(THE BLAZE) — Banking and finance giant J.P. Morgan Chase pulled its advertisements Monday from NBC because of the controversy surrounding Megyn Kelly’s decision to interview fringe conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Kelly was criticized roundly for the interview, which will air Sunday.

According the Wall Street Journal, J.P. Morgan Chase has decided to pull all of their TV and digital ads from the network until after the interview airs.

J.P. Morgan Chase’s chief marketing officer, Kristin Lemkau, tweeted, “As an advertiser, I’m repulsed that @megynkelly would give a second of airtime to someone who says Sandy Hook and Aurora are hoaxes. Why?”
