UPDATED: Papa Johns, Huggies Pull Ads from Wonkette After Revolting Post About Trig Palin

     

This is what needs to be done and thanks to sites like Twitter and to citizen journalism, it can happen. Papa Johns was alerted to the beyond odious post on Wonkette and, as a result, they say they are taking steps to ensure their ads no longer appear on the sewer slime trash site.

@robertcurlin Thank you for alerting us to this. We’ve taken steps to make sure our advertising doesn’t appear on that site in the future.

If you choose to be disgusting and vile in order to garner the attention – and traffic spikes – you so desperately crave, don’t be surprised when that attention backfires when those with common decency are outraged and call you out on it. And when advertisers use their right to pull their ads from sites that publish absolute filth. Well done, Papa Johns.

Additionally, cut their traffic and cut more advertisers.

As for me, I’m ordering Papa Johns for dinner tonight. With bacon, which is just an added bonus.

UPDATE:

Huggies also pulls ads

@Huggies: All – We do not support the @Wonkette story & have taken action 2 pull r ads, effective immediately. TY 4 bringing this issue to r att’n!

    Bravo to both companies for pulling their ads; Huggies especially, due to their target market.

    And no matter how much one would ever disagree with a public figure (on either side of the aisle), I can't see going after an innocent child, let alone a disabled child. That is beyond the pale: so low there is no describing how low it is.
