Facebook advertiser boycott growing

A growing list of companies are pulling ads from Facebook. For many of them, it’s part of an advertiser boycott in protest of what they say are the site’s failures to stop the spread of hate.

A civil rights coalition, which includes the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the NAACP, launched the #StopHateforProfit campaign last week when it called on major corporations to put a pause on advertising on Facebook, citing the company’s “repeated failure to meaningfully address the vast proliferation of hate on its platforms.”

More than 240 businesses and organizations have joined the campaign, according to a list on Stop Hate for Profit’s website as of Wednesday morning. 

The list includes well-known brands such as Verizon, Coca-ColaUnilever, Honda, The North Face, REI, the Hershey Company, Ben & Jerry’s, The Clorox Company, Adidas, Ford, Denny’s, Volkswagen, Microsoft, Blue Bottle Coffee, Chobani, Lululemon, Levi’s, Mozilla, Patagonia, Eileen Fisher, Eddie Bauer, JanSport, Dockers and Target.
