Sephora sued for Defamation

We are seeing a new wave of lawsuits that illustrate a new twist to the push-pull between a companies right to choose who they work with and employee and discrimination based on ideology or activities that occur outside of work. From Amy Cooper (The Central Park Karen) suing her former employer after being fired for the viral incident in central park to Beauty Influencer Amanda Ensing suing Sephora for alleged defamatory remarks made when cutting ties with her. Conservative 'comedian' and commentator Steven Crowder has said he is suing YouTube for demonetizing and striking his channel, he is ostensibly suing for discrimination based on viewpoint, but we will see. The line between workplace behavior and outside-of-work behavior is clearly blurring due to social media. So where do we go from here?
