Today PepsiCo (PEP), Hershey (HSY), Starbucks (SBUX) and Clorox (CLX) joined the Facebook (FB) advertising boycott.

This news comes after other major brands such as Unilever and Coca Cola (KO) also paused advertising on the company’s social media platforms.

On Friday, Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, outlined steps that the company will take against hate speech and racism including the removal of posts that incite violence and adding warning labels to posts that could be hate speech.

The stock is down about 10.3% from the all-time highs made on 6/23/20.

And as of 2:30 PM ET, Facebook (FB) is trading up $3.70 or 1.71%.
