Cards Against Humanity Drops Box Supplier Over Tea Party Affiliation

| 8 Apr 2014 22:03

Apparently, ULINE's CEO donates a lot of money to the Tea Party.

Cards Against Humanity creator Max Temkin has never been shy about his association with liberal politics, but today he publicly broke any business relationship with packing material company Uline Inc. over their CEO Richard Uihlein's status as the largest conservative donor in the State of Illinois. It's clear that Temkin, and by extension Cards Against Humanity, had simply overlooked Uline's affiliation with the far right, as he responded "THAT'S INSANE!" when confronted with some Uihlein's positions. Uline did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

High profile CEOs causing political disputes with other, differently principled companies has been in the news recently because of OKCupid's public diss to the Mozilla Foundation over having an anti-marriage equality CEO, followed by that same CEO's resignation. Both OKCupid and Mozilla have faced backlash for their actions in the public arena, and it's possible, though unlikely, that Cards Against Humanity will face the same or similar responses.

Either way, Temkin didn't seem that broken up about it.

Uline inc. is one of the largest shipping materials providers in the United States. Cards Against Humanity self-describes as a game that is "as despicable and awkward as you and your friends."
