In our campaign concerning the program “Black Jesus,” none of the sponsors 1MM contacted returned for either airing of the most recent episode. After 1MM supporters contacted Progressive Insurance, Monistat 1 (INSIGHT Pharmaceuticals, LLC) and Airheads Candy (Perfetti Van Melle, Inc.), not one advertised during the past “Black Jesus.”
During the most recent episode, domestic violence broke out over supposedly unpaid child support. Vandalism and over 40 profanities were also included in this episode.
This past episode aired during two timeslots, but the dwindling number of sponsors shows few companies want to be associated with this program.
Hydroxycut (Iovate Health Sciences) and K12.COM/free (online learning- public school option) were the major advertisers who paid corporate dollars to promote products in association with the content of the program.
Let these companies know that their advertising dollars are supporting bigotry and animosity toward people of faith.
