Stardock Boycotting UPS? [Updated]

Stardock boss Brad Wardell has updated his Facebook page with his objection to UPS pulling its advertising from FOX in objection to some of the comments by conservative host Glenn Beck (calling President Obama a "racist" in particular). Apparently Wardell is a fairly staunch conservative as well, which prompts him to say that Stardock does "a non-trivial amount of shipping with UPS" and that if they did not reverse their position on this, he would take this business to FedEx. Boycotts are somewhat common, but this is the first time we can recall the treat of a company being boycotted over their own boycott. Thanks GamePolitics via The Angry Bear. Update: Brad Wardell sent a statement about this story clarifying his position.

Brad here:

There was no such announcement. The article is a recap of a recap of a Facebook comment stating that it annoyed me when companies started pushing their ideology on others by boycotting entire media networks.

I then told my guys to click on the Fed Ex box instead of UPS box and mentioned it on Facebook where it then got blogged and then reblogged and subsequently ended up on Game Politics.

I don't watch Glenn Beck or care one bit about his show.
