Speaking on Thursday night, Mr Neil dismissed the Stop Funding Hate group, which published a list of companies whose adverts were seen on GB News in a bid to starve the channel of advertising income.
Mr Neil claimed the group were opponents of a free society and said firms which kowtowed to their demands were acting as the “useful idiots of bigots bent on censorship”.
He added: “It is quite remarkable that serious executives and well-established companies can be so easily cowed.
“They have all taken the knee to Stop Funding Hate. It is important they – and you – realise to whom they are in thrall.
“Stop Funding Hate does not stand for a liberal, inclusive society. It is dominated by far-Left agitators and cranks that push for advertiser boycotts of any media organisation with which it disagrees.”
