Tensions flare in the United States after the uncalled death of George Floyd. Protests have been taking place around the country for six days, and this time, the corporate world has also spoken up! Nike, Adidas, Facebook, Netflix, Disney, and L’oreal are some of the brands that have supported the #BlackLivesMatter cause. These brands stand tall and condemn the racial injustice prevailing in America.

Companies like Nike have taken action swiftly by taking a much more public stance on racial profiling and police violence.

Here are the various brands that have joined the #BlackLivesMatter movement:

  1. Nike

The sportswear giant has released a campaign, “For once, Don’t Do It,” playing smartly on its tagline, urging people to stand up in solidarity and stop racism.
