Quicken Loans Suspends Advertising with Rush Limbaugh Following Inflammatory Comments

Quicken Loans has decided to suspend any and all on-air advertising with the Rush Limbaugh radio program, citing “inflammatory comments” coupled with valuable feedback from both clients and employees. This news comes from Cleveland Cavaliers majority owner and Quicken Loans CEO Dan Gilbert.

Limbaugh, a nationally-syndicated political radio personality who lasted all of three weeks as a color commentator for Monday Night Football, derided a Georgetown University law student, who was a representative in a contraception hearing, as a “slut” in addition to other comments which have drawn the ire of many.

How long the company will suspend advertising on the radio program is yet to be determined.

    The founding fathers are rolling over in their graves!  Freedom of speech, a double edged sword.

    So a sports outfit joins the march to political correctness?  Is it worth it to you to sacrifice our right to free speech just to pander to a bunch of hateful Liberals? You are playing with our freedom, and it will come back to haunt you, in one way or another.

    How very understanding of you. Yes of course, we must silence Limbaugh and anyone else who does not respect our tender ears.
    Only if they are Conservative of course.
    Now can we get back to cheering and celebrating the death of Brietbart?

    It’s the place where you can meet millionaires, who are searching for their special someone. It’s worth a try!(@^_^@) 

    Thank you for suspending all on-air advertising on the Limbaugh show.  I hope you consider cancelling all advertising.  Mr. Limbaugh is entitled to a civil discourse on any topic, however when his talk turns vile and repulsive, it’s time to consider cancelling his show.Like
