If so, please post it. Thank you.
Got one back from Mars.
In response to your email regarding MARS SNACKFOOD US. We are writing in response to your recent communication which objects to the placement of advertising on David Letterman. We appreciate your concern and thank you for taking the time to contact us. While we do not “sponsor” television shows, we do contract for commercial time months in advance for those programs which we feel effectively reach our consumers. As a matter of policy we make every effort to avoid programs containing exploitative examples of ethnic, racial, religious or sexual stereotyping. We apologize if we were unsuccessful in this instance, and we will share your comments with our advertising agencies. Our loyal consumers are very important to us, and we thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention. Have a great day! Your Friends at Mars Snackfood US MM/HERNLIND010961364A Please do NOT reply to this email.

Thank you for sharing. Nothing yet on my end.
I got the same exact letter.
The nappy headed faggot?
Yes, from Mars.
Nothing from See BS. I would be surprised if I had.
Right - me either.
I got the same one as TexasBeth in post #2. (MARS)
I had a very specific reason for contacting them as I am one of their subscribers and volunteered to pull my membership -- instantly.
Best Western site was incorrect info and I've not attempted to get the correct one as I really do NOT utilize their businesses.
Good for you!!!
I got the same one from Mars.
Good. Nice reply, and we know they heard from at least a handful of us. I bet they tell their advertising team to avoid advertising on Letterman again. I hope they also contact CBS.
I did contact Best Western and did get a response. Sort of along the line of “Don’t blame us the media buyers did it.” But they responded because my husband and I travel and we had previously stayed several nights at their hotels.
Mars did respond to me with the form letter.
The Olive Garden has not responded to me as yet.
I got a reply from “On the Border” restaurants - just acknowledging receipt and passing on to the marketing dept.
Not one word.
I am pleased to report that we have received enough volunteer leader commitments from the now 2,253 people on this mailing list to make a FIRM DECISION to go forward with a planned FIRE DAVID LETTERMAN RALLY, currently scheduled to be held from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm this Monday June 15 outside the Ed Sullivan Theater, located at 1697 Broadway in New York City.
If you live anywhere within a 4 hour driving distance of New York City, please plan on attending this event. Bring your own signs (be creative but PG rated!). We will be announcing more details over the weekend so stay tuned.
We need more volunteers to help our "Project Servant-Leaders", so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can provide some time.
Laureen Cummings has agreed to serve as our "Project Servant- Leader" responsible for our Media Relations.
Marie Wilkinson and others have agreed to share "Project Servant-Leader" responsibilities in the Social Media arena.
We have volunteers for our logistics and volunteer coordination areas as well, and will be announcing the names of that leadership group over the weekend.
Keep telling your friends on the internet and in person to sign the letter to CBS asking them to fire David Letterman at our website, http://www.firedavidletterman.com .
Two additional pieces of news to show that we and others are already making some progress:
1. CBS has received so many negative comments about Letterman they have shut down the comments section of their website.
2. A leading New York State Legislator, Brian Kolb, publicly called today for CBS to fire Letterman.
Thanks for all your help.
Stay tuned for news over the weekend about how you can help make this coming Monday's "FIRE DAVID LETTERMAN RALLY" a success !
Michael Patrick Leahy
Thank you for the info!
Not at all.
Right - they either did or are going to extend him.
