DARIEN CENTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Six Flags Darien Lake is pulling its paid advertisements on social media platforms starting Wednesday.
The company has said it wants to ensure it is investing “in platforms devoid of hate speech and harmful content.”
Six Flags released this statement Wednesday morning on Twitter:
In support of this belief, Six Flags has decided to pause all paid advertising on social platforms beginning on July 1. During this social media break, we are going to reassess our internal policies and re-evaluate our external partners. We expect our social media partners to transparently and consistently assess their content, holding themselves accountable for the need for impactful change to their platforms.
Six Flags is just one of many companies that has decided to reassess where it is spending its money in the new social climate.
