Conservative commentator and radio host Ben Shapiro has reportedly lost a second advertiser following his speech at the annual March for Life anti-abortion rally in Washington, D.C., on Friday.

Calm, a relaxation and meditation app, responded to users condemning Shapiro's speech about "baby Hitler" on Twitter, writing late Friday night that the company did not "align with" Shapiro's message and that it would be pulling its sponsorship.

"We do not align with this message. We’re pulling our sponsorship," Calm wrote on its official Twitter account.

We do not align with this message. We’re pulling our sponsorship.

The Hill has reached out to Calm and Shapiro for comment.

Calm's announcement appears to be the second sponsor to pull its advertisements from Shapiro's podcast after his speech Friday.

The commentator garnered widespread attention following his appearance at the rally for saying “no pro-life person would kill baby Hitler" because "baby Hitler was a baby.”

Quip toothbrushes was the first to announce that it would no longer advertise with the conservative commentator's podcast after he read an ad for the company at the rally.

“Our mission is to make good oral health more accessible to everyone, and podcast advertising is one way we’re able to realize this,” Quip said in a statement reported by HuffPost.

“However, following one of our ads being read in a venue we did not endorse, we have chosen to discontinue our advertising relationship with this show. We are also taking steps to ensure all of our advertising partners are aligned with our oral health mission and values.”

Shapiro read ads for multiple sponsors in his speech, during which he simultaneously recorded an episode for his podcast, HuffPost reported.

Shapiro, 35, is editor-in-chief of conservative news website The Daily Wire. His podcast “The Ben Shapiro Show,” is downloaded more than 10 million times every month.
Saying people are the product of their environment is racist.

Shapiro is fucking notorious for his casual shilling. Tried listening to his radio show after he replaced Michael Savage and he couldn't go five minutes without bringing up Black Rifle Coffee or Dollar Shave Club. Like fuck, can't he just wait till he's heading for a break or coming back from one and not shoehorn it in? It's kind of his own fault for this fiasco.

Not wanting to kill a baby is hardly exceptional. Unless of course you subscribe to the idea that evil is related to genetics like some kind of nazi.
All it does is give people you disagree with the high ground. I know you think shapiros dick is delicious but it was a huge misstep for him to say he wouldn't kill hitler when his opponents already call him a nazi.

This is a regular thing with talk radio and to some extent the internet broadcasted shows. Limbaugh, Hannity, Crowder, they all do it. Unsure about the liberal side of things but I assume things are the same there. Can't say for certain as my folks and co-workers don't listen to that side of things.
