Starbucks suspends social media advertising

Starbucks Corporation revealed on Sunday that it will suspend all advertising on social media, thus joining the widespread boycott.

"We believe more must be done to create welcoming and inclusive online communities, and we believe both business leaders and policy makers need to come together to affect real change. We will pause advertising on all social media platforms while we continue discussions internally, with our media partners and with civil rights organizations in the effort to stop the spread of hate speech," the company said in a statement.

The number of United States companies that have announced advertising halts over offensive content posted on social media is rising by the day.
