Why are businesses from the film industry, to sports, to video game developers pushing politics when their customers don't like it?

There are many examples of movies, sports leagues, and video games getting less business and income due to their forcing political jargon down their customers throats. Are business leaders just losing their minds or what?

    It's a very poor decision made by management. If they were smart, a business would remain neutral on controversial matters such as politics, social justice, political correctness, etc. As soon as a statement is made, that business has alienated a segment of their potential market and it will cost them money in the long run. Some of these CEO's just can't keep their personal philosophies to themselves, they believe their position (this goes for athletes as well) gives them the forum to express their beliefs publicly and that what they believe actually matters somehow.

    They don’t understand that those who promote identity politics and other SJW nonsense are a very vocal minority.  Most Americans are fed up with it.  This majority of Americans won’t speak up verbally, they will simply stop supporting businesses, TV, etc that push such politics.
