While many actors in Hollywood are more famous for their political activism than for their movies, the tech industry is often criticized for lacking diversity.
Netflix’s and Twitter’s combined $12,000 donation is a drop in the bucket for the executives, but could help shore up good public relations about their support for minority political organizations like Black Lives Matter.
The donations were from Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and Twitter Executive Chairman Omid Kordestani, according to Fortune.
Will the reported Netflix and Twitter executive donations be enough to improve McKesson’s polling numbers?
He’s polling at 1 percent https://t.co/DlsqqQqvY0
