Last Thursday, five officers protecting Black Lives Matters protesters were slaughtered. It was a tragic day that shocked our Nation. But it obviously was not enough to shock the world’s leading online radio app, Pandora.
Pandora sent out messages via their social media accounts with an image that had another message.
The message from Pandora:
“We stand together. #BlackLivesMatter. #LoveAboveAll.”
Pandora calls for racial justice and makes no mention of the officers that were murdered.
This message has outraged law enforcement and supporters of law enforcement. There is a campaign underway for police and supporters of police to delete and unsubscribe from Pandora.
A quick search on Twitter with the hashtag #BoycottPandora reveals thousands of tweets calling for people to delete Pandora.
The Forth Worth Police Association posted a message on Facebook expressing disappointment with Pandora that they “choose division over unity.”
The Association urges law enforcement and supporters to delete the Pandora radio app from all devices.
It may be all we can do to express our displeasure but I am going to do it. Will you join me?
