Ben & Jerry’s ice cream is standing by their partnership with Women’s March despite a report released Monday night alleging anti-Semitism through the ranks of their leadership structure.
From Daily Caller:
Ben & Jerry’s unveiled “pecan resist,” last month, describing it as a campaign dedicated to “[championing] those fighting to create a more just and equitable nation for us all.” They are partnering with four progressive organizations with this new flavor and they are Color of Change, Honor the Earth, Neta and the Women’s March. Part of the partnership included a $25,000 donation.
In a story published Monday night, Tablet magazine alleges that two of the founders of the Women’s March, Carmen Perez and Tamika Mallory, shared anti-Semitic views during the organizers’ initial meeting.
They reportedly said Jewish people have been proven to be the leaders of the American slave trade, despite the claim being disproven. Both of them have denied ever saying such things.
