UPDATE February 10 2017: After 55,000 of you tweeted directly to Costco overnight, the retail giant responded to let us know that it is taking steps to ensure that its logo does not appear on the Breitbart site. Through this communication, we learned that Costco itself does not advertise on the Breitbart site -- its logo was put into ads for Acer laptops without its knowledge or consent, and it is taking steps to ensure that its logo does not appear on the ads.
Costco has also informed us that as a matter of policy it does no digital advertising outside of its own website and social media. Even so, we've asked the company to confirm that if that policy changes, it will never advertise on the Breitbart site. We're still awaiting a conclusive response, and we have updated our petition text to reflect this.
Breitbart is the extreme far-right website that helped get Trump elected -- and now its former CEO is the most powerful unelected person in the White House. Breitbart is vying for a massive global expansion into Europe in time for key elections.
But Breitbart can't expand without money from advertisers.
Because of people like you, Kelloggs, BMW and T-Mobile are among the 900+ companies have already pulled ads from the website. Now it's time for other companies to step up.
Tell Costco to commit to never advertise with Breitbart.
Breitbart spews hate against women, LGBTQ+ people, Muslims and people of colour. Costco is a global company with millions of customers and members, and it cares about what we think. Together, we can show Costco that Breitbart's brand of bigotry is bad for business.
There is a massive and inspiring grassroots campaign that is gaining traction everyday through social media. Already, over 900 companies have pulled their advertising from Breitbart with dedicated pressure from Sleeping Giants and SumOfUs members.
Together, SumOfUs members have moved Lufthansa Airlines, The University of British Columbia among others to ditch Breitbart -- and our work has already forced both Amazon and Shopify to respond.
Will you join the movement to stop Trump's brand of hatred from spreading?
