Following the shooting earlier this month, a number of companies promised to stop offering discounts to the National Rifle Association. For their part, however, FedEx decided not to sever ties with the organization and continue to offer discounts of up to 26 percent to NRA cardholders.
"The NRA is one of hundreds of organizations in our alliances/association Marketing program whose members receive discounted rates for FedEx shipping," the company said in a statement. "FedEx has never set or changed rates for any of our millions of customers around the world in response to their politics, beliefs or positions on issues."
As a result of this decision, Blink-182 have vowed to ship their merchandise through a different company. Read bassist Mark Hoppus' statement about the decision below.
.@fedex has chosen to continue its business relationship with the NRA, despite its board member pushing conspiracies against children who survived Parkland. I've directed our representatives to stop using them, and encourage you to do the same. #BoycottFedEx— snddoɥ ʞɹɐɯ (@markhoppus) February 27, 2018
