THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Wow, how the mighty has fallen — in the pocketbook at least! Thanks to social media and twitter, we’ve hit him where it matters most. I’ll let the
seven nine sponsors speak for themselves:
Sleep Train: “We are pulling our ads with Rush Limbaugh and appreciate the community’s feedback.”
Sleep Number: Recent comments by Rush Limbaugh do not align w/our values, so we made decision to immediately suspend all advertising on that program.
Quicken Loans:“Due to continued inflammatory comments . . . QL has suspended ads on Rush Limbaugh program.”
Carbonite: “Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency. Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show.”
ProFlowers: “Mr. Limbaugh’s recent comments went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company. As such, ProFlowers has suspended advertising on the Rush Limbaugh radio program”
LegalZoom: “LegalZoom has decided to terminate all current and future advertising with ‘The Rush Limbaugh Show,’ effective immediately. Our company does not in any way support or endorse the recent comments of Mr. Limbaugh.”
Citrix Systems Inc: “We have listened to our customers & have decided to cease our advertising on The Rush Limbaugh Show immediately..”
AOL Inc: “We have monitored the unfolding events and have determined that Mr. Limbaugh’s comments are not in line with our values.”
Tax Resolution Services Co: CEO Michael Rozbruch said his firm is ‘pulling ads for now.’
