I don’t know if the WordPress project has any official ties to the Free Software Foundation. I did a quick Google search but didn’t come up with anything.

We are a project whose members/contributors value diversity and inclusion, and we have done a lot of work to make our official events, (WordCamps) welcoming to everyone, including people with disabilities and children.

Richard Stallman is free to spout whatever disgusting, bigoted things pop into his brain, and even to offer non-apologies which serve no other purpose than to cover his ass.

And we, as a project, one around which a thriving community has formed, are free to disassociate ourselves from him and his comments.

Whether we like it or not, we are the gateway for a lot of people who normally wouldn’t touch free software on their own.
