A sexual exploitation watchdog added social media app TikTok, e-commerce platform Wish, credit card company Visa and others to its 2020 “Dirty Dozen” list, which the watchdog says has elicited change at major corporations.
The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) also called out companies including Amazon and Massage Envy that are carryovers from its 2019 list.
“In 2020, it is intolerable for a mainstream company or entity to facilitate, profit from, or normalize sexual exploitation — and that’s why the Dirty Dozen List exists,” Haley McNamara, NCOSE’s vice president of advocacy and outreach, said in a statement.
“This year, for the first time ever, the Dirty Dozen List has become a Dirty ‘Baker’s Dozen’ List, with the addition of Wyndham hotels which are currently being sued by the [NCOSE] Law Center on behalf of a child sex trafficking survivor who was serially raped in these hotels,” McNamara said.
