Amazon: Stop Supporting Breitbart's Hate

It's well past time for Amazon to stop supporting hate. Remove Amazon ads from Breitbart.com and adopt a policy to ban advertising on any website that promotes hate.

Why is this important?

A social media campaign called "Sleeping Giants" led more than 1,000 companies to stop advertising on the white nationalist website Breitbart.com. Virtually every major corporation worldwide has blocked their ads from appearing on Breitbart, but one glaring exception remains: Amazon.

Breitbart is the white nationalist website formerly run by Trump adviser Steve Bannon. It's racist, sexist, and spreads hate against Muslims. Breitbart regularly has headlines like "Birth control makes women unattractive and crazy" and "The Confederate flag proclaims a glorious heritage." It is way outside of the American mainstream, even in these polarizing times.

It's well past time for Amazon to stop supporting hate. Please ask Amazon to remove their ads from Breitbart.com and adopt a policy to ban advertising on any website that promotes hate.

Reasons for signing

  • I looked through Amazon's leadership principles thinking I'd find one to demonstrate why Jeff Bezos should stop advertising on Breitbart, but I cant find one. Makes you wonder what kind of a company at its core doesnt believe in simply doing the right thing.
  • I love Amazon, but I hate Trump. I would hate to have to prove how much I hate him by not using Amazon anymore. Please stop supporting Breitbart and Trump!
  • Jeff, the world is watching. This is a simple action you can take to set an example. Lose Breitbart. Lose the white supremacist product pages. Take the steps you know you should take.
