Exxon's Gay Discrimination Protection Rejection Discussed On 'The Rubin Report'

Exxon Mobil's controversial rejection of anti-gay protections was the subject of a heated debate on this week's installment of "The Rubin Report."

Featured alongside host Dave Rubin was noted lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights advocate Fred Karger and Brett Erlich.

"One word: Texas," Karger noted. "They're Texas-based, largest corporation in the world ... we need to get aggressive against these companies. I think we need to boycott companies like Exxon."

Karger then added, "If we can hit them in the pocketbook, I think we will get them to come around and do the right thing."

Slightly more skeptical was Erlich, who noted, "I'll try real hard to boycott, but I don't think everyone's going to boycott Mobil."
