GetUp! pulls petition against GP Pansy Lai who appeared in anti same-sex ad

GetUp! pulls petition against GP Pansy Lai who appeared in anti same-sex ad, by Dennis Shanahan.

This morning GetUp! said there had been dozens of complaints about the petition and was “found to be in breach” of the terms and conditions for petitions facilitated by GetUp! and the petition organisation CommunityRun.

“CommunityRun campaigns are not run or endorsed by GetUp!,’’ a spokesman told The Australian this morning. “This is made clear on the home page and ‘about us’ page of the CommunityRun website. …

“GetUp! does not support a petition targeting Dr Pansy Lai, which was uploaded over the weekend, nor did GetUp! endorse or organise it. The petition received dozens of complaints, which triggered a review process. Following the review, the petition was found to breach CommunityRun’s terms and conditions and was taken down on Monday morning.

Oh sure. Got too much push back, and you looked like a bully, didn’t you GetUp?
