NBC wouldn’t air ad critical of China, congressman says
A Florida congressman said NBC refused to show an ad he produced during their Olympic coverage that called out several American companies for sponsoring what he called the “genocide games.”
The advertisement, which you can see here, shows logos of Nike, Proctor & Gamble, Coca Cola, Intel, Visa and AirBnB.
NBA player Enes Kanter Freedom, a critic of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, also appears in the ad and urges consumers to “defund the dictators.”
NBC did not respond to NewsNation’s request for comment. The six companies in the ad either refused to comment or did not respond.
