Ad Feedback - Political Ads

After being a long time Pandora listener, I have stopped listening because of the political ad that runs over and over again. I will resume listening after (I guess) the next presidential election.

Am furious to have Mike  Lindell  ads my pillow guy interrupt my Pandora music.

I am not going to upgrade pandora for one huge mistake of his being advertised.

Unfortunately, the ads for BLM keep coming, which is why I will never give Pandora a cent! The idea for BLM is warranted but the Communist Socialist comments from their leaders and the donations going directly to the DMC is pretty telling. Wake up people...look up Demcratic Plantation, DEMS want to keep you down!

Those seem to be ad companies not the My Pillow or other actual company so who knows which one he uses?

agreed! now I feel like if I turn on Pandora I am throwing support to Lindell who I consider a traitor, a lunatic and a danger to our country. I can't do it. Why is Pandora doing business with him? Bummed! I need to find another source for music, because Pandora has introduced me to such great new music. Each time I have heard his ad, I cut off Pandora. If I turn it back on, even days later, the MP ad plays first thing. Call it cancel culture, but it's okay to cancel fascism.

I totally agree, but Pandora seems to not care about supporting MyPillow and what he represents. Therefore, I refuse to listen to them and have uninstalled them from all my devices.

In this case, it is not the "speech" in the ad itself it is what this company and its owner have come to represent, Hatred, Racism, Insurrection, and so much more. Just hearing the ad is from this person is so offensive that it frankly hurts.  Since his product My Pillow and ads have been removed by nearly every other corporation who in contrast choose products and advertisers that represent equality, justice, and democracy, I find it very hard to believe that Pandora has no stake in the message this person and his ads represent. 

In fact, My Pillow ads are the most common ads I hear on Pandora. Does Mike Lindell own part of Pandora?  I think I need to research the actual connections between Pandora and My Pillow. 

In any case, very very sadly because I have a couple of stellar stations created that I love, I am being forced to leave Pandora for another service. I would switch to pay status to avoid the ads, but knowing that Pandora supports injustice and anti-American actors is too much to overcome. 

I will keep checking the feeds and media to see if Pandora changes its stance or feel free to email me once you remove these type ads and I will come back.

I agree!! Especially when Mike Lindell has been taken off social medias, and  is being investigated by the FBI for his part in the insurrection and sedition!!! 

it's been tough to be listening to really good tunes and have a upbeat spirit and mood, and then hear his my pillow commercial come on! it totally ruined it for me! and I changed it to a to Spotify 🤦🏻‍♀️

His commercials need to be removed!

I’m not happy listening to the My Pillow ads. Surprised that Pandora still takes his money when so many have cancelled him and his conspiracy rants

Disappointed this company is a sponsor of Pandora. No chance I'd sign up for the ad-free version

This is great to know, however why are they supporting this evil by airing his ads?  That’s the bigger concern for me!

I want to ask you to take the My Pillow ads off of the air.  The man that owns that company has been directly responsible for disseminating false messaging about the election and whether directly or indirectly he takes some responsibility for what happened at the Capital on January 6th.  I certainly  intend never to give him a single dime and if Pandora keeps taking his money, I will stop listening.  There is lots of competition for streaming music now.   Thank you for your attention.

Everyone I know who uses Pandora is complaining about these BLM ads being forced down our throats. We are being inundated with them. I get it that Pandora is trying to demonstrate how civically responsible it is but enough is enough.

Come on guys, why take a wonderful service and do this to it?  

Ok I understand if I dont want to hear commercials, buy the premium service. But this was never a problem all the years I have been using this service until sales ads went from selling things to political propaganda

I've had enough of these ads as well.  Pandora would only need to look at my music selection to see I am not a target for these ads.  I'm moving on to I Heart Radio.  It may be the same over there, but I can't take this station anymore.

I totally agree!  Today, while listening to Pandora, I was shocked to hear an ad from the "My Pillow" guy. I was so offended, that I will no longer be listening to Pandora.  His behavior during the 2020 Election has had him banned from many large companies and I do not understand him being allowed to advertise on Pandora. It sickens me.  Goodbye to Pandora!

Why do I have to listen to BLM advertisements?

Lately when I've tested streaming Pandora, the MyPillow ads are the ONLY ads I hear -- Mike Lindell is a horrible person, and I have stopped Pandora and written it off my radar, and deleted it from my screens forever. 

Maybe the following article explains that Pandora and Lindell are sharing a pillow, and it's intentional.

Good bye and good riddance Pandora.
