Skip to comments.Olive Garden Pulls Letterman Ads
Posted on 06/18/2009 12:00:21 PM PDT by tonyome
Following a week of back and forth between CBS late night comic David Letterman and Sarah Palin over a crude joke he told about the Alaska Republican governors daughter, the Olive Garden restaurant says it is cancelling all of its scheduled ads on Lettermans Late Show for the rest of the year.
In an email to a Letterman critic obtained by POLITICO, a spokeswoman for the Italian restaurant chain wrote that there will be no more Olive Garden ads scheduled for The Late Show with David Letterman in this year's broadcast schedule, citing the talk show hosts inappropriate comments.
We apologize that Mr. Lettermans mistake, which was not consistent with our standards and values, left you with a bad impression of Olive Garden, wrote Sherri Bruen, the companys guest relations manager.
