The number of companies cutting business ties with the National Rifle Association continues to grow in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
FedEx is feeling pressure after a barrage of social media posts from Marjory Douglas High School students and celebrities telling them to drop the organization.
Amazon is also in the hot seat, as many celebrities are asking them to remove NRA TV, the organization's public relations channel on Amazon Prime. Streaming services like Google Chrome and Apple TV are also feeling the pressure to drop the channel.
The NRA lashed back at companies who are caving to public pressure on Twitter, with a spokesperson writing, "The loss of a discount will neither scare nor distract one single NRA member from our mission to stand and defend the individual freedoms that have always made America the greatest nation in the world."
