Companies who learned their commercials have been airing on a new show about the Duggars are none too happy, and making sure their ads do not run when TLC airs its new program Jill and Jessa: Counting On.
InTouch spoke with seven companies who were not only upset when they heard this news, but also said they were taking measures to make sure it would not happen again on the network.
The companies included; Cici's Pizza, The UPS Store, Verizon Wireless, Pure Michigan, White wave Foods, Choice Hotels and Mattress Firm.
Cici's said; 'When we learned one of our ads was placed adjacent to controversial programming, we took immediate action to stop it.'
The UPS Store meanwhile said the show would be put 'on our list of exclusions as well as any other potential Duggar programming.'
Verizon said they did not intend to be on the show and had no control where their ad ran while Choice Hotels said if an ad ran it was an 'error of the network.'
Pure Michigan may have been the most firm however, saying; 'We contacted TLC immediately after learning about this mistake, and have been assured no Pure Michigan ads will run on this program moving forward.
'The Counting On program does not meet our brand guidelines.'
Can't hardly blame these companies. After sex abuse and incest do not exactly sell more pizza and wireless phones.
I don't know who thought it was a good idea to put these grifting hypocrites back on TV, but I hope they enjoy the backlash from their advertisers.
