Meanwhile, Jewish activists with the group If Not Now held a “Day of Jewish Resistance” in more than 30 cities to protest Trump’s pick of Stephen Bannon as his chief strategist. Bannon, who was the former head of Breitbart Media, has been called a “champion of white supremacists” by Nevada Senator Harry Reid and has been accused of domestic abuse and making anti-Semitic comments. A series of companies have begun to pull their advertising from Bannon’s former news site, Breitbart Media, amid increasing scrutiny of the site’s openly racist, sexist, homophobic and xenophobic views. On Tuesday, Kellogg Company pulled its advertising, saying the site didn’t align with the company’s values. Other companies, including Target, car insurance provider Allstate and internet service provider EarthLink, have also pulled advertising from the site. In response to Kellogg’s announcement, Breitbart claimed the company was being “un-American,” and demanded a boycott of Kellogg’s products.
