSHIP! THIS IS BULLYING! AND THIS IS NOT OKAY! We need to stand up and declare these things loudly. We need to tell people who engage in these tactics that they are taking a sledgehammer to one of the corners of modern civilization; FREE SPEECH! 

I have personally seen this film, which is why I am asking everybody to please show support for this film and it's creator! Let him know that we believe in him and that we are DEMANDING that this documentary be released. Let those who are opposing him know that they cannot do these things and not suffer the consequences from consumers! PLEASE TAKE TO SOCIAL MEDIA WITH THE HASHTAG #ROOMFULLOFSPOONS TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR RICK HARPER AND HIS DOCUMENTARY! Let him know we believe in him and his cause! The world deserves to hear what he has to say, and he has every right on this planet to say it!
