Slim Fast Letter Just Sent To Me
Slim Fast E-Mail | 7-14.04 | Kathi Eckler

Letter from Slim-Fast Just Sent To Me

Kissimmee, FL 34744

Dear Douglas M.... ,

Thank you for contacting us recently about our use of Whoopi Goldberg, specifically regarding her remarks made at the recent fundraiser at Radio City Music Hall. The manner in which Ms. Goldberg chose to express her personal beliefs at this event do not reflect the views and values of Slim·Fast Foods Company.

Slim·Fast selected Whoopi Goldberg as its spokesperson because of her commitment to losing weight, which we applaud.

We are disappointed by the manner in which Ms. Goldberg chose to express herself and sincerely regret that her recent remarks offended you. Advertisements featuring Ms. Goldberg will no longer be on air.

We appreciate you sharing your views with us and we hope you will continue to use Slim·Fast as your partner in healthy weight management.

Sincerely,

Kathi Eckler Consumer Services Manager

I think you should reply to this letter and let them know that their decision was just, and you will once again consider their products for purchase.

I saw another post on this subject and It just warms my heart to see the almighty pocketbook working. SlimFast knows ousting her is great PR and Whoopie will just cry "censorship by the Republicans!!!" Whhhaaaaaaaaa

Oh, I'm sure she will...no doubt about it.

But...I don't care.

I'm elated over this! After being bummed out over the senate vote today, this was the perfect night-cap!

Sure they will, now she can play the "victim" card, perfect. I can see Katie and Woopsie crying together any day now.

Seriesly. This calls for a cheeseburger.

You should feel real bad! Where's your compassionate conservativism? Whoopie has lost her gig with Slim-fast. Just a few weeks ago NBC cancelled her sitcom.

Now, she's going to be out on the street begging for handouts and trying to wash car windshields at intersections for a buck.

Out in all that traffic, some car might run over her foot. And it's all your fault for putting her out on the street.

Perhaps it takes longer to yank print ads. Wait and see. And complain again if necessary

I just heard a lib guest of Hugh Hewitt say that Slim-Fast's actions (dumping Whoopie) was not related to the real heartland of America not appreciating what Whoopi did while a presidential hopeful was laughing and applauding. These libs can only continue in their delusional world by practicing tremendous denial.

He who laughs last, laughs best:

$250,000 from Slim-Fast Foods Co. President S. Daniel Abraham. To The Largest Democratic 527's

ACT and the Media Fund receive support from the Joint Victory Campaign Committee, which yesterday reported raising $1 million from New York philanthropist Lewis B. Cullman; $505,000 from AgVar Chemicals President Agnes Varis; and $250,000 from Slim-Fast Foods Co. President S. Daniel Abraham.
