In response to criticism of U.S. police departments in the wake of George Floyd’s death, Lego has decided to pull its advertising for building sets featuring police officers and the White House.

In an email sent to online retailers, the toy building block manufacturer wrote, “In light of recent events, Lego has requested the below products to be removed from sites and any marketing ASAP.” However, a Lego rep says the halt on advertising doesn’t mean the products will be pulled from stores saying, “we paused all marketing across our own social channels earlier this week in response to the tragic events in the U.S.”

The move comes one day after Lego pledged to donate $4 million to educating children on racial equality.
