Deranged Attacks on Trig Make 3 Advertisers Pull from Wonkette

In a still developing story, Vanguard Financial, Huggies, and Papa John's Pizza pulled their advertising from the Wonkette Blog following the site's disgusting and deranged ad hominem attacks directed at three-year-old Trig Palin on his birthday in response to a Tweet posted by his mother, Governor Sarah Palin. A look at the responses to her Tweet will take you on a journey through the most depraved depths of humanity. The deranged attacks directed at Trig stem from extreme leftist resentment over the fact that Gov. Palin carried him to term. Fully 90% of pregnancies where the fetus is diagnosed with Down Syndrome are aborted.

According to Ken Wheaton, Advertising Age, decent people from both the left and the right demanded that advertisers pull their ads saying the "post was beyond tasteless."

"Know what doesn't go over well with advertisers? Making fun of disabled children," Wheaton wrote.

Here the logos and links to the advertisers who stood up and did the right thing.


H/T, Josh Painter, Texas for Sarah Palin for story lead.
