A second sponsor, the Calm app, came to a similar decision in the wake of his controversial appearance. The company responded to social media criticism by confirming it would look into the complaint, ultimately announcing it would no longer advertise on Shapiro’s podcast.

“We do not align with this message,” the tweet stated. “We’re pulling our sponsorship.”
