AOL Limbaugh, Move comes as criticism of talk show host’s comments grows during weekend of grousing over the Internet, Rush Limbaugh may own the talk radio airwaves but he’s clearly losing the PR battle against critics who mobilized over the Internet in the days since he described a Georgetown law student as a “sl*t” and a “prostitute.”
On Monday, AOL became the eighth advertiser to suspend sponsor support for his daily talk show program. The others include Sleep Number, The Sleep Train, Quicken Loans, Legal Zoom, Citrix, Carbonite, and ProFlowers.
“At AOL one of our core values is that we act with integrity,” the company said in a statement on its Facebook page. “We have monitored the unfolding events and have determined that Mr. Limbaugh’s comments are not in line with our values. As a result we have made the decision to suspend advertising on The Rush Limbaugh Radio show.”
A spokeswoman for AOL was not immediately available for comment.
Limbaugh made his original comment last week after the student, Sandra Fluke, testified before congressional Democrats to support nationwide health care rules to require employers to cover female birth control. That led to a groundswell of criticism on social media channels over the weekend with calls for advertiser boycotts.
