Here’s A List Of Entertainment Brands That Believe #BlackLivesMatter

A List Of Entertainment Brands That Believe Black Lives Matter

Normally, I don’t usually speak up when things happen in the world, because it’s a lot for me, emotionally. And the back and forth with folks on social media trying to “convince” people that Black lives matter is draining!

But as an Entertainment blogger and influencer, who has spent the last few months trying to make this dream of mine a reality, I realize that my words have power. I realize that staying silent isn’t really an option anymore. Not as an adult at least.

With that said, I took note of the brands that shared their support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement today on social media. Because these brands that we support, who make money off of our talent and consumption, should AT LEAST, at the very bare minimum, share a tweet in support!

And if they can’t even do THAT much for us, why should we consume their content? Why should WE support THEM?

If these entertainment brands can use Black creators, directors, writers, actors, producers, choreographers, photographers, etc., in their work, to market to our community, to help make them money, why can’t they support US publically?

Now I’m not telling you what to do today, and I won’t judge you for what you do, but I did want everyone to know what brands believe Black lives matter, and have shared so publically, and what brands have not.

I think it’s at least important for us to know where these brands stand. That way we know who we should REALLY be supporting when things go back to “normal”. Our Black dollars should be going to companies that care.

Here’s A List Of Entertainment Brands That Believe Black Lives Matter

The brands listed below (in alphabetical order) are brands that I saw tweet #BlackLivesMatter content, or at least retweeted others who have posted #BlackLivesMatter content. Because while it’s a very small thing to do, it does let me know that these companies are paying attention, and understand that we matter.

I will update this list tomorrow, (Monday, June 1st) since today is a weekend, and I’ll give some of these brands a tiny extension in case they don’t pay their social media team for weekend promotion.

(Can you hear the sarcasm? I’m still gonna wait it out a few hours to give them the benefit of the doubt, since that’s the kind of person I am.)

I just wanna say one last thing. The brands that haven’t shared any content related to Black lives matter today, don’t surprise me.

Disney is definitely disappointing, but I’m seriously not shocked. And I’m sure some brands feel that because they’re entertainment, they don’t need to speak on what’s happening in their communities – and to that, I say, if I, as a former marketing student (with currently a BA in Marketing Communications) who doesn’t use her degree remembers what she learned in class about companies taking a stand for community issues, I’m sure YOU as paying marketing employees also know.

And if your CEO’s are the reason you can’t post such things, now is the time to start looking for a new company.

Note: If you see any other entertainment brands that have shared content, feel free to let me know so I can update this list.


Sunday Updates Below

6:20 PM – Disney Studio finally posted something. But I’m still disappointed! They need to reflect this message on ALL of their accounts, not just one. So as I said we’ll see who posts over the next few hours. Tweets are still trickling in.

6:40 PM – Someone notified me that ABC also posted as well. Seems that the Disney brands are finally catching up to speed.

The following companies FINALLY posted something last night, late as hell to the party, but I guess right now a few hours later than their smart friends, is better than never at all:

  • Fandango
  • FOX TV
  • Lifetime
