Amazon: Stop advertising on Breitbart
CREDO members recently helped force Bill O’Reilly, Fox News’ flagship racist and misogynist, off the air. Now we need to turn our attention to Breitbart, a white supremacist, misogynistic, fake news media outlet formerly run by Steve Bannon that helped fuel Donald Trump's rise to power.
After months of pressure from progressive activists, more than 1,000 advertisers have abandoned Breitbart over its racist, sexist, anti-Semitic and xenophobic reporting. But one company stands out for continuing to fund Breitbart’s hate: Amazon.
Our friends at UltraViolet, SumOfUs and MoveOn — along with the social media campaign Sleeping Giants — have been pushing on Amazon executives for months, but they have so far refused to pull their ads. Can you help ramp up the pressure today? (Via petitions or messages to them).
Amazon won’t accept discriminatory ads on its own site. There is no reason for it to advertise on a site that is literally the breeding ground for some of the most toxic hate in the country.
Tell Amazon: Stop funding Breitbart’s hate.
