Toyota Faces Boycott Calls Over Donations to Republicans Who Voted Against Certifying Election
“Do better, Toyota,” actor/activist George Takei tweeted while others said they canceled their car orders.
Toyota is facing boycott calls — some from high-profile figures — after a weekend report revealed the company donated to Republicans who voted against certifying the 2020 election results.
Over the weekend, Axios published its findings on corporate PACs that donated to the Republican lawmakers who voted against certifying President Joe Biden’s 2020 win in the aftermath of the deadly Capitol riot. The January 6 riot was an attempt by supporters of then-president Donald Trump to prevent the election results from being certified. Five people died.
Although Axios found that almost three dozen corporate PACs donated to those Republicans, the report noted that Toyota donated the most “by a substantial margin.” In all, Toyota dispersed $55,000 among 37 of those Republicans.
