One source described the Manchester-based social media team as “blue and purple haired lunatics”. However, the Vodafone boycotting saga has continued throughout the day…  

After a disgruntled customer messaged Vodafone directly and asked why they were boycotting GB News, a lefty loony working in Vodafone’s customer service explained that it was because of the channel’s promise to “combat so-called cancel culture”. The irony… 

The official Vodafone account then tweeted an apology, explaining that they “place our adverts in a broad spread of outlets” and they “haven’t boycotted GB News”. However, like Octopus Energy, Vodafone are waiting to “to make a commercial assessment of its [GB News’s] quality and reach”.

Vodafone, like many corporations, has junior people in customer-facing roles who are – in the age of social media – quite capable of dragging their brand’s reputation through the mud…
