Companies virtue signaling for Pride month are being cut down to size by woke politicians exposing their donations to anti-LGBTQ politicians. The same politicians with whom the corporate wokesters were trying to court favor do not appear to be buying the messaging they're selling.

Representative Pramila Jayapal has recently taken to outing companies on Twitter for changing their profile photos to rainbow logos, despite donations to Senator Mitch McConnell who opposes the Equality Act.

One of these tweets caught the attention of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who called the tweets "this week’s guilty pleasure."

Responding to the tweet from Ocasio-Cortez, Red State Deputy Managing Editor Brandon Morse called the backlash a "teachable moment" for companies who "thought they'd be safe from being eaten by the beast if they fed it."

Despite this backlash from woke politicians, the same politicians were overwhelmingly silent on these company’s drastic differences in international logos versus logos displayed on Middle Eastern or African accounts of the same companies.
