Below is a list, thanks to @JamieLPrewitt on Twitter, of companies who gave in to that request.

This follows in a longer line of leftist organizations targeting advertisers of people they feel are engaging in wrongthink, like Infowars and Breitbart.

Update: On May 30th 2017, USAA has announced it will recommence advertising on the Sean Hannity show
