Coca-Cola quietly deletes language supporting BLM after Ted Cruz calls out pro-Hamas post
Coca-Cola has removed language from its Twitter account in support of the Black Lives Matter movement after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called out a now-deleted post from the social media giant that promoted Hamas.
The original tweet from Coca-Cola posted June 3 said, “We support and stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter,” along with a link to a fundraising page for the organization.
A few days later, Cruz took to his Twitter account to call out the post, commenting that many brands promoting Black Lives Matter have partnered with and promoted Hamas, calling it “unacceptable and wrong.”
Following Cruz’s comments, Coca-Cola quietly deleted their post of support for Black Lives Matter. A spokesperson for the company told Fox News that the post was removed because it was “inadvertently shared without the necessary context.”
While Coca-Cola has not issued a formal statement on the matter, the company has stated that their support for social justice and racial equality remains unwavering.
