RE: Competitive Clause and Meg Turney
So seeing the absolute sea of vitriol and filth being spewed towards RT because of Meg’s departure, I wanted to share a few thoughts on the matter, especially regarding competitive clauses.
1 - however this came about, please stop making it into a witch hunt. Meg posted up a video with the fact that she is still pursuing her passions with cosplay and modeling. She wasn’t shot on site or given a public flogging; no one on the RT site or staff is dissing her. STOP THE WITCH HUNT.
2 - If you’ve ever signed for a job requiring a contract beyond the usual paperwork accepting the position, you may have entered a Contract of Exclusivity. In the contract, it states that I cannot work with another company at the same time that A) directly competes against my current one or B) would directly benefit from knowledge and resources gained at my current position/place of employ. Violating this means I could be sued or lose wages and lose my job. If RT has that clause, and hey they probably do given their media base, and she decided to go outside of it, knowingly or unknowingly, that’s a violation. This is business. This the business world. RT isn’t a couple of people working out of a garage or small office; it’s a multimedia company with their own movie. They are a business. Please respect that.
3 - She is and will remain a popular personality and family member of RT. That doesn’t diminish because of this. She’s gained followers and fans from RT and introduced so many to them as well. Meg is a sparkle and won’t be fading anytime soon. Please wish her luck and not bound or speculate.
4 - FOR YOU RTX BOUND FOLKS:
DO NOT BE JACKASSES AND HIGHJACK PANELS TO ASK MEG ABOUT HER LEAVING. IT’S RUDE TO MEG, TO PANEL MEMBERS, AND THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY. Talk to Meg at her autograph sessions, message her online. Don’t be assholes.
Finally, to Meg, I wish you nothing but the best. May you continue to be a staple of the cosplay community and modeling world. May your streams always flow seamlessly and your makeup stay on even in the worst heat. Lots and lots of love to you 💖💖💖💖💖
