Sponsors of 'Black Jesus' Take Heed

Sponsors of 'Black Jesus' Take Heed Monica Cole One Million Moms Director MORE

In our campaign concerning the program "Black Jesus," none of the sponsors 1MM contacted returned for either airing of the most recent episode. Supporters of both 1MM and parent ministry AFA contacted Hydroxycut (Iovate Health Sciences) and K12.COM/free, and after the joint effort neither company advertised during the past "Black Jesus." 

An email from Vito Sanzone, chief marketing officer for Hydroxycut, acknowledged the campaigns from AFA divisions of 1MM and AFA Action. "We are thankful to the American Family Association for bringing this program to our attention," the email read. "We have instructed our media agency to withdraw all advertising from this program permanently. We appreciate the AFA's voice in matters like this and applaud your members for the valuable input." 

The past episode of "Black Jesus" aired during two timeslots, but the dwindling number of sponsors shows few companies want to be associated with this program.                                                               

Please contact the company who sponsored TBS's anti-Christian "Black Jesus." Dollar Shave Club (dollarshaveclub.com) was the major advertiser who paid corporate dollars to promote products in association with the content of the program. 

Let this company know that their advertising dollars are supporting bigotry and animosity toward people of faith. We've got an email ready for you!
