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.
XXXXXXX & XXXXXXX
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.
As you probably know, Ms. Goldberg recently made highly disrespectful remarks about the President of the United States.
I know that spokespeople are selected to present an image of a company to consumers. I hope that this is not the image that you would like associated with your organization.
Although I enjoy your products and have used them for quite some time, I cannot comfortably continue to purchase your products so long as Ms. Goldberg remains your spokesperson.
I hope that you will reconsider her as a representation of your organization. Please keep in mind that every individual has the right to express their personal views, but when they do so in a manner that alienates a large percentage of the population, the image that they represent becomes tarnished, to the point that their endorsement of a particular product or organization is actually detrimental.
I hope that you will not send me a simple form letter saying that you do not agree with her rhetoric, but that she has the freedom to express her views, because when you choose a spokesperson, it is not only their celebrity personality that is affiliated with your organization, but also their character.
