Salesforce CEO Cancels Company Events In Indiana After Passage of Anti-Gay Law CEO Marc Benioff canceled the company’s events in Indiana after Gov. Mike Pence signed a law on Thursday that could protect business owners who refuse to serve LGBT couples.

“Today we are canceling all programs that require our customers/employees to travel to Indiana to face discrimination,” Benioff tweeted.

That followed a tweet from Benioff on Wednesday, saying that the San Francisco-based cloud-computing company would reduce its investment in Indiana as a result of “outrage” over the bill, known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The law will let individuals and corporations use their religious beliefs as a defense if they are sued for denying service to LGBT customers.
