More Companies Ditch NRA: MetLife, Symantec, Hertz

NPR reports:

As a groundswell grows against the National Rifle Association in the aftermath of last week’s school massacre in Parkland, Fla., several businesses say they are ending their partnerships with the gun advocacy group.

The brands — ranging from insurance companies to rental cars — all announced their decisions on Twitter, many in direct response to tweets demanding change coalesced under the trending hashtag #boycottNRA. On Friday, Symantec, the cybersecurity company, announced via Twitter it has halted its NRA discount program.

About an hour later, the insurance company MetLife followed suit, tweeting, “We value all our customers but have decided to end our discount program with the NRA.”
