Groupon cancels association with pornography group after Morality in Media boycott
Our take: Morality in Media, an anti-pornography organization founded by a Catholic priest, has been boycotting online "deal-of-the day" website Groupon for its association with a pornography business. By acquiring over 20,000 signatures pledging to boycott Groupon because of their undesirable business ties, the Morality in Media was successful in prompting Groupon to end the association.
The deal-of-the-day website Groupon has decided to discontinue its business association with a California-based porn group.
Morality In Media, an anti-porn organization that launched a boycott against Groupon over offering tours of a facility used by a business that sells torture porn, claimed victory.
Dawn Hawkins, executive director for MIM, told The Christian Post that while MIM cooperated with past boycotts, this was the first one the organization itself had headed.
"We are encouraged by the outcome and feel very confident in our united ability to challenge the pornography industry and the pornification of our society wherever possible," said Hawkins.
