Enlist in the Sleeping Giants army, which has convinced more than 1,500 advertisers to abandon the disgusting right-wing site Breitbart.com.
Sleeping Giants appeared in the wake of the 2016 election and aims to cut off the lifeblood that sustains the hateful Breitbart.com site–advertising.
Anyone with a Twitter account can help their cause. Warning: It does require you to visit the Breitbart.com site. (But don’t go straight there, or else your search history will be tainted by the Breitbart visit. Open an incognito window first. If you don’t know how to do this, follow these instructions.)
Once there, take a screenshot of an ad next to their odious content. (Make sure to get both!)
Tweet the screenshot at the company behind the ad with a polite note asking them to stop advertising on Breitbart.
Repeat as often as you can stand it.
See Sleeping Giants’s confirmed list of advertisers who have left Brietbart.com due to its efforts (as of March 17, 2017, 1,594 companies had pulled out):
