More Companies Pull Ads from Wonkette Over Trig Post

Via LifeNews, more firms are pulling ads from Wonkette over a hateful post directed at Sarah Palin’s disabled son Trig. As is increasingly the case, Twitter was the locus for this spontaneous boycott. Here is what some of the companies involved were tweeting:

JJIll:  “All: Please know we do not condone the Wonkette story. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We have taken action to remove our ads.”

Holland America Cruises: “Thanks for letting us known, we have blocked that page from running our ads.” Nordstrom: “Thanks for letting us know. The ads have been removed. We’re sorry to disappoint you.”

Reliant Energy: “Thank you for alerting us. We did not choose this site and are working to have this removed immediately.”

Bob Evans: “Our ad is not supposed to be running on that site. Agency has been alerted to pull it immediately.”

Coldwell Banker:  “We are in the process of pulling our ads from Wonkette.”

DealSwarm: “We’ve pulled our ads from the site — we wouldn’t have approved them running next to that blog post. (Trig is a cutie pie.) Thank you for alerting us — we weren’t aware our ads were running alongside a blog post like that. Ads have been pulled.”

MetroPCS: “We don’t condone @Wonkette, have removed the ad and ensured that our ads won’t appear on this site in the future. Thanks for bringing to our attention.”
