Companies are cutting ties with the National Rifle Association after Parkland students and gun control activists called for an end to their support.  In the past 24 hours, these companies have ended their relationship with the @NRA:Best WesternWyndham HotelsAlamo Rent A CarNational Rent A CarEnterprise Rent A CarFirst National Bank of Omaha#BoycottNRA — Michael Skolnik (@MichaelSkolnik) February 23, 2018 The hashtag #BoycottNRA topped Twitter's trends in the United States on Friday as a cybersecurity firm, six car rental companies, an insurance corporation, and a bank ended their partnerships with the NRA.  SEE ALSO: Parkland shooting survivors call for a march on Washington, D.C. Companies like Enterprise Rent-A-Car and MetLife previously offered discounts to NRA members, but have now terminated those programs. Although the companies didn't acknowledge #BoycottNRA in their announcements or take a stance on gun control, many did cite social media backlash as a reason to end their partnerships. Thank you for contacting us, J! All three of our brands have ended the discount for NRA members. This change will be effective March 26. Thank you again for reaching out. Kind regards, Michael — EnterpriseRentACar (@enterprisecares) February 23, 2018   We value all our customers but have decided to end our discount program with the NRA. — MetLife (@MetLife) February 23, 2018 A spokesperson from the First National Bank of Omaha told the New York Times that "customer feedback" was a leading cause for the company to not renew their NRA Visa Card program.  First National Bank of Omaha was one of the first companies to terminate their affiliation with the NRA.  #BoycottNRA is working! Companies are jumping ship. Keep it up! No need to spend your hard earned dollars at places that will pass it along to the gun lobby. — Q. Allan Brocka (@allanbrocka) February 23, 2018 In only a few hours, several more companies jumped ship, including Hertz and Norton. UPDATED: The NRA is being supported by these companiesThat's a lot of red lines.15 brands have severed ties. — Judd Legum (@JuddLegum) February 23, 2018 The move away from the NRA comes after the deadly massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on Feb. 14. Grieving students who survived the shooting have become passionate advocates for tighter gun control laws, and are leading the effort to end NRA-affiliated discounts.  David Hogg, one of the Parkland students, asked FedEx why it hasn't cut ties with the organization yet.  Hey @FedEx why do you support the NRA? — David Hogg (@davidhogg111) February 23, 2018 Amazon is also under pressure to end its relationship with the NRA. The e-commerce giant's streaming service carries NRATV, a show that recently published a controversial video claiming that "the mainstream media loves mass shootings." The hashtag #StopNRAmazon is picking up steam on Twitter, as once loyal customers threaten to cancel their Prime memberships.  Did you know there is something called NRAtv? And that it's carried by streaming service @amazon? We'd like to stop them from carrying this gun industry funded misinformation, which adds to gun violence throughout our nation. Please let @JeffBezos know. #StopNRAmazon — Evan Handler (@EvanHandler) February 22, 2018 Amazon and the NRA did not immediately respond to requests for comment. NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch, who faced Parkland survivors during CNN's town hall on Wednesday, has not released a statement about #BoycottNRA.  WATCH: These celebrities are getting behind March for Our Lives
