Don't give companies brownie points for doing the simplest thing. This can be corporate slacktivism, all sound no actions. Donations, crying out to sources people can use or contribute to themselves, doing anything with any material more than saying"shouts out to oppressed minorities, we'll wait to promote to you until you have some attention to spare?" Or, best case situation, just imagining a delay without linking it into something entirely unrelated to them except for its impact in their reveal. It is not, till they wish to pretend delaying their marketing plan is an act of solidarity. Solidarity just means that they agree with their origin, and there is nothing that suggest they do not. Yes, there is, the simple fact that they have done nothing to benefit anyone but themselves. That they just delay it without asserting that delaying an ad is somehow"in solidarity" with current protests. Don't be a fool that believes there is any weight whatsoever to some corporate entity"taking a side" by delaying marketing materials. I don't think this is a bad thing or a fantastic thing. It is a completely pointless, neutral item and EA deserves no credit for this.
That's a really good point, I hadn't considered it like that. I get you wish to support the reason but what does that have to do with football? It brings attention to the matter and retains it on the matter instead of letting a diversion from it through their game. And then the whole reaction to it from outside the league when he had been performing which are directly associated with both the issue and football. NFL players have been protesting police brutality during games for years now. Taking into consideration the game contains the likeness of lots of these characters it isn't surprising that EA might do this.
