If the Never to Yield Foundation gets wind of this, they could call for Auburn fans to boycott Facebook.
Have you ever dreamed of a social media page newsfeed that was free from Auburn fans? You may just get your wish.
If you don’t know what the Never to Yield Foundation is, it’s a collection of tin foil hat wearing nut jobs. Even my Auburn friends don’t claim them if that tells you anything.
In their mission statement on their website, their “secondary mission is to help combat the negativity that is directed at Auburn by its detractors, by the media and by anyone else who seeks to do our family harm”. Not kidding.

The foundation likes to call for Auburn fans to boycott anyone that does something that can cause their family harm. They called for a boycott of radio station WZZN as well as all of their sponsors over Scott Moore’s claim of tapes that would incriminate former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton. This same group didn’t seem to care that current Tide player Rashaan Evans was getting hateful tweets but told him to put on his big boy panties.
Now, Facebook could be in their sights.
The news came out on Thursday that Brodarious Hamm had enrolled for classes on The Plains. That in itself is wonderful news. Hamm is battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma and will sit out this year but according to 247Sports, his long-term prognosis is good.
If you are on Facebook, you’ll know that the website shows related stories at the bottom of some of the posts. Check out the first result under the great news for Hamm.
The very first “related article” is negativity that is aimed at the Auburn family. I can hear the keyboards firing up somewhere in Lee County, Al.
Here is the deal. If you are choosing which businesses you trade with or support based on any of the reasons listed above or if you think it’s okay for a high school kid to have to face slander on social media because of the school he picked, you need serious help.
If a boycott of Facebook does come, I sure hope Mark Zuckerburg can recover from the tin foil hat folks leaving because they are fed up with the attacks on Auburn. Good luck with your future campaigns against everyone that doesn’t spread the news like you want it.
