"Simply stated, our goal was to make the 2022 Beijing Winter Games the least watched Olympics in history as we offered a powerful way to stand against China's Uyghur genocide and human rights abuses by refusing to watch the 2022 Beijing Olympics.
"The #LeastWatchedOlympics campaign, is sending a clear message to the Chinese government the world stands against China's human rights abuses and will not be a part of the CCP's attempt to use the Olympic Games as a propaganda tool.
"We are thankful the American people responded in a powerful way as they stood against Uyghur genocide and human rights abuses in China by refusing to watch the 2022 Beijing Olympics opening ceremony. However, for the next two weeks, we must continue to keep the pressure on the Chinese Communist Party and make the 2022 Beijing Olympics the #LeastWatchedOlympics"
