Rush Limbaugh Advertisers Pull Commercials In Wake Of Sandra Fluke 'Slut' Firestorm...Agree ?

Several of Rush Limbaugh's advertisers announced Friday that they were pulling their commercials from his radio show in the wake of Limbaugh's incendiary comments about a female law student and contraception.

After being bombarded on Twitter, mattress store Sleep Train said that it would no longer advertise during Limbaugh's top-rated show following days of outrage over Limbaugh's statements about Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown student who was denied a chance to speak at a Congressional hearing about birth control.

"We are pulling our ads with Rush Limbaugh and appreciate the community's feedback," the company wrote in a tweet.

Later on Friday, another mattress company, Sleep Number, announced through a spokeswoman that it had also pulled its ads from Limbaugh's show. So did companiesLegal Zoom, Citrix and Quicken Loans.

All cited the nature of Limbaugh's statements, as well as the vociferous complaints they were getting, as the reason for their withdrawal of the ads.

Limbaugh called Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute," saying that she was having "so much sex" that she wanted the government to pay for her contraception. Then, he went further, saying, " if we're going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch."

The comments elicited fierce condemnation from politicians and pundits, and acampaign began on Twitter to ask Sleep Train to pull its commercials from Limbaugh's show.

Sleep Train, one of the biggest mattress retailers in the country, has been targeted before for advertising on Limbaugh's show. This time, though, the campaign worked.

Other advertisers are also fielding angry messages on Twitter.

    YES! 100% yes! He's a very sick man and has no idea what Sandra Fluke's point was about. It's easier for him to push his corporate message to his dumb-ass listeners than to tell the truth. Time after time he has done things like this. It's about time someone shut him down.

    On top of all his other sins, he took a trip to the Dominican Republic with four other men, and no women. On his re-entry to the US, he was found with 29 viagra pills, in a prescription in his doctor's name. Why would Rush bring at least 29 hits of Viagra with him when on a trip with other men? Could it be he was looking for prostitutes?

    It was just wishful thinking on the fat, druggo guy's part. Either that or he just took the viagra so he wouldn't pee all over himself as he usually does.

    That's the report i read.

    Since when is sex a medical condition that needs medical care.

    Men should pay for their own blue pills. Ritalin does screw up kids and should not be used. So what's your point?
