Advertiser Drops MSNBC Over Kurt Eichenwald’s Attacks on Parkland Teen Kyle Kashuv
On Friday, leading acne treatment company Proactiv announced it was rushing to remove advertisements placed on MSNBC programming after a former contributor for the liberal network slammed pro-gun Parkland teenager Kyle Kashuv online.
Kurt Eichenwald is currently a senior writer at Newsweek. In a since-deleted tweet sent at 10:35 a.m. on Friday, Eichenwald attempted to call out Kashuv in harsh and dramatic tones and terminology. He wrote:
Kyle…you continue to disappoint. Trafficking in fantasies, fine. Your followers are infantile, your only form of debate is insult. And you wonder why I have no respect for you.
In response, Kashuv called for an advertiser campaign boycott aimed at MSNBC–apparently an indirect rejoinder to schoolmate David Hogg‘s boycott aimed at Fox News‘ Laura Ingraham.
Many of Kashuv’s followers dutifully complied with the request and began to direct their outrage at various MSNBC advertisers while also highlighting the Kashuv-Eichenwald interaction. Proactiv quickly got the memo and announced, in a series of tweets posted late Friday afternoon..
Conservatives don’t usually play this game with the left but enough is enough.
