LOS ANGELES (AP) — Breitbart is encouraging a boycott of Kellogg’s products after the cereal maker said it would no longer advertise on the news and opinion website, formerly run by President-elect Donald Trump aide Steve Bannon.

The Kellogg Company cited company “values” in explaining its decision; a spokeswoman said Thursday it has “nothing to do with politics.”

Breitbart has been condemned for featuring racist, sexist and anti-Semitic content.

Breitbart said Kellogg’s decision amounted to “economic censorship of mainstream conservative political discourse” and “as un-American as it gets.” It launched a #DumpKelloggs petition Wednesday calling for a boycott of Kellogg’s.

Breitbart said Kellogg’s decision represents “an escalation in the war by leftist companies like Target and Allstate against conservative customers” and their values.

Target and Allstate also have reportedly pulled ads from the site.

Traditionally, news organizations maintain a separation between their editorial and advertising operations in order to avoid potential conflicts.

  1. Just saying on said:

    Poor excuse for a parent? Really? As usual Larry, insult. Again, it’s a shame that you feel your opinion trumps everyone else’s. Your mind is so narrow. You really need to get out more. There is a big world out there.

  2. Don’t you just want to do a James Cagney on these people (old movie where gangster Cagney takes a half of grapefruit and smashes it into the face of the fussing woman seating in front of him. These people are disgraceful and dangerous They want to boycott cereal.

      I know, Crazy right?! Here is where they will lose. Kids have the power when it comes to cereal and don’t care about these looney toons. All they want is their Frosted Flakes and such, I think Breitbart needs to go take several seats and get a grip.
