Brands pause X ad spending after ads serve with pro-Nazi content

August 21, 2023

Ads from at least 19 brands appeared alongside a pro-Hitler account on X, formerly known as Twitter. X may say its platform is committed to brand safety, but it still has work to do. Media Matters for America published this report detailing how X has been placing ads for brands on a verified pro-Adolf Hitler account with thousands of followers. “The company continues to monetize the openly antisemitic account despite reportedly acknowledging it had violated the platform’s ‘rules against violent speech,'” Media Matters reported. Two of these brands – NCTA and Gilead – “immediately paused their ad spending on X,” CNN reported.
