David Letterman, pervert!: My Letter to Kellogg's

Dear Mr. Mackay;

No doubt you have heard about the offensive joke told by David Letterman on his program The Late Show. His joke involving the statutory rape of Governor Palin’s 14-year-old daughter was sexist and offensive in the extreme. As a long time consumer of Kellogg’s brand products (Corn Flakes, Eggo’s, Pop Tarts and Cheez-It), I am appalled to find out that your company is still advertising on Letterman's show. In doing so, I must ask, does Kellogg’s support statutory rape of 14-year-olds?

Until this question is publicly answered or your advertising is pulled, I can no long in good conscience purchase or recommend your products. To do so, I feel I would be supporting the hateful and spiteful things Letterman said and as Governor Palin said, further erode the self-esteem of young women everywhere.

I hope you will join all civil minded Americans and take a stand against Letterman’s misogyny and stop advertising on his program. To do anything less would be a shame.

Thank you for this. I also am sending letters, and have posted one at Red State and linked to your post in comments there as well.

I am glad for the opportunity to stand up for Sarah and her family. She has taken a lot of shots on our behalf.

But even more so, we need to stand up for our kids, and for what we know is right. Thanks again for your post, and btw, a google search of "Letterman Kelloggs" produced your article #2 result!
