Aflac pulls ads from Savage’s radio show
Responding to ring wing radio host Michael Savage’s recent comments that autism is “a fraud” where “99 percent of the cases, it’s a brat who hasn’t been told to cut the act out,” insurance giant Aflac announced that it will no longer advertise on his nationally syndicated show:
“Aflac has a strong commitment to helping children through the Aflac Cancer Center and Aflac Foundation,” said a rep. “We understand that radio hosts pick on any number of targets however we found his recent comments about autistic children to be both inappropriate and insensitive.”
This isn’t the first time an advertiser had ditched Savage’s show. Nearly 20 companies pulled their ads after the Council on American-Islamic Relations launched a campaign last year urging radio listeners to express their concerns about Savage’s hate-fueled remarks. His program reaches nearly 8 million listeners each week.</em>
Yeah to AFLAC, hitting this shit mouthed whore in the only place it hurts, the wallet. I have conservative friends who literally shudder at the mention of this horrid mans name. And the fact that he’s the third largest radio personality in the US, well, that tells me we’ve got a lot of fucking ignorant, hateful morons with just enough cash to buy a radio. I wish you all the karmetic hosing you so have earned, for letting this fool speak to- and for– you.
