Ads for some well-known companies are showing up on extremist channels on YouTube., A CNN investigation found ads for 300 brands, including Hershey, Hilton, Nordstrom, Netflix, and Amazon on sites for white nationalists, nazis, and extremist views.

One of the worst examples is the Toy Association ads running on a pedophilia positive channel. They have since stopped monetizing that channel.

Last year, several YouTube sponsors pulled their ads from the number one video network after “Buzzfeed” found them appearing on videos promoting extremism and hate speech.
