Mondoweiss reported on how Ben & Jerry’s was encouraged to take this step: https://mondoweiss.net/2021/07/it-shows-that-bds-works-wafic-faour-on-how-a-group-of-vermont-activists-got-ben-jerrys-to-move/?utm_source=mailpoet&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=daily-email-mailpoet
Mondoweiss also interviewed Ben & Jerry’s cofounder Ben Cohen about his reaction to accusations of anti-Semitism. He found the accusation absurd, saying, “OK, I mean, What? I’m anti-Jewish! I mean, I’m a Jew, all my family is Jewish, my friends are Jewish.” Video of the interview with the Jewish co-founders of Ben & Jerry’s can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mwoiAUM6nA&t=8s.
