Turning Point USA founder and president Charlie Kirk is calling for a boycott of clothing company Carhartt after an email revealed that the company would be continuing with their vaccine mandate despite the Supreme Court blocking President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate for large businesses.
An email was sent on Friday from Carhartt CEO Mark Valade to employees regarding the continuation of their mandatory vaccination program.
"Many of you have asked how the recent Supreme Court decision not he OSHA mandate for large employers will impact out associates so we want to provide some clarity," the email begins.
"The ruling does not change Carhartt's mandatory vaccination program, which went into effect on January 4th. As you know, we have extended the vaccination deadline for both RCV and Madisonville associates to February 15th. This date also remains in effect," the letter states.
"We put workplace safety at the very top of our priority list and the Supreme Court's recent ruling doesn't impact that core value. We, and the medical community, continue to believe vaccines are necessary to ensure a safe working environment for every associate and perhaps their household."
"While we appreciate that there may be differing views, workplace safety is an are where we and the union that represents our associates cannot compromise. An unvaccinated workforce is north a people and business risk that our company is unwilling to take," the letter concludes.
In response to the email circulating of Twitter, Kirk wrote that Americans should boycott the company.
"Carhartt is betraying their entire customer base of hard-working Americans by forcing unconstitutional Medical Tyranny on their employees, despite the Supreme Court's ruling. Stop buying @Carhartt until they reverse course - this is unacceptable," Kirk wrote on Twitter.
Other Twitter users jumped on board, joining calls for a boycott and condemning the letter.
Some have applauded Carhartt's stance on vaccines, vowing to buy more merchandise in place of those boycotting the company.
