'HATEFUL' BRITISH TABLOIDS UNDER PRESSURE AFTER LEGO PULLS ADS
A campaign that asks brands to stop advertising with some of Britain's leading tabloids is gaining momentum. The Stop Funding Hate campaign scored a major victory this weekend after LEGO said it would stop running promotional campaigns in The Daily Mail tabloid for "the foreseeable future." Now, the campaign is hoping to increase pressure on retailers John Lewis and Co-op, as well as supermarket chains Waitrose, Marks and Spencer (MAKSF) and Iceland. Stop Funding Hate has accused The Sun, The Daily Mail and The Daily Express of running "hate campaigns" in their coverage of migration, race and religion. They're asking brands to pull advertisements from the tabloids.
