Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on advertisers for Samantha Bee’s TBS show, “Full Frontal”:
For the past week, the Catholic League has requested its supporters to contact Wendy’s, asking the company to stop advertising on Samantha Bee’s show, “Full Frontal.” We succeeded. Wendy’s, which advertised on her show of June 13, did not run an ad on her June 20 edition.
According to a news story in the June 19 edition of the Los Angeles Times, commercial time on Bee’s show is off 75% since the host used the “c-word” to describe the president’s daughter. As we pointed out this week, Bee’s relentless assault on Catholicism explains why we will not let go.
Last week, we reported that the two companies we had targeted the week before, Verizon and P&G, pulled their ads; they advertised on her June 6 show but not the week after (nor did they run an ad on her June 20 show).
Our work is not done. Bee picked up a new advertiser, Ashley Furniture. We are asking everyone who helped to get Verizon, P&G, and Wendy’s to drop her show now turn their attention to the home furnishing company.
