Townhall: Group Calls Out Amazon, Twitter, Youtube, and More for Promoting Sexual Trafficking and Exploitation

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation released its 2018 “Dirty Dozen List” Monday that names the year’s top facilitators of sexual exploitation in society and culture. The annual list features mainstream companies that allow the promotion of sexual violence, prostitution, and even media that exploits children.

“Our Dirty Dozen List gets results,” Haley Halverson, Vice President of Advocacy and Outreach at the National Center on Sexual Exploitation said in a statement. “It has instigated changes at institutions like Google, the Department of Defense, and Hilton Worldwide, which is why we continue this impactful initiative year after year.”

“We are talking about mainstream corporations and services like Apple’s iBooks, Google’s YouTube, Roku and Twitter,” she emphasized, “which the American people use and interact with every day on a mass scale— and which simultaneously promote or profit from messages of incest, the dehumanization of women, sexual violence and even racism and child exploitation.”
