Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the latest development in the league’s battle with Samantha Bee:
Just a few hours ago, I issued a news release asking our supporters to email Ashley Furniture requesting that it pull its sponsorship of Samantha Bee’s TBS show, “Full Frontal.” We just received a statement from the company saying they were going to do just that.
“Thank you for bringing us your concerns about Ashley HomeStore’s advertisements which aired during ‘Full Frontal with Samantha Bee’ to our attention.
“The reprehensible comments made by Samantha Bee in no way represent the culture, beliefs, or core values of Ashley HomeStore.
“Ashley HomeStore has made the decision to discontinue advertising during this program.”
We congratulate Ashley HomeStore for its decision. We also congratulate all of those who contacted the store.
Please patronize Ashley HomeStore—they represent our values.
