Toyota Donated To A Seditious House Republican And Now They’re Facing A Boycott

    Toyota donated to one of the House Republicans who voted against certifying Joe Biden’s win, and now some customers are threatening a boycott.

    Judd Legum tweeted:

    The blowback has been immediate and severe:

    The math is simple. Toyota only made a thousand dollar donation to the seditious House Republican. Back in 2015, Toyota made $2,726 on each vehicle sold. If their donation costs them a single customer, they will lose exponentially more money than the $1,000 that they donated.

    Boycotts don’t have to be large to cost corporations a lot of money.

    The lesson for big business is that people are watching. Campaign donations are speech according to the Supreme Court, which means that who a business donates to is a statement about their values or lack thereof as a corporation.

    If Toyota is choosing to support those who attack democracy, then their customers have the right to choose not to buy their products.

    Consumers in the free market have a right to not reward those who support sedition.
