The North Face Pulls Ads from Facebook

Chris Mills Rodrigo, The Hill, June 19, 2020

The North Face on Friday became the highest-profile company to join an advertising boycott against Facebook.


The Anti-Defamation League, NAACP, Sleeping Giants, Color Of Change, Free Press and Common Sense called on companies to stop advertising on Facebook for the month of July to protest what they call a failure by the platform to regulate hateful content.


“Effective June 19th, The North Face is halting all activity and U.S. paid advertising with Facebook until stricter policies are put in place to stop racist, violent or hateful content and misinformation from circulating on the platform,” a spokesperson told The Hill in a statement.

“We know that for too long harmful, racist rhetoric and misinformation has made the world unequal and unsafe, and we stand with the NAACP” {snip}
