The Hill reports:
Conservative commentator and radio host Ben Shapiro has reportedly lost a second advertiser after giving a controversial speech at the annual March for Life anti-abortion rally in Washington, D.C., on Friday.
Calm, a relaxation and meditation app, responded to users condemning Shapiro’s speech on Twitter, writing late Friday night that the company did do not “align with” Shapiro’s message and that it would be pulling its sponsorship.
The commentator garnered widespread backlash following his appearance at the rally for saying “no pro-life person would kill baby Hitler” because “baby Hitler was a baby.”

We do not align with this message. We’re pulling our sponsorship.
