Not long after Yeti coolers announced that it no longer wants to do business with the National Rifle Association, one company made it very clear to customers it firmly supports the Second Amendment.
In an email to its members on Friday, the NRA revealed Yeti notified them it will no longer do business with its Friends of the NRA Banquet and Auction events.
Here’s part of the NRA’s email to members:
“Suddenly, without prior notice, YETI has declined to do business with The NRA Foundation saying they no longer wish to be an NRA vendor, and refused to say why. They will only say they will no longer sell products to The NRA Foundation. That certainly isn’t sportsmanlike. In fact, YETI should be ashamed.”
“They have declined to continue helping America’s young people enjoy outdoor recreational activities. These activities enable them to appreciate America and enjoy our natural resources with wholesome and healthy outdoor recreational and educational programs.”
On Sunday, RTIC Coolers — a direct competitor to Yeti — posted on its Facebook page one picture: the text of the Second Amendment.
The post has gone viral with more than 192,000 likes, 9,500 comments, and more than 69,000 shares.
Many on Facebook applauded this post:
Here’s how Twitter users responded to Yeti ending its relationship with the NRA:
@YETICoolers It amazes me that a business would take sides on a political issue when knowing it will offend or alienate probably half of the population…….STUPID! My 3 YETI products are in the trash!

The simple post sent a bold message: RTIC supports the Second Amendment and will not cower to calls from the liberal mob to infringe on Americans right to bear arms.
Many of the comments on RTIC’s post on Facebook have been from people slamming Yeti for cutting ties with the NRA. Many also said they will no longer be buying its products.
