According to the Wall Street Journal, JP Morgan Chase has pulled TV and online ads from NBC until after the network airs host Megyn Kelly’s controversial interview with InfoWars host Alex Jones on June 18.
An unnamed source close to the issue told the Journal “the company doesn’t want any of its ads to appear adjacent to any promotions for the interview.”
Earlier in the day, J.P. Morgan’s chief marketing manager Kristin Lemkau tweeted that she was “repulsed” that Kelly and NBC “would give a second of airtime to someone who says Sandy Hook and Aurora are hoaxes,” citing Jones’ infamous statements claiming that the aforementioned massacres were anti-Second Amendment “false flag” operations.
Despite publicized outrage from the families of children shot at Sandy Hook, J.P. Morgan Chase is the first advertiser to pull ads from NBC since the interview was announced.
