It’s that time of the year when corporations signal all their virtue in the best way the internet gives us; changing our avatars to reflect that day’s/week’s/month’s cause. With it being LGBT “Pride” month, corporations are showing their “pride” by making their avatars into rainbow-laden versions of their logo on every account…

…accept accounts based in places where LGBT people aren’t accepted.

What do I mean? Check out the following brands that only have “pride” in places where it’s monetarily safe to do so.
