The business announced on Twitter they had suspended the effort out of Telewizja Polska (TVP) following an individual informed them.
A Carrefour ad was displayed online alongside news reports about Poland’s LGBT community, such as a quotation from Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski about a”rainbow jolt”.
Carrefour’s headquarters said on Twitter the articles”didn’t correspond to the provider’s worth”.
“After getting the report we stopped the continuing campaign”.
Poland is among only six European nations not to legalize same-sex union and many cities in the nation announced themselves”LGBT-free” last year following a push in the ruling Law and Justice party.
The mind of TVP, Samuel Pereira, has hailed the decision by Carrefour, saying that Telewizja Polska is an”information portal” that”hasn’t had a rainbow jolt’ column”.
“Such columns are located in most media,” added Daniel Liszkiewicz, the head of journalism in TVP.
But in a further announcement, Carrefour’s branch in Poland affirmed the decision to suspend financing wouldn’t be changed.
“The ad indicated in the article was erroneously displayed in link with the automatic order of marketing campaigns on VOD platforms,” Carrefour Polska stated on Twitter.
“We instantly reacted by clarifying it and implementing more powerful exceptions with this kind of automatic marketing campaigns”.
“Our community has no plans to modify its marketing policy up to now.”
Carrefour Polska stated its policies forbid their promotion campaigns from being showcased alongside subjects like racism, violence, and gender.
The retail chain functions in over 900 shops across Poland.
“We decided to not post our advertisements on material that doesn’t reflect the values of tolerance, respect for different individuals, or respect for diversity”
“Carrefour Polska is a business which adheres to the greatest standards regarding the diversity of its clients, employees and business partners”.
In February the French city of Saint-Jean-de-Braye stopped official connections with Tuchów from Poland on its approach to LGBT rights.
Conservative politicians state the declarations protected kids and conventional Polish families from a growing gay rights movement.
However, in July, the European Union refused grants under a twinning program to six cities due to their approach to the LGBT community. Poland reacted by declaring that the country would rather fund the”LGBT free” cities.
Before this month, Brussels additionally declared its first-ever plan for attaining LGBT equality.
“EU values and basic rights should be respected by both member nations and public government,” tweeted EU Equality Commissioner, Helena Dalli.
