More advertisers flee Facebook as boycott grows

It couldn’t have happened to nicer people. The most ironic thing is that the Facebook boycott is just a virtue-signaling scam by corporations, some of whom use child slave labor in the global South. This would be like the National Socialists denouncing the Catholic Church for its legacy of anti-Semitism.

A growing number of major advertisers are abandoning Facebook amid criticism the social media company is letting hateful or false posts go unchecked.

Chipotle, HP, Pfizer and Puma are the latest to pull their ads from Facebook. They join a list of major brands including Adidas, Clorox, Coca-Cola, Conagra, Denny’s, Ford, Starbucks, Unilever and scores of smaller businesses that have halted advertising on the platform. A pledge by Mark Zuckerberg on Friday to label rule-breaking posts has done little to mollify advertisers.
