Default Michael Vick...

Dear Friends,
Please e-mail the sponsors of the Michael Vick Reality Show and express your opposition to their financial support of the program. As a result of their advertising, Vick is profiting from a lucrative reality television contract. This show must be canceled.

Of all the shows on television these corporations made a decision to support Michael Vick by advertising products during the show's air time. Some companies claim the 'didn't know it would be aired on Vick's program'. We feel they should 'know' who they are supporting.

Please help us send a message to the shameless sponsors of this show that we will boycott their products until they end their support of the program.

On behalf of the dogs Michael Vick fought, kicked, shot, hanged, electrocuted, drowned, and tortured...we thank you.

Sample letter to cut and paste:
Dear Sponsor:

As a result of your advertising Michael Vick is profiting from a lucrative reality television contract. This show must be canceled. A boycott of your products and services will be broadcast immediately.

You made a decision to support Michael Vick. HAVE YOU NO SHAME? Vick would not have this show if he had not killed these dogs. He's making money off his KILLING & TORTURING.

STOP your support!

On behalf of the dogs Michael Vick fought, kicked, shot, hanged, electrocuted, drowned and tortured.

Thank You.

Michael Vick said he cried in the first days of jail. Made me wonder how loud the dogs cried when they where being slammed on the ground.

I am surprised that L'Oreal would even support a show that Michael Vick is a part of because they hold their annual event L'Oreal Presents - Your Dog Is Worth It Too, Day

FootLocker answered that they weren't going to do any more TV advertising for a looong time--or, as the guy put it,"in the recent future."

Applebee's said that they had never intended to advertise on this show and that they yanked their advertising as soon as they found out about it.

General Motors thanked me for my interest in buying a new car.

THANK YOU for posting the list. Hmmm... so Buick drops Tiger Woods, but Michael Vick is OK to associate with?

I guess whoring around on your wife is MUCH MUCH worse than torturing dogs

I emailed all the companies mentioned with a very polite letter. Can't wait to see the lack of responses I get.

Oh, you'll get responses, all right. They have form letters.

Just FYI as somebody who works in media and ad scheduling - 99% of the time they have bought a daypart, not a part of one particular show. Their ad running during the timeslot that program is airing does not mean they are supporting that program.
