Boycott SlimFast's filthy mouthed spokesperson, Whoopi
http://nypost.com/seven/07092004/news/nationalnews/24791.htm ^

Posted on 07/10/2004 3:53:31 PM PDT by InHisService

July 9, 2004 -- Whoopi Goldberg delivered an X-rated rant full of sexual innuendoes against President Bush last night at a Radio City gala that raised $7.5 million for the newly minted Democratic ticket of John Kerry and John Edwards. Waving a bottle of wine, she fired off a stream of vulgar sexual wordplays on Bush's name in a riff about female genitalia, and boasted that she'd refused to let Team Kerry clear her material.

"I Xeroxed my behind and I folded it up in an envelope and I sent it back with a big kiss mark on because we're Democrats - we're not afraid to laugh," she said.

Already sent it out from another post.

Sent the following message:

After reading about the "Hatefest" Democrat Party in
Manhattan, N.Y., and the words that were spoken by the participants,
including Whoopie Goldberg, I and my wife wish you to know
we will not be purchasing Slim Fast any longer.
We, instead will be opting for Wal-Mart Equate brand,
or some other product that is more to our liking, and way of thinking.

All the diet meal companies (Slimfast, Lean Cuisine, Weightwatchers, etc) donate heavily to the Democrat party. I don't know why, either.

Done. I was polite, except when I called her their 'pig of a spokesperson'. Otherwise, I was very direct and polite.

I think you provided Slimfast's link on another thread. Took advantage of it, and here's my message to them:

Just writing to say that if Woopi remains spokesperson for your product, my entire family will no longer use any of your products.

There are plenty of competitors out there whose products taste and work as well as Slimfast products.

I always thought of Slimfast as a wholesome company, and I know Whoopi became spokesperson before her recent vulgar rant, but it is now up to you to make certain she doesn't infect your products image with the same vulgarity.

Here's what I wrote:

That foul-mouthed pig of a spokesperson, Whoopi Goldberg, ought to be canned by Slim-Fast. Her obscene, filthy remarks at our PRESIDENT at John Kerry's fundraiser have guaranteed that I will never buy any of your products again. Too bad because I like your products, but I'll find good replacements. You're not the last company in the world, and I want nothing to do with a company who has a spokesperson who trashes our nation's leader. Shame on Whoopi and shame on your company if you don't fire her.

Here is my letter to Slimfast:

After hearing about Whoopie Golberg and her vulgar, disrespectful and insulting words about the United States President, at a partisan Democratic fundraiser, I question her ability to represent Slim-fast.

If she continues to represent your product I will stop buying it immediatly. Iwill findish the two cans of powder I have and find alternative products.

Realize that when Goldberg insults our President, particlarly in such a vulgar fashion, she alienates half the country....can Slimfast really afford to lose half of their potential market?

Speaking of Whoopi cushions...

I was thinking of trying SlimFast, not because of a weight problem, but more for a lack of appetite. Oh well, they have store brands that are probably the same thing at a more reasonable price.

I think Carnation Instant Breakfast is really good and tasty...loaded with nutrients too. They have a variety of flavor packets (powder). There's always Ensure too, but it's pricey and taste like medicine.

Carnation Instant Breakfast is the most inexpensive way to go. Put a glass of milk, the mix, maybe a banana (or other fruit) in the blender, and you're good to go. My mother's doctor gave me this advice when my mother lost her appetite while terminal with cancer.

Here's mine:

I'm sure that you have heard about the tasteless remarks that Ms. Goldberg made at a political fundraiser recently. What Ms. Goldberg does during her comedy routine is one thing, when she does it at a political function, and aims filthy remarks towards the President, then that is something else completely.

You might want to consider hiring a spokesperson with more class.

Sincerely,

I think she falls into the Hollywood Squares category like the rest of the "has beens". Notice most of the Bush Haters celebs are old timers still living in the 60's?

I think using SlimFast was scraping the bottom of the barrel for an advertiser as well. You actually know anyone that uses that stuff?

Losing money is the only thing big business understands. I have discovered that SlimFast's parent company is Unilever.It may be even better to write them directly. Unilever We can take on an agressive campaign to boycott ALL their products.

Edwards said it was "a great honor" to be there and insisted, "This campaign will be a celebration of real American values [sic!]."

Kerry thanked all the performers for "an extraordinary evening," hailed the "great producers" - Harvey Weinstein of Miramax and Jann Wenner - and said "every performer tonight ... conveyed to you the heart and soul of our country [sic!!!]."

Hollyweird does NOT represent American values, or the heart and soul of our country, in any way whatsoever!!

This election is shaping up to be a contest between anyone with decent or Christian values (whatever his or her usual political leanings) and the moral FILTH and POISON represented by Hollyweird and the media and advertising community, the feminazis, and the gays. I vote NO to all of them!!!!

As for SlimFast, it doesn't work anyway, in terms of long-term weight loss and health. Don't beleive their hype, whether spread by Whoopi the Obscene or by anyone else. Boycott SlimFast for ALL the right reasons!!!!

By the way, I see from your screen name that you are a Christian, as I am. May God bless you!!!!

Thanks for the link. Here's what I emailed them:

I am writing to let you know that I will do everything in my power to dissuade people I know from using your products until such time as Whoopi Goldberg is removed as spokesperson. Her vulgar and tasteless diatribe directed against the President of the United States was not only inappropriate, but also reflects negatively against your company. I want you to know that should you choose to support Ms. Goldberg and her foul-mouthed remarks, it will adversely affect your image in the minds of as many people as is within my power to do. Please do the right thing and replace her with someone that more Americans can respect.

Forget Slimfast- it's just a subsidiary. Notify the parent corporation Unilever. They own Lux, Birdseye, Pond's, Dove and a bunch of other products. Let them know you're not just boycotting Slimfast, but all their products! Click here to contact Unilever

Here's what I wrote:

I use your products several times a year when I want to take off some quick weight. However, I cannot support your company as long as you have this woman as your spokesperson. While you pay her, she represents you. She did not do you well the other night. If you feel strongly about her, go ahead and keep her on. Your business will go down. I guarantee it. I'll find another product to use as will everybody I speak to. This just wasn't Whoopi giving her opinion as a US citizen, this was a crude, drunken tirade. It's your choice, it's who you want to be as a Company. I wish you good luck with your decision.

Avoid Carnation Instant Breakfast. One of the main ingredients is Maltodextrin (basically hydrolyzed cornstarch). This is a high glycemic starch and will wang your blood sugar around and promote fat gain. Verra bad.

Check out MRP's (Meal Replacement Powders) like Prolab's Lean Mass Matrix. It is more expensive but much, much healthier.

http://www9.netrition.com/prolab_matrix_mrp_page.html

I recommend the Cinnamon Oatmeal. They also make a low carb MRP (or you could just use less powder), but I don't think it's quite as yummy.
