Ben & Jerry’s Suspends Paid Twitter Ads over ‘Hate Speech’

June 7, 2023

The Wrap reports that leftist ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s has announced a ban on all paid advertising on Elon Musk’s Twitter over growing concerns about online “hate speech.”

In a statement, the company said, “Musk and Twitter’s toxicity and tacit endorsement of hate and violence goes against everything our company stands for. Twitter must act today to end the extremist and violent content on the platform. Until that happens, Ben & Jerry’s will spend no money with Twitter and we call on all businesses and partners to do the same.”

“Hate speech is up dramatically while content moderation has become all but non-existent,” the company added. “In addition to the changes on the platform that have led to an increase in hate speech, Musk himself has doubled down on dangerous anti-democratic lies and white nationalist hate speech.”

Following that, Ben & Jerry’s described Twitter as a “threatening and even dangerous” space for a number of groups, including women, Jews and Muslims. The business urged Twitter to take action right away against violent and extremist content and urged other companies to take a similar stance.

Fact check: what this is really about is that the radicals at Ben & Jerry’s resent the fact that, under Musk, Twitter ceased censoring conservatives on the platform.
