The Corporate Response to Capitol Riot Reflects Growing Culture of Accountability
The extreme nature of the insurrection of the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters on January 6 requires that all actors involved be held accountable. In the week following one of the darkest days in contemporary U.S. history, the corporate world began to respond with its own calls for accountability. Companies like Starbucks, Axe, and Chevron all released statements on social media condemning the insurrection. The National Association of Manufacturers, a business lobbying group that has long been an ally of the Trump Administration, even released a statement calling for the President to be removed from office by invoking the Twenty-fifth Amendment.
