David Green, the CEO of Hobby Lobby, donated millions of dollars to “White Lives Matter.”
However, Misbar's investigation finds that American Buffoon is a satirical news site that calls itself the “PeeWee’s Playhouse Of News.”
The article goes on to say: "Green is no stranger to such controversies, including using the company’s 'religious beliefs' to successfully challenge a provision of Obamacare. Now Green has inserted Hobby Lobby into the ‘Black Lives Matter’ conversation. His move was donate to ‘White Lives Matter’ claiming that his store’s key demographic had been persecuted for things like purchasing multiple ‘Live, Love, Laugh’ frames for their homes, bedazzled crucifixes, or really loving Starbucks’ pumpkin spice lattes.”
People may have believed the satirical article because of Hobby Lobby’s past controversies, including anti-Semitic and anti-LGBT remarks as well as choosing to stay open during the pandemic. It is also known for donating to Christian evangelist groups.
However, Green did not donate millions to White Lives Matter.
