Specifically regarding free speech:

I support free speech for people, especially 'little' people. Corporations are not people, and free speech for them should not be a thing.

Interesting view. What do you believe corporations shouldn't be allowed to say?

To me the main point is that no person was censored here, and free speech is a human right not a corporate one.

But to answer your question, I would support restrictions on political messaging by corporations, as a side point to heavily restricting corporate political donations and lobbying. I might also support laws that penalize corporations for telling clear lies or misleading statements.

Edit: A word.

Can you give some examples of what it is okay to say and not? Also do you agree with tearing down any advert you don't like?

See my reply to Mattvision.

I'm not in the habit of tearing down stuff, but if something is going to be torn down - better it's corporate property than individual or public property. I couldn't care less if people wish to deface/tear down advertisements of this type.

Edit: By 'type' I mean corporate advertising in bus shelters, not gay stuff.
