Streaming platform Hulu rejects abortion campaign ads leading to Twitter boycott oasisamuel/

Streaming platform Hulu has caused a mass Twitter boycott after rejecting abortion campaign ads.

After Hulu rejected an abortion ad campaign by American Democrat party member and politician Suraj Patel, as well as ads on the topic of gun laws, and suggested they be changed for ads on taxes, democracy or infrastructure, a viral hashtag began trending on Twitter.

The hashtag “Boycott Hulu” has seen thousands of Twitter users post their opinion on the matter:

“Abortion, Climate Change, and Guns are all important issues. But seriously… I’m tired of Political ads. So I’m not really feeling #BoycottHulu”

“Looks like Disney & Hulu gonna go through some things. Like women boycotting them! Also most of the country that is opposed to gun violence & preference to not have a nationalist dictator attempt a coup on the country. Not a great move, could trigger #BoycottHulu”

“The Disney-backed streaming service Hulu is refusing to run political ads on central themes of Democratic midterm campaigns, including abortion, guns and the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, prompting fury from the party’s candidates and leaders.”

“So people want to #BoycottHulu because they want MORE political ads. Politics have really fried the brains of everyone in this country.”

“Some people have nothing going for them other than to be angry and bitter about something. Politics and politicians provide that outlet. American politics on one side is such a joke.”
