Multinational consumer goods company Unilever announced it would halt advertising on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter in the U.S. for the rest of 2020. The company's portfolio includes brands like Ben & Jerry's, Dove and Axe.

Unilever's EVP of Global Media Luis Di Como said in a statement: "Given our Responsibility Framework and the polarized atmosphere in the U.S., we have decided that starting now through at least the end of the year, we will not run brand advertising in social media newsfeed platforms Facebook, Instagram and Twitter in the U.S."
