DETROIT (WWJ) – Seventeen hundred ‘thumbs up’ and counting on Facebook for Quicken Loans decision to pull their advertising from the Rush Limbaugh radio talk show.
Quicken Loans is joining the growing group of businesses that have pulled ads from Rush Limbaugh’s radio program.
WWJ’s Violet Ikonomova reports that two days after Limbaugh called a law student, Sandra Fluke, a “slut” and a “prostitute” for her testimony to Congress about the need for greater access to contraceptive coverage - Quicken Loans posted a Facebook status that has been getting a lot of attention.
It said it would suspend all advertising on Limbaugh’s radio show.
The move has received an upwards of 1,700 “likes” and more than a thousand comments.
Most people are praising the move, but there are a few who oppose the move saying that the talk show host’s comments were appropriate.
Several women commented that they’re ‘women for Rush’ and one even says Quicken has lost her as a customer.
