Unilever would continue advertising on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook in the United States after stopping in June due to hate speech on the aforementioned platforms during the election period in the United States.

Unilever would continue advertising on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook in the United States after stopping in June due to hate speech on the aforementioned platforms during the election period in the United States.

Unilever earlier this year has joined an advertising boycott against Facebook as part of the US civil rights groups’ campaign that is called “Stop Hate for Profit” after the tragic death of George Floyd, a Black man in Minneapolis who has died while in police custody on May.

Facebook has gladly welcomed the move from Unilever.

“We look forward to our continued partnership in 2021 and remain committed to our work with the Global Reliance for Responsible Media to fight harmful content online,” The vice president of global business group at Facebook, Carolyn Everson, said in an emailed statement.

Twitter was not immediately available to make a statement.
