Conservative commentator and radio host Ben Shapiro has lost two sponsors following his speech at the annual March for Life anti-abortion rally in Washington, D.C., on Friday.
The commentator garnered widespread attention following his appearance at the rally for saying “no pro-life person would kill baby Hitler” because “baby Hitler was a baby.”
Quip toothbrushes was the first to announce that it would no longer advertise with the conservative commentator’s podcast after he read an ad for the company at the rally.
“Our mission is to make good oral health more accessible to everyone, and podcast advertising is one way we’re able to realize this,” Quip said in a statement reported by HuffPost.
“Following one of our ads being read in a venue we did not endorse, we have chosen to discontinue our advertising relationship with this show. We are also taking steps to ensure all of our advertising partners are aligned with our oral health mission and values.”
Calm, a relaxation and meditation app, also pulled its sponsorship.
