Like Coca-Cola, Starbucks taps out on hate-filled social media, from CNBC:
- Starbucks is the latest company to say it will pause advertising on “all social media platforms” and promises to have discussions internally and with media partners and civil rights organizations to stop the spread of hate speech. The company will continue to post on social media without paid promotion.
- Starbucks said though it is pausing advertising, it isn’t joining the #StopHateForProfit boycott campaign, which kicked off earlier this month.
- Coca Cola on Friday also said it would pause advertising on all social media platforms globally, while Unilever is halting advertising on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter in the U.S. through Dec. 31.
- On Saturday, spirits giant Diageo said it will be pausing paid advertising globally on “major social media platforms” beginning in July.
