Trump Calls for Boycott of Goodyear Over Their Ban on Workers Wearing MAGA Gear

Gage Skidmore via Wikimedia Commons

A report indicating that the tire company Goodyear Tire outlawed employees from wearing MAGA attire has prompted President Trump to call for a boycott of the company.

According to Fox Business:

The president’s tweet comes after Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company’s zero-tolerance policy was made public.

A Goodyear employee at a plant in Topeka, Kan., shared a slide that he said came from the company’s corporate office in Akron, Ohio. The slide, reported by WIBW, showed two categories: Acceptable and Unacceptable.

Under “Acceptable” were Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride (LGBT).

Under “Unacceptable” were Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter, MAGA and politically affiliated slogans or material.

Goodyear responded following Trump’s tweet where they stated that the policy visual was not created or distributed by Goodyear corporate.

UNACCEPTABLE!!!! I will be boycotting Goodyear – no “Blue Lives Matter” but “Black Lives Matter” is OK? NO WAY! No MAGA? No WAY!

These companies won’t learn unless boycotts hit them in their pocketbooks!

Goodyear can take a flying leap, sounds like they promote violence siding with BLM and Antifa. They are not the only people who manufacture tires.

Hercules brand or Cooper tires over perform, have road hazard, and are around 50-67% of the cost of Goodyear tires.

Why would GY side with the left when commiecrats don’t really buy that many tires? A lot of them can’t even drive or are forbidden to do so by law.This is a classic case of the left being bad for business especially when you allow the left to infiltrate your business.

I don’t know the truth of whether Goodyear listed BLM and gay promotion items as acceptable, but Second Vote appears to list Goodyear as having a politically neutral company policy. I will not boycott Goodyear until I know more of the fact. I do boycott companies that support leftist causes and organizations. I do rely on Second Vote.

Boycott until the truth comes out which it will because they are probably lying to cover their butts.

Precisely. However, if Goodyear doesn’t take strong action to DISavow the message, vocally and publicly so, I’d still be inclined to lean towards somebody that doesn’t have such internal issues.

It would not be an issue for them to ban certain clothing if they were doing it across the board but since they are not I would side with Trump. When I read the headline I thought Trump was being too harsh, but after seeing the list of acceptable items for BLM, etc. then it became clear why the issue came up.

Here is one of several websites that shows the slide, and the response from Goodyear: “Goodyear is committed to fostering an inclusive and respectful workplace where all of our associates can do their best in a spirit of teamwork. As part of this commitment, we do allow our associates to express their support on racial injustice and other equity issues but ask that they refrain from workplace expressions, verbal or otherwise, in support of political campaigning for any candidate or political party as well as other similar forms of advocacy that fall outside the scope of equity issues.”

That’s a disgusting policy. Clearly discriminates against Trump and Law Enforcement. I was in the process of buying 4 new tires from Goodyear for my classic Mustang, but that has now changed. I will buy from a competitor like Firestone, BF Goodrich or Uniroyal instead. Thank you for bringing these travesty to my attention.

What happened to freedom of choice What gives Goodyear the right to choose how people express their opinions or their political views. Companies that only require their misguided opinions on political agendas and force their employees to at hear to your values and opinionated views. Is this only for y’all liberals democrats and not for other. Maybe y’all should re-evaluate that because you’re the boss your not a dictator.
THE SOLUTION IS SIMPLE LET SLEEPING DOGS LIE WHAT’S GOOD FOR THE ONE SHOULD BE GOOD FOR ALL. Political views should be left at home and not the work place.

I disagree with President Trump on this one. As a conservative, I believe generally a business should be allowed to make reasonable requirements of its employees to convey the impression the business desires. I prefer businesses that don’t convey a political position, but instead offer good products or services. If these employees were to wear clothing that conveys a promotion of liberal politicians or causes, I would be inclined to boycott the business, and the employer has a right and is reasonable in wanting to avoid an impression of politicizing its operations.

Goodyear tires are overpriced and underperforming. Their like Remington guns. If you want a quality tire buy Hercules brand or cooper tires. If you want a good gun look at savage. If you want a good inexpensive self-defense pistol buy a sccy 9mm with red dot or a high point in 9mm or 45acp.

I would go along with Goodyear banning ALL gear,but when it’s selective banning, I’m very much against it.Both my auto and RV needs new tires this year,and I can assure them it won’t be a Goodyear tire this time.

What a disgrace…An American company supporting a terrorist organization. Just another Anti-American company added to my list of loser companies to not do business with. When I get my next leases for my two new cars in December…if the tires are Goodyear. No signed lease unless they are changed to tires by a company that is Pro American.

It surely didn’t take Goodyear stock long to start a downward trend!
I wouldn’t have been so enraged if they had banned ALL political items from both parties but, it is so unfair for rich powerful companies to try and influence the elections in a biased way and in this case Goodyear has also condemned our American principles by being against law enforcement and for the marxist domestic terrorists! By now, I believe most people of average intelligence have figured out the riots have nothing to do with social justice and everything to do with the destruction of our country!
This is the same thing Americans from BOTH parties should loudly condemn as being the same thing Russia, China, North Korea. and other countries are guilty of. This, of course, is worse since it is a American Corporation!
Goodyear corporate has denied this came from them……..if true, they should be loudly broadcasting it to the American people. This is going to “bigly” hurt them in the wallet!
