One day after Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building in an attempt to stop the certification of U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s victory by the Electoral College, Ryan Gellert, Patagonia’s CEO, posted the following statement on the company website:

”Patagonia condemns the assault on the US Capitol and all recent attempts to disrupt a peaceful transition of presidential power. We are also appalled by the double standard between the response to last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests and Wednesday’s insurrection. We support leaders from around the country who are calling for the president and his enablers to be removed from office immediately. We are committed, as ever, to doing our part to support our democracy and to ensure that it is equitable and accessible for everyone.”
