Kellogg’s Declares War on Breitbart

Another leftist company joins in an apparent war with conservative consumers who overwhelming voted Donald Trump into the white house.

Target, Allstate and now Kellogg’s have all pushed their liberal agenda over what may be best for their shareholders.

Kellogg’s, manufacturer of Pringles, Eggo Waffles, as well as Special K, among many other cereals, announced on Tuesday they are pulling ads from Breitbart because its 45,000,000 conservative readers are not “aligned with our values as a company.”

Breitbart.com reports that Kellogg’s action will have virtually no revenue impact; however, they are calling on their readers to boycott Kellogg’s products launching a #DumpKelloggs petition.

Kris Charles, Kellogg’s spokesperson said, “We regularly work with our media-buying partners to ensure our ads do not appear on sites that aren’t aligned with our values as a company.  We recently reviewed the list of sites where our ads can be placed and decided to discontinue advertising on Breitbart.com. We are working to remove ads from that site.”

Brietbart reported that Kellogg’s offered no examples of how Breitbart’s 45 million readers fail to align with the breakfast maker’s values.  A spokesman said, “The move appears to be one more example of an out-of-touch corporation embracing false left-wing narratives used to cynically smear the hard-working Americans that populate this nation’s heartland.”

Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alexander Marlow encouraged the boycott of Kellogg’s products, describing their war against Breitbart News as bigoted and anti-American: “Breitbart News is the largest platform for pro-family content anywhere on the Internet. We are fearless advocates for traditional American values, perhaps most important among them is freedom of speech, or our motto ‘more voices, not less.’

For Kellogg’s, an American brand, to blacklist Breitbart News to placate left-wing totalitarians is a disgraceful act of cowardice. They insult our incredibly diverse staff and spit in the face of our 45,000,000 highly engaged, highly perceptive, highly loyal readers, many of whom are Kellogg’s customers. Boycotting Breitbart News for presenting mainstream American ideas is an act of discrimination and intense prejudice. If you serve Kellogg’s products to your family, you are serving up bigotry at your breakfast table.”

“Kellogg’s has shown its contempt for Breitbart’s 45 million readers and for the main street American values that they hold dear,” said Breitbart President and CEO, Larry Solov. “Pulling its advertising from Breitbart News is a decidedly cynical and un-American act. The only sensible response is to join together and boycott Kellogg’s products in protest.”
