Sleep Number, an advertiser on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show, announced on Twitter that they are pulling out. “Recent comments by Rush Limbaugh do not align w/our values, so we made decision to immediately suspend all advertising on that program,” the tweet reads. Earlier today, mattress retailer Sleep Train announced that they would be pulling all of its advertisements from the program after being besieged on Twitter by angry customers.
Yesterday, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) said:
So I say to the women in this country, do something about this. I say to the women of this country, ask Century 21, Quicken Loans, Legal Zoom, and Sleep Number to stop supporting the hate-mongering of Rush Limbaugh and if they do not do that, then I ask them to boycott those companies.
We need to take a stand now against his revolting behavior. Sign the petition and let Sandra Fluke know that you are on her side.
