Google has reportedly stopped selling “Black Lives Matters” merchandise on its Google Store, following criticism of its support for the group.
The search giant is currently under fire for allowing the “Black-Lives Matter” movement to sell merchandise on their site.
On Thursday, Breitbart News reported that Google’s “Black Jobs” merchandise page was being taken down from Google’s search results due to concerns about the group’s anti-police rhetoric.
The company later stated that they are “reinstating the Black Jobs” item but the move came days after the retailer was forced to pull a similar merchandise page that had been available on their website for more than a year.
“We’re removing the Black Lives Matter merchandise from our Google Shopping Center in light of recent events,” Google spokesperson Ryan Bensch wrote in an email to Breitbart News.
“In light of these events, we’re also removing the sales of items that promote or endorse these organizations.”
The retailer then stated that it will not be making any additional sales on their Google Store until the issue is resolved.
In a statement to Breitbart Tech, a spokesperson for the Google Shopping Centre told Breitbart News that Google had removed “Black” from its Shopping Center due to “the extreme nature of their messaging.”
Breitbart News has reached out to Google for comment.
