Apple CEO Tim Cook says the company will donate $1 million to the ADL


Apple’s CEO Tim Cook pledged that his company will donate $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League and $1 million to the Southern Poverty Law Center in the wake of the violent protests in Charlottesville.

Apple will also match employee donations to these and other groups two-for-one through September, according to a memo Cook wroteWednesday night obtained by Buzzfeed News.

Cook said he strongly disagrees with President Trump’s comparison between the neo-Nazi and white supremacist protesters and those who opposed their rally in Charlottesville.

“Hate is a cancer,” Cook wrote. “This is not about the left or the right, conservative or liberal. It is about human decency and morality.”
