The company accused the social network that she has done nothing to stop hate speech on their platforms.
Here are some official statements from companies that have joined the campaign #StopHateforProfit (“Stop the hatred for income”).
“We suspend our ads as long as Facebook will not be able to create an acceptable solution, as it has done to Youtube”.
“We urge Facebook to take clear and unequivocal measures to clean up the social network from the spread of racism and hatred.”
“We urge colleagues to join us.”
“We are committed to significant changes in Facebook and end to hateful rhetoric”.
“We are removing all ads on Facebook and Instagram until the end of July, pending significant action on the part of the social network”

Now, as stated by the Vice-President of Facebook in international business Caroline Everson, the company is in talks with human rights organizations and marketers. She also noted,
that the company “respects the decision of every brand and remains focused on the important work to eliminate hate speech and to provide reliable information before
