    These corporations didn’t have a problem with the voting restriction laws until the looming possibility of a boycott threatened their bottom line.

    • Correct, corporations have no morals

    • @Normal Human Corporations, despite what the Supreme Court said, are NOT actually people.

    • @Normal Human Nor should they. It’s up to people to clearly state what they will stand for and what won’t fly. Then the corporation can decide whether making money is still their goal today and how do you best achieve that given the circumstances.

    • Like I always say, speak with your wallet, it’s the only language they understand, especially now with the pandemic threatening their large profits.

    • Ok but why would this not be a step towards MORE victory?! It counts.

  2. coca cola lost 500,000 customers from the last admin

  3. It’s too bad we have to “waste” so much time with activism but it’s because of the overwhelming forces of evil that run full blast here 24/7

  4. Amazing how fast their attitudes change when you hit them in the WALLET !! Just shows how money hungry companies work…

    To late Coca-Cola to late delta to late home depot BOYCOTT BOYCOTT BOYCOTT

  6. Proudly doing my part by boycotting the Republican party for the last 40 years.

      I was one of them.. then i became a republican bc as a latino i got sick of the victimization and socialist policies. I don’t regret it.

    • @Glasgow Doors If you’re for real, sorry you bought into the fake reasoning.

    • @Glasgow Doors Interesting. No one does the politics of identity & perceived persecution like today’s Republican Party. The party of “personal responsibility”, is no more. (Then again, no one insults Republican voters like the Republican Party & right wing media do, mainly via gaslighting & projection.)

  7. Boycott Boycott Boycott! Spend your money elsewhere. Support communities affected by this oppressive legislation.

  8. Boycotts stay on the table. They will say one thing in public but do differently in private.

  9. It’s nice to know that corporations run the world that we live in.

  10. It’s bonkers that, in order to affect politics, people need to ask corporations for help.

    • I think its even more bonkers that people expect the corporations to help MORE than they’re elected politicians?! I feel like THAT’S a statement too….

  11. I’ll never buy a Coke again guess I’m part of the Pepsi generation now🧐

  12. the drink machine at work carries Coke products, guess I will be bringing other brands from home. Bye Coke. Bye Home Depot.

    • It was frustrating for me for all of one day. There’s a Coke machine at my place of work and I like drinking Coke a lot. But I didn’t touch it. When I found out about this, I didn’t touch a drop of Coke from that day on. It has only been rough for one day. So far I’m good without it

  13. MLK called for boycotts in the south back in the 60s. To bad we have to go threw all this again.

    Hit them in the pockets. Money talks unfortunately 💰

  15. This corporations only speak a good game, but they do nothing to follow up. We the people need to boycott these corporations that do nothing to help change the direction that these laws are going into. In any case, it is such a shame that corporations have more voice than the people. The lesson here people, spend your money with the businesses that have your back. Shop the mom and pop stores as often as you can.

  16. I guess I need to learn my way around Lowes.

  17. Thank you delta and coke thank you very very very much but yall know very well you can do so much more to help prevent this

  18. to all those below who say Coke out, Pepsi in, Home Depot out, Lowes in, Delta out, United in,
    it behooves you to find out if your option is headquartered in a state (and there are, last I heard,
    26 of them) that also has new (or old) restrictive voting laws on the table, or in the books…
    jessayin…
    and bear in mind that, support local is almost always the best option

  19. The worst thing you can do to corrupt politicians is inform their constituents.

    So Delta, has had a change of mind. What about coke? So what you’re saying we should have a change of heart.😂😂 We will think about it.😂 maybe later. After you make some real noise. Ok we are reasonable.
