Coke, Delta, Aflac, and other Georgia companies face boycott threats amid voting restrictions

Pressure is building for high-profile companies in Georgia to express firmer opposition to a sweeping new law that will restrict voter access and make it more difficult to vote there.

Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines bore the brunt of boycott threats on social media over the weekend after it released a statement praising some aspects of the law and noting that it “improved considerably during the legislative process.”

Similarly, Coca-Cola is facing boycott threats after it released a statement “expressing our concerns and advocating for positive change in voting legislation” but fell short of taking a stance against the law.

Other companies facing criticism include The Home Depot and insurance firm Aflac, the latter of which is headquartered in Columbus, Georgia.
