Those outraged that Jill Abramson — a woman — was fired from the New York Times for supposedly looking into pay disparity have taken to Twitter to boycott the prominent news outlet.

Using the hashtag #JillAbramson, many of those upset by the firing said they would boycott the Old Gray Lady until it rehires Abramson.


Of course, the people calling for the boycott don’t have many followers, and no big names have come out in support of the boycott. Also, the Times' publisher said there was no pay discrepancy, but that hasn’t stopped the outraged from crying foul:


I wonder if the outrage will stop if the publisher is proved right. Probably not.
