Major brands and companies are ending their relationships with the NRA due to the popularity of a recent social media movement.
In the past 24 hours, companies have been ending their relationships with the NRA after the hashtag #BoycottNRA rose in popularity. Many of these companies provided discounts for NRA members. Strangely, most of the companies supporting the NRA are & where rental car companies.
At the time this article is being written, the companies that have ended their relationships with the NRA are — Enterprise, Alamo, National, First National Bank of Omaha, Symantec, MetLife, Chubb, Wyndham Hotels, and Best Western.
Here is what some of those companies had to say —
Symantec has stopped its discount program with the National Rifle Association.
MetLife: We value all our customers but have decided to end our discount program with the NRA.
Best Western® Hotels & Resorts does not have an affiliation with and is not a corporate partner of the National Rifle Association.
There are still, however, plenty of companies who are yet to drop their discounts to NRA members, including — Hertz, Avis, FedEx (who is being pressured to stop offering discounts), and Lifelock. Even Amazon is being pressured to drop the NRA TV streaming service from its devices, as are Apple TV and Roku.
