Many companies today speak about corporate responsibility. And you do have a responsibility to families like mine and the millions of others who support you with our patronage. Yet as you sponsor programs such as The Cleveland Show on Fox TV, empowering the most offensive content on network television, you are demonstrating to me and millions of other consumers that you are a company not worthy of support.
Take a good look at the content you make possible with your advertising dollars. The April 29 episode of The Cleveland Show, which you sponsored, was disgustingly crude and offensive, even making light of the sexual abuse of children as it also mocked the disabled and derided the religious faith of millions.
What does it say about your corporation when it considers child rape and the belittling of wheelchair bound veterans the type of “entertainment” you align your company name with? Think of the impact these foul themes and verbiage have upon impressionable hearts and minds and upon our culture at large.
You have a choice, obviously, in where you place your ads. I, too, have a choice in where I do business. I urge you to withdraw all advertising from The Cleveland Show, Family Guy, and American Dad, on Fox TV.
I look forward to your response.
